I liked the Lyman prep station. All you need plus comes with head preps for 22 and 30 cal. All RCBS heads will fit on the Lyman too. Though, the RCBS BOSS prep unit looks interesting as well. Has a variable speed on it. Might wanna look into that too.What about the Lyman? It looks like just what I need. I don’t shoot enough to warrant a girard. For someone with OCD that is tough to say.
I have the Lyman and like it a lot. Does everything I need it to do reliably and there's plenty room to work. I also like that it's a flat top. Makes clean up really easy.What about the Lyman?

Glad you’re happy with your purchase. I think that with the number of trimmers out there, the prep stations are a forgotten tool. The Giraud is a fine machine but is limited to trimming brass that’s gotten long, which it does this very well. But...the Giraud, once set, can only trim to a pre-determined/set length. Unless you have it set to factory brass specs, how do you trim or touch up necks that are shorter than your trim length. Answer is...you either re-adjust your Giraud or you use a prep station to prep new brass and then use the Giraud when it grows enough to trim.Finally got to use my Lyman last night. Damn why did I not buy one of these many years ago.
