    Importing quick trim dies

    Im looking for a lee quick trim die in 300saum, I cant seem to find one in nz so looks like I will have to import one, I see midway have them but they are damn near impossible to purchase anything from so im wondering if anyone can suggest any other avenues I might try?

    If you send them to me with the trim length I'll do them for you on my sinclair trimmer

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    300saum - nice cartridge.

    300 Rem Short Action Ultra Mag Custom Overrun Qt Die - Lee Precision

    I think they will send you one, but get some other bits there as well if you do buy from them to make the postage worth your while.

    Maybe one of these?

    Auto Bench Prime - Lee Precision


    On the other hand I do prefer my Foster trimmer, does a very nice job. Purchase a collect set and mandrills and you can do just about any cartridge.

    Caliber Search - Forster Products

    you need collet no 3 and the 30cal case trimmer guide.

    Thanks for that offer @mikee, half the forum would have had a part in preparing my brass by the time im done! haha, @nzfubz very kindly cleaned and tumbled all my brass (probably a good 5-600 cases) in his awesome wet stainless tumbler, just got it back today and it looks and feels great! Its not out of spec yet but I would just like to give it all a little trim so I know im starting out with nice uniform brass before I start load development, next on my shopping list is a tumbling setup and a sinclair trimmer, allthough I have traditionally just used the quick trim dies for 270, 260, 30-06, and 270wsm (270wsm not used as yet) as im a lazy bugger and it really is quick and easy.

    Have a look at "Worlds Finest Trimmer" if you are going to import.
    www.littlecrowgunworks.com
    I got one but haven't got around to using it yet. Looks the bizz on the video.

    Titan Reloading or Lee Factory Sales

    Titan Reloading is a Master Distributor of Lee Precision

    http://www.factorysales.com/

    I've used them both and both are excellent to deal with.

    Titan usually has the best prices and lowest shipping options, but not always.

    Cheers

    Offer still stands mate, (I only have case holders for SAUM and TCU though)

    Maybe call Reloaders or the like and ask if they can add a set for the 300SAUM when they place their next order?
