    Had sorted all my .223 that needed to be trimmed separately and loaded most of what didn't need trimmed.

    now i want to start trimming the cases that need it while i wait on more bullets to come in.

    any recommendations on a decent trimmer that does not take all day to trim cases

    Thanks

    Yup, the Lee trimmer is cheap and effective if you've only got a couple of calibers that you're trimming for. Heck, I've got studs for every caliber I own except for .204 and a couple other oddballs (Lee don't make anything smaller than .22 for this system).
    I'll pass on the high-priced one too...especially at $70 per caliber. That would cost me way over $2000 to get setup in trimmers.


    And you can make your own wood handle for the cutter too in case you've already got the plain one.
    Just drill a chunk of your favorite wood (or just a scrap :D) and either press-fit or epoxy the cutter into the hole.
