Wind compensation can be adjusted to three levels — mild, moderate and severe.

The .257 caliber has been added to the list of available 3-in-1 case mouth cutters from Forster Products. This tool combines case trimming, inside deburring and outside deburring into one fast, easy step. Long-lasting carbide blades simultaneously perform three functions to save time and improve consistency while 1) Trimming the case to length; 2) Chamfering the inside case mouth to an angle of 14 degrees; and 3) Chamfering the outside case mouth to an angle of 30 degrees. Used on a Forster Products original case trimmer, the 3-in-1 case mouth cutter uses high-quality blades made from U.S.-manufactured carbide. If used exclusively on brass cases, these blades should never need sharpening.
