I did a search and didnt find anything. Has anyone used one of these things? I have a good amount of brass that i need to get through and this looks like the ticket. Just wanted to hear if anyone had any dealings with them. possum hollow

Great little product if you also get the power adapter. I use it to do .223 and bought a second power adapter to hold the trim/debur tool. The Possum Hollow tool is hard to beat for the money, IMO.

You need a $40 drill press from Harbor Freight to go along with it. That is of course if you don't already have one.

i bought this drill from harbor freight a few years ago. use a 20% coupon out of the NRA mags to make it even cheaper


i have trimmed, chamfer and deburred thousands of 223, and the thing is still growing strong.

i also bought a few of these and just clamp it to the end of my bench with a trashcan underneath to catch all the shavings

Just finished using mine about 15 minutes ago. Works great!

I love them. I have one in .223 and another in 7.62x39. I put it in the power adapter and chuck it in my drill, which is mounted in a vise. It's quite fast on trimming, but the cases do require a chamfer and deburr afterwards.

My Possum Hollow trimmer works well, but I definitely need to get the power adapter. I used a hand-powered Hornady decrimper to decrimp a little less than three hundred rounds a while back - my hand was cramped and hurt for about three days. And the decrimping takes less effort than trimming. I'm putting off trimming them until I get the power adapter. So yeah, I need one

I run mine on a cheapo drill press from Home Depot.

Been doing that for a long time.


One of these days I will upgrade, but at the average rate of around 20 a minute to trim, I cant complain.

I thought I purchased another trimmer but I cant find the thing :(
