I haven't seen any mention of this trimmer but after reading some reviews of individuals who have used it, I have decided to give a Dead On Trimmer a try.

Below is a vid of what it looks like & how it works.

Dead on Trimmer Demo

The trimmer uses a micro adjustment every .001". Uses case specific inserts.

Base trimmer is $70. Carbide is $85. Comes with one insert. $20 for each additional insert.

Anyone here try one yet?

Looks like a WFT with a micrometer adjustment ability.

I just bought a WFT for 5.56/.223 but haven't done more than a handful of cases to check repeatability. Gotta sell the RCBS trimmer and get a 6.8 WFT. I have 5.56/6.8/9mm/.45/ maybe still .308 in the RCBS.

I don't have a drill press for a Dead On Trimmer, but if can be chucked in a drill and still be precise, it might be worth getting in 6.8 if they have them.

Just did some quick research on it and a few guys on sniperhide use it in a cordless drill with excellent results. Feedback on the guy (Dustin) who mfgs/sells them is A+ as well. I will be getting one to try.

If I did not already have the WFT in .223 and .308 I would get one of those.

Real happy with the WFT trimmers so far.

Several good reviews in a couple Facebook reloading groups. I haven't bought one yet but considered it. I just like using the RCBS 3 way trimmer too much to go back to manual chamfer/debur.

The guys on the 68forum have bought some and said they are great. So, yes he does make some for the 6.8 SPC.

The Dead on is what I wished the WFT was when I had one. That micrometer adjustment is priceless on that IMHO.

If I didn't already have a Giraud I would jump on one of those.
