Best tool for removing military crimp?

Recommended Posts

I want to use 223 and 308 GGG brass for reloading as I gathered quite a bit. What would be the best way to remove military crimp from the primer pockets?

TIA,

Michal

Hi Michal. Primer pocket reamer. Hornady et al manufacture, 1967spud and CDSG sell them. Not expensive, had mine years, saved hundreds of cases

The Dillon  Swaging Tool is the quickest and most efficient, and is also adjustable and works for both primer pocket sizes

Hornady primer pocket reamer running in my lathe at high speed, takes literally seconds per case.

This.

I have RCBS swager, Lyman and Hornady crimp removers, but none of them come close to the Dillon. Not the cheapest, but buy once, cry once.

Still cheaper than a lathe though, but not quite as many Willy waving points!
