The most important aspect of this signature line is that you don't realize it doesn't say anything significant until you are just about done reading it & then it is too late to stop reading it....

I just use 577-450 - just found out that CBC brass will comfortably hold about 135grs of Swiss no.5 without any compression, so who needs a 45-120? :shock:

My Wilson trimmer looks like it would barely handle .45/120...but they make one long enough for .50 BMG
Their 45/70 shell holders will take any of the .45 BP straight cases.

Long trimming

Laurie,

You've got great local machine shops....save a buck, get them to order up a piloted counterbore cutter (HSS is cool, you don't need carbide), ....fit it to an existing ( you've probably got the thing) set of guts...with a "stretched" base.

That thing at U.S.$ 200, will be pretty $$$$$$ down under, methinks.

All else fails, I'll build and send you a complete unit, or the plans, or the guts, or whatever.......

Happens that I'm helping a guy from Tombstone wake up a Peddersoli in that infamous chambering.

He got Norma brass, from Gullo (BuffArms).....awesome stuff, but costin'
more than good whiskey.

Big old cartridge, that.
