    Trimming .458 Socom brass question.

    I ordered a set of Lee .458 dies W/ crimp die. I assumed that Lee made a e-z trimmer for .458 Socom. They say it is not available and can not be made on their website.Any idea on how to trim the brass easily. PS. Why would Lee make the dies and not an e-z trim for it!!!!!

    I would search for a case trimmer of the same diameter and similar length and adjust it for the case You want to trim, it might work.

    Thanks for all the good info. Now question is what is easiest to use. The Lyman or the RCBS trim pro? Going to use it with a small hand drill.

    Most precise is the hand powered. Although your precision is mostly in your set up and procedure. Powered means I just get in trouble quicker.
