    The cheapest industrial brass trimmer

    I needed to trim some .30-06 brass down for my 8x60 S, and without a proper adjustable trimmer to shave 3mm off each case, I rigged up what I had in the shed.
    Surprisingly, it worked, and I got evenly trimmed cases at 59.9mm.

    Yes I have a computer on the workbench.. how else to you procrastinate without a way to be distracted by Forgotten Weapons, C&Rsenal and Mark Felton videos?

    yip that works and is arguably less bubbafied than calipers to check and angle grinder to reduce...... that works too LOL.... will need jolly good champhering afterwards,suggest you do inside n outside before anything else,just enough to take off any burrs.
    75/15/10 black powder matters

    Yep, they had good 'ol deburring after the trim.

    Finished loading up a first batch of 10, will go off to the range tomorrow, weather permitting and see what the result is...
