Grind down

Post by rvenneman » March 14th, 2017, 10:20 pm

Can anyone suggest a case grinder to get the 9x19 down to 9x18 ?

Why would you grind a case? Why not trim it? There are plenty of case trimmers out there. From the inexpensive around $30 on up to a couple hundred. Any and all would do a better job than trying to grind them.

I am just about to do some 9x19 for the first time... I already have a Lyman universal trimmer and found that doing it by hand was a real pain in more than one way... and I found that Cabela's had the Lyman adapter for attaching the trimmer to a electric drill marked down to $20 so I ordered it this morning...I'm old, have patience, but not enougb time or patience to just crank by hand to do many rounds...nor do I want the blisters.... If you don't have any trimmer now, you may want to check out some of the stuff Lee offers... I believe they are caliber specific and you can get them with a hand crank or an adapter to attach to a drill also... both ways are much cheaper than buying a power trimmer outright...

Got my adapter for my Lyman trimmer Sat and did 100+ today in no time with electric variable speed drill. Did not force, checked length often and it was dead on. Sure beats hand crank.
