    Thats what I do, besides it only has to be done once. Sit and "watch" tv while I do a batch. Cant justify the money for swage, when a reamer does me good. I almost bought one because that is what most experts say to do. I thought I would give a hand reamer a try, glad I did.

    30 yrs wow...sounds like expert to me. Only 25 more to go and I got you.

    I use nothing but New 223 Brass as I do not trust any military brass that has to be swaged, as the new brass is not expensive, I load it for my T/C Contender Pistol, that I use for Woodchuck's & Coyote hunting, with no problems & it is just as accurate out to 200 yds as any rifle.Works great in my AR15 as well.

    Why is this? If anything, GI brass is usually thicker and is better for repeated reloading than "civilian" brass. I bought 10K of once-fired GI years ago and am still shooting it.

    I have a swaging die that fits my RockChucker and can do a round every 5-8 seconds - and it's a one-time deal and my wrist doesn't get tired.

    I have used a deburring tool to remove military crimps in LC brass with success. Sinclair International sells a handy tool that allows you to chuck your deburring tool into an electric drill or screwdriver to speed up the process. You can also use a drill press if you have one.
