If the brass is not long enough to trim does that mean that the Giraud also does not chamfer or deburr the brass?

Thank you,

Yes, it will give it a chamfer and deburr even if it doesn't have to trim much or anything. When I run virgin brass through, it very rarely trims anything but it does give it a nice chamfer.

Doug packs a case with the unit to show how it's adjusted. I tweaked mine ever so slightly when I first got it and never adjusted it since. I've trimmed close to 10,000 cases with it, it's really easy to use.

Even now, since I trim at every loading, there is very little that gets removed but I always get a nice chamfer.

Spoke with Doug today. He seemed like a good guy to do business with and now I know for sure how to pronounce Giraud.

Thanks for the info NikonUser. It would be nice to remove the Trim Mate from the bench but I suppose it will still have some uses.

Doug is a character. I didn't realize there was an issue with pronouncing his name. :-)

I sold my Trim Mate to a fellow shooter last years. It served me well for several years but it had been languishing on a shelf after I bought the Giraud trimmer.

Next to go will be the Chargemaster, but not right away.
