Default Chamfer / Deburr Tool for .223 / .308

I am looking for some bits only that can be attached to a power drill, drill press, or dremel.

Asside from this set, does anyone have any recommendations?

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/394...rring-tool-set

I already have a drill mounted chamfer tool, does anyone know where or who makes a decent bit for deburring?

How about replacing the cutter itself with a Forster 3 in 1 head?

Itís an option but I am using the CTS trimmer which indexes off the case shoulder and runs off a hand drill.

I have plenty of rotary tools I can use for the debur tool.

If ya use boat tail bullets, you need not chamfer.. at least that's what I've learned in regards to 223/308..

What's wrong with the Lyman set you linked to? I am a week or two behind your learning curve and am now starting to look for the exact same thing!! Was about to order the Lyman set.

I really wanted to get away with just trimming for my .223 and .308

The CTS trimmer is sharp, and leaves a clean cut.

But even when seating bolt tail bullets, I can get a handful out of a batch that has some damage to the jacket, more than I would like to see.

I started adding just a little chamfer with a counter sink bit from home depot and itís a world of difference in seating and maintains the integrity of the jacket. I donít want to do it, but it helps. Even tho I reload on a progressive, I still want to maintain some level of accuracy and consistency in the ammo I make. So chamfer has become a part of my case prep.

I don’t have a problem with the set… I just don’t want to pay for the entire set. I only want the outside deburring tool.

It’s amazing I am having a hard time finding what I need without spending an arm and a leg. All these little things are starting to add up.

Power drill mounted deburring tool.

I see these things everywhere, but I would love to see one with a way to adapt it to a rotary tool.



I would have broken down an got the RCBS or Lyman case prep center but im trying to make use of tools I already own…

My issue is not with the primer pockets, its deburring the outside neck of the cases.

I actually donít clean my primer pockets. I just deprime, swage, and tumble. Itís clean enough for what I am doingÖ plus I havenít had any issues with seating primers.

I skip this step primarily because its time consuming and I prep 250-500 cases per session.

You might want to look at this. The chamfer/deburring tool fits inside easily. Just do not overtighten the set screw. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/295...78BrandPopProd

I use this:



With the chamferring and deburring heads attached:



And take the tip off this as well and attach to the power station:



From the trimmer to the deburring station for a few seconds of chamferring, deburring and truing of the primer pockets. The first two take a couple seconds total, maybe 10 for the primer pocket but just once!

The Possum Hollow linked above works great, but it does not work with all chamfer/deburr tools. I know Hornady won't fit, I know Forster will, the list is on the Possum Hollow website. Scroll down in this thread to see a video of one in action.

Get 2 of these:
http://www.midwayusa.com/product/295...-power-adapter

Then 2 of these:
http://www.midwayusa.com/product/789...-to-45-caliber

Chuck them up in your drill/rotary press and you're done.

That's what I do and it's the fastest, cheapest, and easiest method.

Do the "Lee sets" work better with the large flat surfaces preventing over-deburring/chamferring?

I have been using the Cabella's, and RCBS manual ones.

Hmm.. I usually decap, size/trim with the Dillon trimmer on my 650.. then I tumble them in corn cob media with a little Isopropyl alcohol to remove the lube, that usually also removes any burrs.. then I prime em, drop powder, and seat the bullet in the 650 again.. Have not noticed any bullet damage..

If you run a lot of .223 consider getting one of these. They're not cheap, but they trim to length, and chamfer both the inside as well as the outside of the case mouth in one shot. I've trimmed 2,500 .223 cases in under 2 hours, start to finish. Little Crow Gun Works makes a similar head you can run on a standard cordless drill.
