A cheap Harbor Freight chop saw with an abrasive blade to get within about 10 thousands of the final length of 0.898"  Drilled a couple of half-inch holes in a block of oak to hold the cases while chopping off. 

 

Then a Lyman case trimmer to do that last little bit of trimming to length.  Can trim about 3-4 a minute that way.  Then a hand reaming tool to bevel inside and outside the mouth.

 

With a power case processing tool, those steps would be even faster.

 

good luck, GJ
