Looking to buy a reasonably priced case trimmer. Going to use on 223 and 300 blackout.
Any suggestions on what to get? What to not get.
Thanks

I'm not sure if they make a trimmer for 300bo, but I know they make one dedicated to 223.
I followed his setup and it works great.
About $100 per trimmer

I have the Lee trimmer that goes in a press is used with a drill
You buy the trimmer itself then buy the different dies/sleeves for your needs
I use it for 223 and 300blk
They have a hand crank version but my laziness knows no bounds

This is what I have ended up using for my common calibers. Works well, fast, and accurate once adjusted properly.
Each to his own, but this works for me..Bill.

Wow. That's way too expensive for me.
I'm doing something like 1k of .223 and 500 .300 blackout
I’m referring to the Tri-way by Giraud.

Thats the way to go and is the best $100 I’ve spent, I tried to cheap out with the WFT, I sold it after one use and bought another Giraud. I can process 500 pieces brass in less time it takes to watch an episode of married with children.

My Giraud, failed after 31 pieces of brass. The center bushing was incorrectly machined and held in with red loc tite, that never set up. After having @?@?! To Doug, I said I'm a machinist, ill fix it. After machining up a bushing, and recutting the snap ring grove, the unit still wobbled like a bent bolt. I grabbed an old lock ring from a die set and that (kinda) fixed it.
Take your chances, I would not recommend there cutter.
