That's great news. I've updated http://stevesfn57.blogspot.com/2004/07/57mm-x-28mm-ammunition-reloading.html (I'd previously listed the special order dies.)

I read here some where that some one said a lyman 32 would work, I recieved mine today and tried it, It left a small horseshoe shape indent on the botom of the case around the primer, not going to use it, although its of for the case trimmer, so all is not lost

Hello all.

I want to share this with you so here goes. I went ahead and ordered the RCBS Trim Pro Kit and the 3-way cutter head so I can trim/debur/chamfer my 5.7 cases. I called RCBS to order the necessary trim pro shell order and was informed that #90345 "does not fit the 5.7.' Imagine my suprise after shelling out a hundred clams for the trimmer and the cutter head only to find out it is useless for me right now. I ended up calling RCBS back and I inquired whether or not there is another shell holder that would fit the bill. The customer service agent on the other end of the line told me he was not sure about that and he promised to call me back with a definitive answer shortly. As of this post, I have yet to hear back.

While I had the fellow on the line, I asked him if the RCBS trim die was available in 5.7x28 FN. You guessed it, there is no such thing. It appears that RCBS is dead end for 5.7 case trimmers for the time being.

I had the same problem. I took a chance and ordered the RCBS Trim Pro Case Trimmer Shellholder #12 ( Midway Product #: 203675) and it works GREAT!! I have the 3way cutter also.
