Hi can anyone help I have a heap of cases that have primer crimp in 223 anyone know of a cheap easy way to remove crimp thanks
What he saidThey can be cut out with a chamfer tool, like RCBS sell used for de-burring casenecks or swaged out with a primer pocket swaging tool. That RCBS also sells and isn't much use for anything else.
Cutting out is quicker and chamfer tools are easily available. And unlike the swager route doesn't require you have a reloading press.
Swaging out is better and once set up as quick as cutting and the preferred method IMHO.
That said I have always cut out ring crimps on primers with a chamfer tool and if you go easy works well enough.
