I'm in need of my first case trimmer. Not a high volume shooter. I'm torn between the Lyman universal and the rcbs pro trim 2. Id like to be able to connect it to a power drill for ease of use and a little speed. Looking at them I can make that happen. I'm looking for pros and cons of each or is there something else I should be looking at. Thanks

True to my frugal nature, and because I'm a low-volume reloader, I get by with the Lee hand case trimmer with the wooden ball to ease hand fatigue. I also use the the Lee hand deburring tool.
However, something a little nicer may be on my Xmas wish list...

Will be watching this thread to see what all everyone likes to use. 👍

Can’t speak for either. I also use a hand trimmer. Forster, once set up it’s very precise & I cant see much time saved using a drill.

I have this one and I really like it. It does every caliber I own with consistency. But I am not expert reloader. Just a value/hobby reloader.

I use the RCBS Pro Trim 2. I do not have anything to say negative about it. Does what it’s purposed to do. Does not take that much time to trim cases, it’s just part of the process. All of it is a relaxing hobby. I only reload four different calibers and I find that the cases are uniform as an end result. Good luck.
