Im looking at getting a case prep station. Anybody on here have one? Im looking to speed things up a little instead of doing it all by hand. Ive been eyeballing the RCBS Trim mate and the Lyman Prep Xpress. Ive been doing it for years by hand..but Im about wore out! ;\) Which ones do yall prefer? Ive always used commercial .223 brass, but I had a buddy of mine drop off about 2500 Lake City 5.56 cases free of charge! These should do me a while. LOL Now Im in the process of removing these primer crimps. Ive got the Hornady hand tool.....and Im hoping one of these prep stations will chuck up the bit so NO MORE HAND TURNING.

If someone gave me 2500 LC brass I would buy a Dillon Super Swage.

Love my RCBS trim mate, best money I ever spent. I bought the Hornady Mil. crimp remover, and it threads to the trim mate. Have removed crimps on approx 2000 5.56 LC cases and still going strong!

I don't think that it is worth the trouble. If you send it my way I will dispose of it for you! \:\)

Going about it all wrong. Here is my Case Prep work stations.
