Lee Case Trimmers
Today i want to talk a little bit about the lyman universal lathe style trimmer. Collar lace style because it kind of works like a lathe but it's a lyman universal trimmers what it is its a 4k. Streaming a lot of you already know that you get a lot of these different size. Collet depending on what caliber this is. For nine millimeter what caliber brass. That you're trimming that keeps the. Mouth concentric of you know round. Perfect fort of when you get this. Trimmer you get this ram that goes in one. The end of the ram as a cutter head and. These pilots they go into the cutter. Head there's a set screw that you loosen. Up right there and that goes on in that. Enters the mouth this particular one. That comes with it's got a knurled handle and you know it's great for doing. Small batches however you can do your. Finger raw spinning out a large amount. What i purchased and it's been in for a. While today's the first day i got to play with it as the new attachment that lamin. Offers it allows you to run off of the. Drill. This right here lets you set your depth. Basically what you do is if you have a piece of brass that's already trimmed to what you want you chuck it up in this. Holder it's got a detent a ball detent. That goes into the flesh of sorry to the. Primer pocket and it keeps it centered. Then it locks it down then you would. Move this until it touches the mouth set. Under the set screws slide these forward. Tighten it up and that sets it so that. You get the proper length what I'm doing. With it today is I'm processing my 40. Brass for my 44 magnum swage bullets the. Problem i have i leave the primers in so i got to mess. Around and make sure it's perfectly getting straight before i start trimming but let me chuck a few of these up and just show you how fast that i can trim. These to size whereas i was using my. Hand I've got all of these that I'm. Going to process taught it by hand with. That handle was just eating my fingers. Raw and today I'm gonna reach through. The camera here this is how many i. Processed so far with this drill in a. Matter of 28 minutes but I've also been. Taking my time of readjusting everything. So let me figure out a good way to put. This camera and then we'll run through a. Few and I'll let you see how quickly and. Short work it makes a trimming brass. We'll try from this angle so since this. Still has the primer in it i flied in. Until i hear a click i press my thumb and try to keep it as. Straight as possible then I'll just push. The ram against the mouth and close it. And that keeps it pretty good so now all. You need to do is have on safety glasses. Like I've got then just now you as well. Notice there's a little bit of wobble that's okay. That's all there is to it you see the. Shiny ring around the mouth okay it's. About the best of the close-up as i could get let's go ahead and try this out. Okay i showed you trim in the 40s to. Length to make my 44 magnum here I'm. Going to trim a 40 to make my 45 I've. Got it tucked up into the case holder. And here we go you'll see how many materials taken away. To form a 45. And I'll do one more here. Let me just be. And i do have a guard that keeps all the. Shavings they fly back towards the camera it looks like, but they're really going into a pow in front of me, so they're not one all over the room so you. Can see it makes real quick work of it.
Hornady® One Shot™ Case Lube with Dyna Glide Plus®
Available: 5 oz., 10 oz.
Okay i thought while i was at it i would. Also do a quick review of the hornady one-shot a case loop just to give some. Impressions on half of it i had for a very long time I've been using the. Imperial sizing die way for all of my. Resizing that is this stuff right here. It's by reading imperial sizing die wax. This stuff is actually really good it. Works really quite well but it has some advantages and disadvantages but really. What i found is that for really heavy-duty sizing like if you're resizing cases necking up necking down. In the past i have made some 257. Weatherby brass out of seven millimeters. Remington magnum brass and when you're doing that type of operation the. Imperial sizing iox really works well because this stuff it lubricates. Extremely well it covers extremely well but there are some disadvantages to it. First of all it's a way that comes in. This little tin and basically you've got to smear it on every single case making sure you get you've got good even coverage but making also making. Sure that you don't have too much. Because if there's too much on there you're going to wind up getting a lot of dimpled shoulders on your cases from if. You fold three size so because you. Now it just creates there's enough wax. In there and as it squeezes into the dye the wax accumulates at the shoulder and. Because it can't be compressed it. Pushes in hydraulically dimpling the. Shoulders of the case it also sucks. If you're doing a lot of full length. Resizing I've recently got and i recently finished assembling my ar-15 i. Also recently purchased a. Browning var mark 2 25.6 it's a safari. I'll show those to you they're actually really cool. Beautiful rifle here's my ar-15 that i. Assembled from nothing but a stripped lower receiver it's a rock rubber arms lower receiver finished assembling that myself so anyway as a result I've gone. From hand building for mostly. Bolt-action rifles where i do mostly. Just neck sizing to the semi-automatic. Switch really miss require that a person. Folding three size every single time i found i haven't had to use a small like. Small base folding sizing die regular. Sizing guy works fine but because. Especially with the ar-15 I'm going through a lot more ammo with that rifle and so i am reloading in large batches. And applying sizing die lubricant like. The imperial die one case at a time it. Takes a long time the hornady one shot i read about this. Are you decided to give it a try this. Stuff is actually really good it works really well but you've got to do it a certain way. What i do is I've got a rag here that i. Made out of an old towel that had been gotten kind of ratty the wife was not. Very happy when i cut it up but when i reminded her that it had a hole in it you could put your fist through she was. You know less upset but anyway i made. This little towel i can lay the brass out on the towel side by side with. The necks you know facing towards me and then you can just take the sizing die. And you can just spray it rights across i. Don't have any brass that's to go right now but you can spray it rights across and then you just roll the brass about 180 degrees spray it again. And then you want to wait until it sets. Up now the directions tell you basically. You know shake well before using it's that kind of little ball of their like pam spray paint you want to shake it up really well because you want to get the waxes dispersed in the solvent that's. Inside there and you spray a light coat. On roll the cases over spray another. Light coat but then the biggest thing i. Found is you want to spray some like. About a 45 degree angle the directions say that you want to spray at an angle like this you don't want to spray down on other cases because if you do that it doesn't really disperse the. Lubricant very well plus when you're folding three sizing unless you're using like a reading dye with a carbide button for neck sizing you want to get a. Little bit of lubricant inside the face neck that makes you know the. Resizing process on the case neck much smoother and by spraying at about a. 45 degree angle and assuring you good coverage i usually go like once and then go back i go like once across the body of the cases and then once again across the shoulders and necks to you good. Coverage then the key is you want to let. It sits okay this stuff is like a wax really in a solvent suspension and if. You spray this on and then just go ahead. And start trying the size well it's. Still wet well that solvent is still as. It hasn't evaporated yet it doesn't. Really lubricate very well and you'll be. Frustrated and i made that mistake i didn't wait long enough i get in hurry. Sometimes and i was initially frustrated. Because i was having a hard time with. The cases that well this stuff really doesn't work but then as i went along of course by the time i started getting into the later cases you know it's going along. They've had a chance to set up the. Solvent had evaporated and that leaves basically a very thin layer of wax. On the case and that provides the. Lubrication once it has a chance to set. Up it actually is a very good lubricant. It's basically every bit as good as the. Imperial sizing guy for light to medium. Duty operations again i wouldn't use it. For really heavy-duty like case resizing. For you know forming cases like nicking. Down or you know converting a case like. A like a seven millimeter rem mag into a 257 whether you mag i wouldn't use it for that but for normal full-length resizing the stuff is fantastic just make sure you give it a chance to it takes about depending on the. Ambient temperature i like to give it. Three to five minutes to set up or you. Now just blow on it a little bit if you've got an air compressor most america it or whatever um the other. Think that says here on the back of the. Label that i noticed is it says it. Doesn't contaminate won't contaminate. Powder primers sorry that's my lab she's. In need of attention lucy go lay down. Anyway says a won't contaminate powder. Primers evenly distribute lubricant over. The entire case won't creeper migrate that's actually really true as far as contaminating powder our primers i haven't any problems with it but i generally tumble my brass after i use. This stuff because i don't like it i don't like i don't like reloading greasy. Brass because it does feel greasy it. Says eliminates the greasy mess usually associated with resizing cases but that's not exactly true i mean it's not as greasy as some of the other lubricants but it is still kind of greasy it does definitely make a sizing. Easier but it also says it prevents. Tarnish reduces drag on the case extraction and helps prevent scouring. Scratching damage and minimizes jamming problems in semi-automatic firearms now. That says to me apparently that they intend for this stuff to remain on. The cases after you've resized them and. Loaded them that they don't really think. That you need to clean it off that is probably a personal preference however i tried that myself and what i. Discovered was it if you shoot these and. If you shoot loaded cartridges that. Still, have the stuff on the cartridge case through a semi-automatic firearm it. Is very dirty what happens is that. Lubricant kind of scorches and burns a. Little bit it creates kind of like I'm a. Channel where rather than the having the. Case expand firmly against the inside of. The chamber and seal the chamber up really well it allows more blow back to. Get by along the sides of the case and. The cases basically come out really. Dirty and them in the wax itself kind of. Blackens and the case has come out filthy does it improve function i don't. No i keep my rifles really clean so i. Haven't noticed any difference my. Browning is you know fairly new in it. And i keep it very cleans so it's it functions just fine by ar-15 has a nova ski with the five. Five six mod one chamber which is like a 223 wild. Combat chamber so it's designed. To be fairly accurate but still. Extremely reliable so i haven't had any problems at all as far as function goes everything's. Been 100% reliable so i don't know if it. Is really benefiting anything that much. What it does do is it makes your brass. Absolutely filthy it's got like this layer of blackened scum that's about. Twice as bad as it would be if you. Don't have that layer on there so what. I've decided to do from now on is i go. Ahead after I'm done resizing i throw the. Cases back in the tumbler and tumble. Then to clean off all of that way so. That they're basically just clean polished brass and that works just fine. And it's a lot less messy this stuff. Also works really good too for the five six brass that. When you have to swage primer pockets i. Use a rcbs primer pockets wager died in. My press over here and this allowed this. You can lubricate the primer pockets which makes the process a lot easier. Without putting too much lubrication on. There you don't create like hydraulic. Problems but it definitely makes primer. Packets waging of military five six. Brass quite a bit easier so i really. Highly recommend this stuff it actually works really well i was a little skeptical but i picked it up because it was on sale i read a couple of good. Reviews about it online but i found you. Now that in my experience it actually has been a really good. Sizing daily so i would suggest if. You're looking for something that you can lubricate a lot of brass in. In bulk in batches this stuff is good. To go so alright that's it thanks mike.
Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Power Case Prep Center
The workaday lock and load power case. Preparation center and i bought this. Think a few years ago and you know if. You use workaday tools they're a good. Quality name but if you use them all exclusively like their shell holders and. Then this might work out for you this thing's it's not cheap i forget what i. Paid for it but when i found out is the way it holds the cases in here will zoom. In this is the thing that you put in. There you put the case in a holder there's your power trimmer how works is. Inside this goes this part here which. Has like a shaft and a rubber washer in. Your case holder goes in there and then. What happens is when you turn this thing. Here it puts pressure on that piece and. Pushes the center out through the hole. And then that's what holds the case this. Ride puts pressure on the back of the. Case and uses the shell holder well if you notice there's a gap in this one here because this is a horn of a shell holder i didn't now and then see you. Just slide the whole thing up in here together that holds the case i didn't. Now that that quantity shall holders are different than standard ones i thought they were all the same they're not the workaday holders have a larger. Hole in the center where if you try to. Stick a lead lineman or our cbs show. Holder in this it won't work so i got. Pissed went and turned that spot down. Then see you going to shell older and. You turn that till you get pressure not. To hold this push down on the handle to your trim so. I turn it kind of works good it kind of doesn't work good power trimmers are. Expensive i got this because i thought I'd be you know trimming a lot of brass. Which sometimes i do we're doing 6.5. Carpet here's what i got done and it. Doesn't work too bad how do you adjust it and everything i always had trouble with i read the instructions i figured. Out i had to fool with it for a while and i got it and then basically just turn it out in the back a little base. Spins around pressure. Face cream some of these been fired more. Then once, they're a bit longer but it. Helps it helps me kind of get to you as quickly but i didn't like the idea you'd. Have to buy all horrid a shell holder i. Reload a lot of cases i have a lot of. Shall overs different brands like i said. Most of us probably got a lot of wheaties, and then they won't work unless you modify that part then it doesn't. Really work that good the only good. Think i like about this is why this is. Rubbing you have down in here you have. These little tools are constantly down. And you got spots we can add more you. Can clean out your primer pocket like. That and you're going deeper a chamfer. On the inside with that tool these. Little chamber on outside the bathroom and your case prep ready to go you know. Like to get it running right if you. Don't mind buying all workaday shell holders it does save time but really depending. On the volume you're trimming your better off with a ally quick trim its. Cost you less money and it works pretty. Good you know it's compared to this but I'm. Going to go and get the rest of these 6.5 carcano is done, and we're going to. Do some more videos on the carcano and shooting the 6.5.

RCBS® Trim Pro-2 Manual Case Trimmer Kit
This is the rcbs trim pro manual case. Trimmer kit the reason i chose this case. Trimmer over other case trimmers is i like the way that it clamps it has a. Spring-loaded clamp right here that you press down and it opens into the. Clamping device and then release in a. Clamps or bullet if you open it up you can change out these little case holders. And it comes with a set of those it also comes with a set of pilots what you. Would do is you would put the collet in it for your proper case and you would. Take a pilot from one of these down here and put it in here with a set screw for the size of the. Case that you're going to use and then. Here you have two set screws one is. Slides back and forth for a rough adjustment and then the second one is on. A thread so you can fine-tune your adjustment in and out and that's how you. Do the adjustments to it other than that. To load it you soap it up drop the show in release the clamp trim your case. Take it out drops in another case. Trim your case and drop in another one. As you can see it's fairly quick you can. Work through something fairly quickly. One complaint that i do have is that it. Doesn't come with the allen wrench and it doesn't come with a place to put the allen wrench on the trimmer itself one. Feature i do like is here on the end there's an allen wrench our allen screw on the end it holds the handle on you can take the handle off you can chuck a 1/2 inch drill on the end and you can use that instead of manually turning it. And you can go through them quite faster. If you have a large batch and that is. The rcbs trim pro manual case trimmer. Kit.
