Back in the late 1970's when I owned a M1A I bought around 1,000 rounds of spent 7.62 Mil brass, I had no problem punching the spent primers out of the crimp and I bought a RCBS primer pocket swage. What a time saver that was, I not sure but I may have bought a swage for 5.56 case as well. If not I may get one because once again we have a Mini 14 which I probably will reload for.

Hmmm... maybe I'll just connect my Beeman hand pump to my current air tank and use that. It will easily charge my RX-1 to 24 bar (348 psi).

You know I have a primer pocket swage somewhere. I hadn't thought of that. I might work better than the cutter, less mess and not make the pocket to big. Thanks.
