WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! So my G Trimmer arrived yesterday. I got it out and started using it tonight on my mass of 308 brass. I was averaging 20 pieces a minute. a rate I can live with. I did about 1/2 a 15 quart bin of 308 brass, somewhere between 700 and 800 pieces. I'll knock out the other half of that bin Saturday night............but wow............this thing is sweet. thinking I am going to have to end up getting some other caliber conversions for this......wish there was one for the 50 Beowulf.

I love mine as well. I bought an extra set of blades for my second caliber 762x39 so I don't have to adjust them

My Giraud is prominent on my very short list of "the best money I ever spent".
Trimming is no longer a chore to be dreaded, but a semi-pleasant way to kill a couple hours. I use mine outdoors, and as I'm trimming, I can watch the birds and other critters out here in the wilds of Arizona; the Giraud doesn't require my full attention.

The thing I hate about my Giraud is the blisters on my fingers from doing 1000's of brass at once...god it is fast and accurate.

I have one on my list of things to buy. Luckily my friend has one and lets me borrow it. I can borrow it for a weekend and get a lot done.

Four of us went together and bought one. 223 and 308. We all love it.

This is true.........you really do so many, your fingers get tired of holding the brass.........they do not have time to rest.

I wear gloves...now I have duct tape wrapped around the hole in my glove....and I still get blisters...especially with the 308 brass...
