I just de-prime with my Dillon and use a RCBS de-burr tool. I've done thousands of cases like that with this tool

I second this motion. Lol

I use my deburr tool for these cases when accuracy is not a huge concern because it is fast.

A case deburring tool in the drill press works great.

yeah you don't need to de-burr much. Just enough for the primer not to get hung up on the lip.

I'll go along with JonM. I buy pulled or once fired military brass in 223 and 30-06. I deprime them and I bought a Dilllon super swage 600 and it is worth the money. If you are going to reload a lot of millitary brass I recommend you get one. There are others that you can get but IMO this is the best.

All the swagers are nice.

The cheapest method is place a reamer or chamfer tool in drill press and
ream the pocket, fast, quick and easy. Set the drill press on the lowest
rpm setting available. A light touch on each case is all that is needed.

I have and use both the RCBS press mounted unit and the Dillon Super Swage 600. Admittingly after I purchased the Dillon, the RCBS unit pretty much sits. The Dillon Super Swage works very fast and really does a good job in removing the heaviest of primer crimps. Well worth the $100.00. I've decrimped thousands of cases with it.
