    I was wondering if there is an easy way of removing the military primer crimp without buying an expensive swager tool?
    Thanks

    I have a RCBS swager, new, unused, that I would sell for $20. I've decided I have enough brass to go with a Dillon instead. I'll be in Rochester in a couple weeks. PM if interested.

    You can also use a debur tool, but the swagger is the way to go.

    There is one that costs about $100 that's really fast - swager. Can't remember the name.

    I don't believe in reaming - removing material.

    I use the RCBS swager linked above in a dedicated smaller single stage press. Works fine and you only have to do it to a case once. :thumbup:

    The RCBS swager works just fine. If you are doing thousands you might want to think about the Dillon.

    The really fast one is the Dillon.

    +1 for the Dillon, got one on the bench, very nice.

    I have done 700 rounds with the RCBS tool also, works well, takes longer.
