I have had enough turning the knob on a hand case trimmer. Does anyone have an opinion on the power trimmers in general, or which one is a good one? I have never used one.
Thanks

I just use a cordless drill on my Hornady trimmer.  I can trim a case in seconds it works great.

I ran one on my RCBS case trimmer. Worked well.

 Absolute premier, super-duper, top-of-the-line, standard of the industry, etc.

  (Just to inform you so you know that it exists!)

 
  Too pricey for me, though....

Oh yea I saw the giraurd too, wow! I use a Dillon rapid trim for the bulk stuff (223, 308, etc.). Everything else still gets hand cranked on a Lyman, could use a carbide cutter though.

Here is another fancy one that would take one step out of your prep process.

One of the few that use a Lee Zip Trim
 
 
trim, chamfer, clean and steel wool the inside of the neck.  Easy on the hands and very cheap.

X 3 on the cordless. I bought the cordless drill attachment for the RCBS and threw the crank handle away. Even with a new cutter, it always seemed to just want to flatten the brass out instead of trimming it when turning and pushing by hand.

I have the lyman electric trimmer and am very happy with it, it has an attachment for a primer pocket cleaner to that is quite useful. I researched several before I took the jump and this one is awesome.
