Default case trimmer and 50 AE die question

hey whats up guys, so for christmas i got a lee case length gage (for the beowulf) and shellholder along with the case trimmer and lock stud also from lee. is there a manual stationary case trimmer i can attach this setup to?

also is there a good set of dies out there for reloading .50 AE rounds? any brand of dies to stay away from?

I would imagine it does after shooting it several times? Won't the brass stretch out a little?

I have a lee case gage trimmer that I got from midway. It has a 1/4 inch bit on the end to put into a drill but I'd like to use it in a stationary trimmer machine whether its electric or not.

oh then you need to use the case holder in this http://www.midwayusa.com/product/515..._vc=OBv1174316
The Lee 50AE dies are as good as any other
