I haven't, but one of the moderators on TFL has one and has good things to say about it.

Apparently FA upped their QC on parts and assembly for this one over their normal fare. Supposed to be a pretty solid little unit.

Cabelas has the Lyman case prep on sale for $99 or there abouts. I order that and some brass polish for a little over $100 and then used a $20 discount with free shipping.

I've seen only one review of the FA device posted by someone I am acquainted with, but he thinks it's a great tool. I'd probably go that route if I wasn't already equipped.

I use the Lee case trimmer w the drill connector. >$20 for one rifle caliber. Then about $10 for each additional cal. For quick cleaning touch w a piece of green scotch brite while stil on the drill.

I don't trim pistol cases just throw them in scrap metal if too long.

Yeah I got one of those too. It is cheap and it works, but I hate doing a bunch... or even a little brass with it.

Looks pretty cool. Let us know how it goes when you get it.

So it will trim cases too? What extra attachments do you need to trim with it?

Looks like it's about the same as the RCBS case prep center. I use the RCBS and it rocks.

Been using it for a week now and it saves me a load of time. No more hand trimming ! Easy to setup
