    Trimming brass... the worst part of reloading...

    I hate trimming brass. Of all the steps in making bullets and loading them, trimming is the one I dislike most. What trimming set ups are you guys using? Have you been able to do anything to speed up the process?

    I've got the RCBS Manuel trimmer. But, I've taken off the handle and attached my 3/8 drill; making trimming brass a wee bit less irksome.  

    If we ever stop moving (the wifey now wants our own "forever" home here in St Louie) I'll buy that Dillon 650. With it will come a Dillon auto trimmer, likely to be chucked into the RCBS Rock #ucker.

    I have a trimming set-up I bought from Sinclair, but I've never used it. I guess it's because I reload pistol ammo only. I have reloaded a sum total of about 30 rounds of .30-'06 and have dies for .223, .300 BLK, .308, and .45-70. The last takes a bigger tube to drop in a Dillon and something else, but I forget what. I have it in a box.

    My .20 tactical hasn't yet walked enough to have to bump the shoulders, so it's neck sized, and it seems to work fine.

    That Dillon trimmer looks quite neat. You size the brass, trim, chamfer, and deburr it all in one step. I could live with something like that!
