RCBS trim mate case prep center

JKPJKP Senior MemberPosts: 2,270 Senior Member
Anyone have experience with the RCBS trim mate case prep center or similar? I usually do case prep (by hand) while watching TV but it's getting old.

Thanks for any lessons learned. My only concern with using the machine is the loss of being able to "feel" the deburring process, similar to why I like a hand primer instead of using a press.

    I have one and use it every time I trim brass, as well as to remove military crimps from 5.56 brass. I tend to trim my brass in large batches. Over 500 pieces at a time. It saves a lot of time for me for that. I have mine set up with an inside deburring tool, outside deburring tool, military crimp removing tool and large and small primer pocket cleaners.

    I have one & like it, but I use it only for the length function. I still deburr by hand.
