Just resized some GI brass that was loaded by TTI Armory and those dudes crimped the damn primers. Anyone know where I can get a primer pocket swager for the 50 at a decent price (less than $100)?

Just use your inside neck deburring tool.

Take a piece of the brass to the local hardware store and get a reamer that's a little bigger then the primer pocket. You only need to take off a little bit of material to get rid of the offset primer crimp that they use.

I'll try that again. I was afraid of taking too much brass off the side opposite the crimp. I also didn't want to force to primer and have it detonate in my face.

Rokchukrslave is correct, I just take a few twists with my deburring tool and primers pop in perfectly.

OK, maybe I need a tool! I just snapped off the handle from my Lee Classic Press seating a primer.......lol. I just got it for Xmas and on the third primer it broke. At least I live in Milwaukee and Lee is a 25 min drive from where I live. I seems that they used cast metal on the part that hold the handle to the press and that part shattered into 4 pieces. You would think that they would have used milled steel.

Well, I went out to Lee with the old part. Met Mr.Lee and he gave me two spares for free and assured me that the new ones would not break. It looks like the old part was just bad metal. Loaded 5 rounds without a problem!
