Trim Doctor w / Exacta-Trim Bushing 12G
Two tools in one:
Shotshell case length trimmer that produces exacting cuts and ideal short cases
Case disassembly tool
After years of searching the world for just the right case trimmer without success, our ballistic technicians demanded that BPI make this convenient and necessary tool. A threaded adjustment gauge in the Trim Doctor holds shells in alignment to produce a clean and crimpable edge. The Trim Doctor is designed to remove 1/4" at a time (about the same as full fold crimp): 3" shells become 2-3/4", 2-3/4" become 2-1/2". Two full cuts on a 10 gauge shell produce a 2-7/8" shell. Select the gauge of your new Trim Doctor; it comes with one gauge adaptor bushing.
Our new ExactaTrim adaptor bushings assure tight cuts with no spiraling and they are available in additional sizes to make your Trim Doctor even more versatility.
As a shell disassembly tool, the Trim Doctor works on any gauge, 10ga through .410. Just remove the threaded guide, insert loaded shell into opening and gently turn the shell while applying slight pressure to the blade guide. The top of shell will pop off cleanly after a few turns.
The Trim Doctor will pay for itself many times over by allowing you to retrieve components from reject shells and by allowing further firings out of many hulls with tired crimps.
NOTE: Does not include different bushings. Must purchase separately.
Shotshell Roll Crimper
As you assemble high performance shotshells you will find that crimp depths can vary, even to a point where it is difficult to make a proper fold crimp. A compromised crimp will compromise the combustion process, reducing performance significantly. High Performance loads vary shell to shell because components such as slugs, buckshot and rigid hunting wads, by their nature, are not flexible platforms. Roll crimps adjust to the load, (instead of the load adjusting to the crimp) and the results are more consistent & sustained combustion and improved performance, critical for long-range accuracy. Roll crimpers can be used with a hand drill or drill press.
