Can anyone help me with this? I have some military brass that I want to reload. Will it damage my die when I de-prime because of the crimped primer? Once I have de-primed the brass how do I remove the crimp?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

About the worst that has happened to me is that the decapping pin bent. I always have a few spares around.
RCBS makes a primer pocket swager that works well. If I only have a few cases to process, I use a hand deburring tool to remove the crimp from the the primer pocket.

They also make a stand alone machine that does this, the Dillon Super Swage 600 which is a lot cheaper.

HTH,

Lee & several other companies make a universal de-prime die . That is what I use . I have the RCBS swagging die for the primer pockets , but still need to ream the burrs and sharp edges , so the primers will not get cought up & try to start crooked .

Only have to do this the first time .

Dudes, I have 2500 Lake City Mil spec never been shot brass. (well a few 100 TWs too)

I use the RCBS swage. THEN a hand held Lyman reamer.

It seems the swag by itself doen't get the very end near the flash hole. I had a few primers dimble when i seated them. Not any more with the two stage pocket procedure.

Oh yeah buy stock in primer pins. I have two dies and 20 pins on hand for when i start doing once fired. I did a batch earlier for the heck of it. I got 37 primers out before breaking my first pin.
