Sigarmsp226 Posted August 17, 2022 Share Posted August 17, 2022 (edited) Have a RL1100 that I want to set up a dedicated toolhead to trim mostly 223/5.56, but also some 300 B/O, or 308 brass. I have never trimmed brass on my progressive machine. I have always used a Giraud Tri-Way trimmer but this process has become more painful to my fingers as I get older. Wanted to ask if experienced progressive press brass trimming experts could share with me what trimmer system I should get please. From the make and model of trimming machine to the make and model of the trimmer blade unit to the toolhead, collet system, and trimming die. If I have to cry once - then so be it - but I want a reliable system that will provide me with reliable trimming for a long time. I ask this because I have read several past posts on this forum that recommend staying away from the Dillon system. Most of my 223/5.56 brass is range pick up that I reload and shoot in various plinking AR’s. I usually make my own 300 B/O with a resizing die and a cut off saw with a jig using once fired LC 5.56 brass. As for 308 I have a mixture of range pick up (military and commercial) that I shoot in my M1A rifles. Thanks in advance for your feedback and recommendations.
