I have one that spends 99% of it's life on a shelf collecting dust. Have 1K of brass to trim? Drop by and do it all in an hour. You buy a pizza. Rifle brass only. I have the bits for 6.8 and .223 - if you need to trim something else, you have to buy the bit set ($35).

So much faster, accurate and easy compared to every other method I've tried.

You know, there are few people who contribute as much to this site as you do. I don't need any trimming, I just wanted to say Kudos to you.

Aw hell you all would do the same. What use is a tool that spends 99% of it's time on a shelf

BTW - I got my NFA Trust example tacked in General Class III and locked so I don't have to debate every knuclehead from 50 states about what they may, or may not require.

I'm actually kinda suprised Tony K did it for me - or for would-be NFA owners.

Thread

We all have to stick together, or move to PA/VA/WV

That option becomes more and more appealing every day.

Bother I just might take you up on that.

What kind of toppings do you like on your pizza?

Interesting, reads very similar to the trust that is setup in my will. I wonder if that would work for NFA items. Hmm I'll have to check with my lawyer.

Not picky at all - anything - even anchovies

Same as some of the language in my will, taken in part from my parents will. Worked for me - 2 cans, 1 SBR.

Got my chrono back

Bump

There is a trimmer in my garage that has gone unused since before I posted this. Free use of a trimmer?

Truth is I work for Doug Giraud on a % basis - see once you use mine, you will want your own!

I'll be by my friend, first though I have about 1000 .223 cases to run through the sizer.

And here I've been using the RCBS hand-cranker.

I only shoot maybe a thousand centerfire rounds a year anyhow (easily 90% of my shooting is .22LR), so I'm fine with the manual trimmer.

But I'll keep you in mind if I can ever afford a machinegun or something.

I'll echo the sentiment that it is nice to know other people out there care enough and are generous enough to help out the community.

Bring 'em - I have 2 presses in the garage and a LNL AP with case feeder that will make short work of them.

Well now you have the perfect excuse to buy a machine gun. I mean - what the hey - I am saving you $400

My buddy has one and he loves it. What county are you in? Pizza is a cheap price to get the 2k of brass done.

Damned trimmer is lonely. I have a paltry amount of .223 and 6.8 to trim. It will take longer to change the blades than it will to trim the brass

Wish I were still in NOVA; I'd make the trip north of Baltimore.
