    WTB - Case Trimmer

    I'm looking to buy a Case Trimmer (Mini lathe type) like the Hornady Cam-Lock or similar.

    Have found the Hornady one new for $147 in NZ, but just thought i would try here first to see if someone had one surplus to requirements.

    Cheers, GWH

    Are they that bad? What do you recommend? The Wilson one (with the bush that the case fits into) seems to get great reviews....

    I had the Hornady one and it ruined my life. My personal feeling about Hornady is they make great projectiles but everything else they make is fucking rubbish!!!

    I have the Wilson one, its nice to use and seems to be pretty accurate.

    I will have a look when I get home but I may have a forster one lying about unused. You can have it for postage if I can find it.

    Hey R93, did you still have that trimmer? I'm just keen to turn some cases, and need to trim to same length first ;-)
