Wilson case trimmers are unique in that the case is held by a case holder which simulates a rifle chamber. Cases are held in case holders by their own body taper. The case holders sit in a rail system that also holds the cutter housing insuring square and perfect alignment every time. Trimmers can be held in a vise or are compatible with mounting stands. Trimmers can also be used for inside neck reaming, military crimp removal, and case mouth deburring by adding additional cutters. Specify .17-.20 caliber or .22-.45 caliber Case Trimmer on order.
Mykal Banta of Delray Beach, FL Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 12/4/2003 Review:I bought this product after trying, and being very frustrated with, several different case trimmers, and this is my favorite by far. Lets face it, trimming cases is a real pain. The thing that is great about the Wilson case trimmer is that it is very, very consistent. I trimmed about 100 .357 mag cases the other night, and I got them all at 1.280 except for a very small number that varied by less that .001. I mounted the trimmer in my bench vise, using pads so as not to damage the trimmer, and it was just rock solid. Wilson uses case holders that are easy to use, which was a relief after wrenching cases in and out of the RCBS case trimmer, and the handle turned easily and was ergonomically a treat, too. Very, very good product, and one I will stick with.
Pete Syverson of Albuquerque, NM Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 2/28/2004 Review:I have owner and used the Wilson Trimmer for about 35 years and have been delighted with it. It is very precise, very consistent, and once adjusted, doesn’t loose it’s setting, period. Well made, and a great design. Heartily recommended.
Robert Shirk of Clear Spring, MD Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 3/9/2004 Review:This tool is built like a tank. It is simple to set up and use and trims cases perfectly with little effort. Works best clamped in a vise, but I use it sitting in my chair when I don’t have too many cases to do at a time. If you want a hand operated trimmer, buy this one.
A Yee of Phoenix, AZ Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 11/8/2004 Review:I’ve used case trimmers from RCBS, Redding, Forster and Lyman. The Wilson case trimmer seems to be much more precise. There is very little variation in the trimmed case lengths unlike the other case trimmers that I’ve played around with.
George Ferguson of Saginaw, MI Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 12/8/2004 Review:At last a case trimmer which is consistant when trimming cases. I have tried most of the case trimmers (much to my frustration) on the market and all of them have ended being sold on ebay. If you want an inexpensive case trimmer that consistantly trims your cases to the exact length you want them then this is the one. It can be a little confusing at first what with all the different gauges, but after about 10 minutes it all comes together.I am really delighted with this product.
Richard Prestwich of Seattle, Wa Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 8/18/2005 Review:My father and I started reloading when in 1962. We started with a Wlison Case Trimmer. Dad sold it. We never did find anything else that worked as well, as fast, as easily, as accurately. And we tried them all. Don’t tempt me to buy all you have in stock!
Brian Basiaga of Omaha, NE Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 5/15/2006 Review:This is my first case trimmer, so I really can’t compare to anything else, but overall I’m very happy with this product. As with most reloading gear, I figured I’d have to mess with this thing for an hour or so to get it set up just right. To my surprise, opened the package, clamped it in my vice and had the length set where I wanted it in about 10 minutes. I proceeded to process 50 resized new Winchester cases in almost no time at all. The cuts were accurate and square, leaving few if any burrs at all. I do still recommend the chamfer and deburring tool though, as some bits to like to hang on. Measuring about 10 of the 50 cases, the lengths were all within a half of a thousandth, which was much better than they were from the factory (deviation out of the package was about 3 thousandths). I’ll have to wait and see how well it holds up over time, but as of right now I can’t think of anything else I’d ask for. Great value at the asking price too.
Jason of MO Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 10/3/2014 Review: This is a great product, which produces perfect results every time. The case holder mimics the rifle chamber, holding the case straight and firmly in place. This allows for neat, concentric cuts every time. Most of the other trimmers that use collets allow the case mouth to move while being trimmed, resulting in uneven cuts. I did not purchase the base as I do not believe it necessary. The unit can either be fixed to a wood base or held in place in a vise. Some complain about the need for different shell holders for different calibers, but that is the whole point of this unit and what makes it so effective. The holders are inexpensive and easily available, so what is the problem?
Jackabob2001 of West Baton Rouge, LA Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 5/6/2013 Review: I have been using this trimmer for 270wsm and 325wsm and so far it has been great. Very consistent and easy to use. I would recommend buying the stand that goes with it, I started using it without the stand and realized its much better with. Overall this trimmer is outstanding.
