primer pocket swagers - dillon

Recommended Posts

Like most people, I hate removing primer pocket crimp on military brass. Its very time consuming. Ive tried many different tools designed to remove it. RCBS swage dies, reamers, drill bits and chamfer tools. They all kinda suck to use. Reamers and chamfer tools work but using hand tools on thousands of brass takes forever and can be tiring. Drill bits and countersinks also work but can easily remove too much material and mess up your brass. The RCBS Swage die is very inconsitant and the brass likes to get stuck on the swager alot. Primer pocket swaging is unavoidable with military brass. Until recently I did not enjoy reloading 223/556 for this reason.


Last week I picked up the Dillon Super Swage 600. This thing is easy to use, fast, and super consistant. Though it is 3-5xs more expensive than anything else out there, it is well worth the money. A few minutes after I removed it from the box i was rocking out 223 brass. Ive already swaged over a thousand peices of brass and fully reloaded a few hundred. The dillon rolls the top of the crimp away and its the same round after round. The primers go in very smoothly and have yet to crush one. So far I dont see a need for a uniformer. This thing Rocks! I now enjoy loading 223. So much so that I bought another powder measure to keep set up for 223/556 (I now have 4 - one for 223, two for my 2 fav 40S&W loads and one for everything else.). Ill probably pick up another trimmer to keep set up for 223.


If you load 223, dont mess around. Get The Dillon!

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon. This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
