    i don't bother. Use your champer tool. A few turns and it's done.

    PP crimps are the downside to .223 (and some brands of 7.62/.308 cases) such as American Eagle headstamped 'F C 223', Lake City 'L C (yy)' ... both made by Federal, plus Radway Green (RG, and RORG), IMI, IK, and the new GGG, to name just a few.

    These often come up for sale on SD cheap for this reason. Unless these are FOC you need to buy more kit to salvage them so any saving sometimes isn't worthwhile.

    Hand tools like case neck chamfers, or even a penknife will work for small volumes at a pinch but you need ambition and prehensile thumbs to tackle large quantities . I'd go for a specialised bench mounted rig, or an accessory to an existing lathe-type case trimmer .... which would be the cheapest solution.

    ATB.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    I have been wondering about a tool like this for the pile of GGG in 308 that I have acquired from my range work.
