After a couple years of hand processing cases by the hundreds , I came to the conclusion that enough , was enough . After doing a bunch of research on the subject of case trimmers , it came down to just two that held my attention . The finalists were the "new" RCBS Trim Pro-2 , and the similar unit from Redding .
I chose the RCBS unit for several reasons , but the main one was having to make few , or no change-overs of plates , etc .
The Trim Pro-2 has the spring-loaded shell holder that accepts our rimmed cases beautifully , and holds them very tight while trimming is being done . Adjustment is very easy , and it has a fine adjustment wheel that give .001 adjustments very accurately .
It took all of ten minutes to open it , unpack , and set it to be trimming cases . If you get the "Kit" ; it comes with nine (9) different pilots , and of course , does not have one for the .311/.312 , but I used the .308 pilot , and found it to be extremely accurate . Out of forty-five cases turned , no case had more than a .001 , ( one thousandths ) variation in length .
If you are looking for a trimmer for the first time , or looking to replace your current worn-out trimmer , I highly recommend taking a look at the RCBS Trim Pro 2 , with the spring-loaded shell holder . A outstanding piece of equipment ...
