    Ran across this after missing a good deal in the classifieds section on a WFT 223. Roughly $25 to quickly trim range pickup for some AR plinking. Anyone tried one? I'm gonna order one and try it any way at that price. http://www.newhighpower.com/brass-trimmers.html

    I own the 308 and the 223. Great trimmers. Once you get them set, you can trim hundreds of cases in an hour. Use a hand trimmed case to set it up.

    I use one. after sizing, I set up with the WFT on a drill, twin daughters on drills with inside and outside chamfer tools. Boxes in front of us. We trim, chamfer and sort 100's in an hour.

    I absolutely hate trimming on lathe type trimmers. I picked up a WFT a couple years ago and now it's almost fun. Get one and never look back.

    I have a WFT for every caliber I shoot. Like they say in the TV commercials, set it and forget it. :D

    Looks like the WFT rides in a bearing where as the other is plastic spinning on your brass

    My 7 year old son sized about 100 223 cases for me.
    He had his bicycle helmet on.

    And if you have a lathe, a mill and your chamber reamer you can make your own BUT for twenty bucks it hardly is worth the time and tooling.
