Has anyone used the RCBS 3-way trimmer (270) to trim, chamfer and debur conversion brass to 277 WLV? Will the 270 version work on the 277 WLV? It looks like it does not use the shoulder to set the depth but uses a pilot.

Yes - I use 3-way trimmers in my RCBS power trimmer for all my rifle cases, including the .277 WLV.  You still want to cut the brass first with a chop saw, there is too much to just trim.  If you need help on converting 5.56x45mm/.223 brass to WLV, there are lots of detailed posts on this forum.

Thanks RANGERJOE.

I wanted to make sure that the RCBS tool (270 version) would work for the trimming part.

This will be my first foray into converting cases. I decided to skip 300 BLK and go straight to 277WLV 😉. I plan on getting the Harbor Freight saw and jig. I have a shopsmith that I will use to chuck up the cutter to mass trim the 1000 LC cases I have been hoarding.

Excellent!  I don't know what a "shopsmith" is - just make sure every case head/base is held secure against a firm stop... allowing all trim lengths to be the same.  When correctly adjusted (which can take some fiddling), the RCBS 3-way cutter trims, chamfers, and be-burrs cases to +/- 0.0005"!!  I love a one-stop trim station!
