    Now that I am reloading for an AR I needed a faster way to trim cases I have been buying plus the ones I shoot. The lee trimmer works okay but is slow. You have to load a case in the holder, trim to length, debur... it is a lot of steps.

    I had seen these online so bit the bullet and bought one. Little Crow Gun Works Worlds Finest Trimmer. It uses a regular end mill to do the cutting and the case goes into a bearing. It trims to length off the shoulder of the case also. Trimmer chucked into my cordless drill, grab a case, sin it up insert case, cut, grab next case... you hold the cases in your fingers so not slow loading into a chuck.

    I ran 557 cases in a little over 2 hours and they were part of a trade so I had some to short so a lot of caliper use checking them for length. This thing is slick and I will not go back to lee trimmer for bulk rifle reloading.

    Hard to get good focus but a nice clean flat cut with no burs

    What was the cost and where can readers get one if they're impressed?

    I use the Possum Hollow Kwick Case Trimmer. Same basic principle - It runs off the case shoulder instead of the base, so it's not as precise as a traditional trimmer, but it's a hell of a lot faster. The Kwick Case Trimmer can be had for $25 and the power adapter to chuck it into a power drill can be had for another $10. It's a little cheaper. Not sure about if it's easy to replace the cutter, though.

    2 set screws on this and the cutter comes out. Also how you adjust case length. Out of 100 random samples I was +- .001 inch for length... probably the accuracy of my calipers!
