    Excellent tool!!! Highly recommend

  13. Scott Wilson (Verified Buyer)

    After using the tool for a week I am so glad I bought this. My reloads look so much better. One benefit I also found is that it opens up the opening of the hull more and the wads go in a lot easier.

    Hello from Germany to all shooters and reloaders. I am very happy with this tool. All my reloads (Shot an Lymanslugs in wads) Look so much better, because of the casetrimming. All the hulls have the length, and If the machin is adjusted the shells came all out with a perfekt starcrimp. Sorry Form my english. Greetings Martin

  42. Larry K. (Verified Buyer)

    once you get it set to the gauge you are working on this thing works great. not sure how long the knife will stay sharp , but so far so good.
    i’m happy with it.

  43. Tim Holtz (Verified Buyer)

    What a great tool. I went from having very inconsistent crimps to all uniform and perfect. Thank you for superb craftsmanship and outstanding customer service.

  44. Michael K. (Verified Buyer)

    I have a 12 and 16 gauge, works as advertised, is very useful on my older 16 gauge hulls where the mouth gets crispy and trimming makes them good for a few more reloads!

  45. Ernest T. (Verified Buyer)

    Crimps are now perfectly uniform.
    A quality feel to the product with adjustability to suit your needs.

  46. Larry (Verified Buyer)

    I never realized how much the hulls stretched. Now my crimps look great!

  47. steve b. (Verified Buyer)

    Great service

  48. Dave Howard (Verified Buyer)

    Purchased the 12 ga. hull trimmer about a year ago. Figure I’ve trimmed about 1000+ hulls and truly eliminated any issues with bad folds. Prior to this I had purchased several other brand name trimmers and even did a “homemade” rig when I became dissatisfied with them ….. all junk (yes, especially mine) in comparison to the CRS trimmer.
    Ease of use, adjustment and the comfortable fit in the hand have made this the perfect tool towards better loads for me. A “Must Have” for any serious shotshell loader.
    I also added the CRS 16 & 20 ga. trimmers to my reloading tools just this last month.
    Can’t say enough about the quality of the trimmers. Did see a review questioning the price. All I can say is these trimmers are quality tools that will easily be handed down over the years to other family reloaders. As I stated above, I purchased other trimmers and this is the only one made to last.
    Hope this review is helpful.

  49. Edgar (Verified Buyer)

    I haven’t trimmed very many hulls with it yet. The few that I have, came out perfectly!

  50. Nicholas Schulze (Verified Buyer)

  52. Anonymous (Verified Buyer)

  53. Richard (Verified Buyer)

  54. Craig D. (Verified Buyer)

    Works great! Easy to use.

  55. Steve (Verified Buyer)

    Well made and simple to use once you set the correct length to trim your hulls. Centering the pin in the spent primer is easier if you squeeze the top of the hull lightly while inserting the trimmer. Overall a useful tool for shotshell reloaders.

  56. Anonymous (Verified Buyer)

  57. CHARLES M. (Verified Buyer)

    Works great. Using it on 3 inch 410’s which can be fussy in general, but working fine.

  58. Lee Doughty (Verified Buyer)

    I’ve trimmed about 400 28ga hulls so far. The trimmer works great and really helps the crimps look like they should.

  59. Steve (Verified Buyer)

    Very well made and easy to use. Deciding what length to trim hulls to was the hardest part.

  60. Lon Lauber (Verified Buyer)

    Well made, easybto adjust and works great!

  61. Mark Brown (Verified Buyer)

    I have been using the trimmer since I purchased it in September. After using it on several hundred .410 hulls I still think it is a fantastic tool for reloading. I will be purchasing another reloader for 28 gauge and will be purchasing another for those hulls. The quality of their products are excellent!

  62. Mark (Verified Buyer)

  63. Michael (Verified Buyer)

    Excellent piece of equipment!

  64. Mike Z. (store manager)

    Some nice 28 ga reloads thanks to the ultimate primer punch and the perfect crimp hull trimmer! And an upgrade to my machine!

  71. Anonymous (Verified Buyer)

    Exceeded my expectations. Arrived quickly. Well made and works as described. Very happy with this product.

  72. Barry B. (Verified Buyer)

    Yours is the only one to have. Works beautifully on the first try. A real nice piece of engineering and machining. Easy to see the love and care that went into this tool. With the added spacers supplied with tool, all lengths of hulls covered. Well thought out. Congrats!!

  73. Sam D. (Verified Buyer)

    Great product. Works very well. I will recommend this to all my friends.

  74. Barron Thiessen (Verified Buyer)

    Awesome Hull Trimmer works perfectly, factory crimp every time. Great people to deal with.

  79. Daniel Logan (Verified Buyer)

    The reloading tool appears well made and when I get hull length specifications I’m sure it will work as advertised.

  81. Les Long (Verified Buyer)

    Have not used it yet

  82. Torsten (Verified Buyer)

    What a great tool. It came set up perfectly for the Remington Gun Club that are plentiful at my club. It’s amazing how many of the once fired hulls need trimming to be uniform. Never saw anything come off my reloads, so it appears to really be a one-time effort but the crimps look fantastic for this extra step.

  83. Pat D. (Verified Buyer)

    The hull trimmer works well once you find the primer hole, which sometimes take a little hunting. It would also be nice to know what an average hull length should be for the most popular brands.

  84. Julie B. (Verified Buyer)

    Husband loved it! Trimmed his older STS and Gun Clubs right up. Said that his crimps on his MEC Grabber are the most uniform he has ever done.

  85. JOHNNIE NASH (Verified Buyer)

    Works great, be careful just clean up the shells dont cut too much.

  86. Stephen Howe (Verified Buyer)

  87. Berton Mark (Verified Buyer)

  88. GEORGE M. (Verified Buyer)

    Very well thought out solution to a problem that has been addressed by others. The difference here is unlike quite a few on line suppliers that have “how much can we make on it and it’s good enough” additude.

    Creative Reloading Solutions has used bedrock engineering principles that have fallen out of vogue. Here form followed function resulting in tool that made a tedious task as easy as possible.

  89. Bob P. (Verified Buyer)

    Does a real good job of making ends even & shells the same length

  90. Justin Griffith (Verified Buyer)

    My crimps weren’t very consistent on my hand loads. They come out perfect every time now. Adds another step but worth it for crimp control.

  91. Tim R. (Verified Buyer)

    After trimming 12ga hulls they reloaded without a problem.

  92. Joel (Verified Buyer)

    Works great! Crucial for 28ga AA HS. Hands get sore, but this is the only tool for the job. Online video showing how to disassemble is key to changing blades.

  93. Ron D. (Verified Buyer)

    Excellent product that is well worth the money spent!

  94. Don McFarland (Verified Buyer)

    Sometimes I have difficulty getting the tip to fit into the primer pocket. Other than that, it seems to be well constructed. Have used it on all my Nitro hulls and they look great after they go through my P/W.

  95. Louis Ebare (Verified Buyer)

  96. Bill W. (Verified Buyer)

    Great product and well made.

  97. James S. (Verified Buyer)

    Amazingly it works pretty good. If you want bragging right for a better crimp this tool helps. Better crimp does not mean scores.

  98. JEFFREY (Verified Buyer)

    Works very well. Improves the crimp

  99. Anonymous (Verified Buyer)

    A great product that is well made. I’ve used it on several hundred shells and it has worked great and improved the look and quality of the final crimp. Also it is very easy to use once you get it adjusted with the supplied washers. I only wish I had ordered more of the razors because I’m sure I will be using this a bunch.

  100. Gregg A. (Verified Buyer)

    High quality tool, that everyone who reloads shotgun should have. As Rudy mentioned in his video, AA hulls are usually pretty good, but this tool allowed me to square them up, and help me get that perfect crimp.
    Most importantly though, it improved the consistency of the crimp from shell to shell.

  127. Michael W. (Verified Buyer)

    This is the product that fills the need for a very precise trimmer. The tool ‘headspaces’ on the expended primer whose length can vary widely. I set about measuring spent primers selecting a group with a consistent length plus or minus 1/100 of a millimeter in order to get some very precise hull lengths. Worth it? Maybe. It might also be an idea for another new product.

  128. Richard Burns (Verified Buyer)

    Works as advertised, love the results I’ve been getting.
    Well made and easy to use.
    Don’t let the price stop you , life time tool.
    Made in USA.

  129. David Sotkowy (Verified Buyer)

    A very well made, quality device. Works great, my 410 crimps are all consistent now that the hulls are all the same length, even different makes. The same can be said of my 12ga hulls now. Very pleased and impressed with my purchase. I highly recommend the trimmer for whatever gauge you reload for.

  136. Theodore Olson (Verified Buyer)

    Works well.

  137. Buddy Wilson (Verified Buyer)

    I now get the perfect crimp

  138. Enoch (Verified Buyer)

    The machining is almost a work of art. However, I bought the piece to primarialy cut down hulls to make mini’s with a roll crimp. At initial purchase, I didn’t see the fine print about asking for some special treatment for mini’s. After I received the tool I sent a note to you folks and you promptly replied with a 90% solution. In the solution, the cone shaped piece at the base of the central tube, next to the cutter, is eleminated. That makes for a less than exact case cut. Seems like a better solution is at hand. I can make it work, I am not unhappy, just suggesting that something better should be afoot.

  139. Dennis Manske (Verified Buyer)

  140. Randy S. (Verified Buyer)

    It is a great product wish there was more info on it like different primer height to get the shells to the length you desire. Bought it for the manufacturer of my waterfowl loads.

  141. Neil T. (Verified Buyer)

    I now have 20 gauge 28 gauge and 410 I really love shooting my sub gauges and this tool makes all the shells look like factory now on my
    P/W 800+ I made a adapter to hook the tool to my RCVS Brass Boss it will turn very slow works perfect

  151. Kenneth Earp (Verified Buyer)

    I would give it a 10 star rating if I could. In one of your videos you suggested trimming down to approximately 6.90 inches. I didn’t view that video until after I had adjusted the trimmer. No worries. Coincidentally I adjusted down to approximately 2.690″ to 2.700″. Just enough to trim a sliver off the top of the shortest hull I grabbed out of 10 hulls I measured. The PW 800 Plus I use is a great reloader. You have made it better with your products.

    Great service and great products.

  152. andy

    the hull trimmer is incredibly well-made and does exactly what it is supposed to do, quickly and effortlessly. highly recommended!

  153. Jimmymc95337 (Verified Buyer)

    I have the case trimmer and the primer punch for 12 gauge. Definitely recommend!

  154. Robert Gulley (store manager)

    Everyone that reloads shotgun hulls should have this, make crimping a lot easier. Glad I got one. Been telling other people who reload about this tool.

  155. Mutant Actual (store manager)

    This little tool has saved me much time grief and aggravation. CRS has put together one of the most useful prep tools I have ever used in 30+ years of reloading and I wished I would have found this sooner. Rudy is a great guy and went above and beyond in creating another satisfied customer. Cheers Rudy.

  156. Withthewind03 (store manager)

    I got my Perfect Crimp Handy trimmer and ran about a dozen hulls through it. It was slick as a whistle. I made a small adjustment to the cam but after that everything was perfect! I use to have swirls and holes in my crimp but not anymore. LOVE IT !!!

  157. Frank (store manager)

    extremely well made, adjustable, cuts perfectly flush. will last for years. thanks much Rudy.

  158. R. Mueller (store manager)

    6 Stars?!

    Seriously, what a great tool. No more swirls or holes from uneven factory hull length. Perfect 12ga crimps every time. If my wife decides she wants to shoot 20ga, I’ll be buying the primer punch and trimmer as a set!

  159. William Brown (store manager)

    This is an excellent design for a hull trimmer and will make you crimps turn out as he shows you in the video, this is worth the money.

  160. Michael Reamy (store manager)

    I love precision tools! Thank you, Rudy, for the Handy Trimmer. Fellow shotshell reloaders, don’t waste your time with anything else, I have, and I would have been dollars ahead had I done my research and found the Handy Trimmer!

  161. Jim Soltis (store manager)

    Great tool. I use this on every once-fired shell. The plastic shell stretches as you fire and reload it. This tool trims that extra bit of plastic and allows the further use of the shell and you still get a factory-like crimp. Makes reloading my shot shells easier and smoother too.

  162. Richard Krause (store manager)

    I ordered a 20 gauge trimmer to cut Gun Club hulls to a consistent length for producing good crimps with 3/4 oz loads. I couldn’t be happier with the results. The workmanship on the trimmer is excellent and it does what it was designed to do extremely well. Customer service was outstanding!

  163. William Morris (store manager)

    Rudy has designed another winner with the high quality Perfect Crimp Handy Trimmer for shotgun hulls. I can’t stress enough how much easier crimping is after trimming all hulls the same length. Easy to adjust for 2 3/4 and 3 inch hulls. No more crimps with spirals or crimps with hole left in center of the crimp. All the loaded shells have the same perfect crimp. Anyone who reloads for there shotguns should have one you won’t believe how much better your crimps are it’s amazing. I highly recommend this product!!!
    Thanks Rudy
