    I have a 50 cal ammo can of LC mil spec brass I what to reload.
    I have seen online that the primers are harder to remove. Also they leave crimp makes.

    I have seen a few ways of removing the crimp marks

    1.) PRIMER SWAGER
    2.) counter sink
    3.) rcbi pocket tool

    I would like to know how other people are doing it. is there a cheap ez way.

    thanks

    I used the swager on my last batch of military brass. It worked fine, but you still have to process the primer pocket afterwards.

    I have and have used an RCBS station with the crimp remover and pocket tool. I picked up about 1200 LC08 and it worked like a charm.

    I don't really notice any extra effort depriming mil crimp rounds.
    As far as getting rid of the crimp, I use the Dillon swaging tool.

    Happy Shootin'! -Tom

    i just finished 3000 rounds last month. if i had to do it with the kit from rcbs you couldn't give the brass to me for free and make it worth it.3000 rounds 3 hours with the dillion it's the only way to go
