    These look good JTD! I did a few coffee cans of various Federal brass on the RCBS Swaging tool. Only to realize that some of the newer headstamps have a deeper crimp than the old ones. When I go to prime, probably one in five will be too tight. I have the swager set deeper now and then run the problem pieces back through it one time. I have one of these crimp trimmers like you have and will probably try it the next time I have freshly crimped brass!

    My problem is that I just never know what I really want. I think I'd like the dillon, but then again, my buddy had the little hornady one.... I have some manual ones...

    I dunno.

    Same with the WFT and what not... Im still on the fence on what I want.

    I opted for the rcbs reamer because I didnít want to have to adjust for different head stamps.
