    I noticed that problem with corn cob media, so I'd use a small dental pick to clean them out. Eventually, I stopped doing that, and never had a problem with the primer blowing it out for me. Never...

    I use an RCBS swager on the press. I kinda hate it, and it takes a while to process through a large batch, but it does a fantastic job of removing the crimp.

    I take my hopper off the press and blow it out with some canned compressed air.


    But one or two granules of a different powder, I tend to not worry all that much.
