Dillon Super Swage 600 WOW!!!

Been reloading for over 30 years and have always used the Lee primer pocket reamer to get rid of the military brass crimp. Finally got a Super Swage for Christmas and all I can say is WOW. Why did I wait so long to get one. I did 850 cases last night in about 4 hours. Today I did a quick mod that will save me a bit more time. Can't figure out how to imbed video so here's the link.

I've used the Dillon and it is indeed effective but at over $100 you really have to process a lot of brass the justify it.

A lower cost and nearly as effective a tool is the RCBS "Primer Pocket Swager 2" (Primer Pocket Swager Combo 2 by RCBS RELOADING PRODUCTS )

For about $35 it does as good a job and is almost as fast.

I have a friend who used to use the RCBS then changed over to the Dillon. He said is was like night and day difference between the two. The only thing I regret is not having bought one sooner.

I've been using the Dillon for a few years now. For those that haven't used it they can't believe what a fantastic reloading tool it is! It really simplifies the de-crimping process.

RCBS does make a bench tool very similar to the Dillon and I'm not sure if you are referring to it or the press mounted tool I linked to.

As I mentioned, I've used the Dillon tool and the RCBS press mounted tool isn't as fast but it is effective if you are dealing with modest amounts of military brass.

I have the RCBS press mounted one, not very impressed.
Going to give the Dillon one a try.

I used the RCBS press mounted swaging tool, the one linked to above, for about 30 years, it was a huge pain in the ass, it was slow and didn't really work very well. Three or four years ago I got the Dillon Super Swage, after using it for a little while I was kicking myself, why hadn't I gotten one of those sooner?

The Dillon Super Swage was more effective and it was fast, very fast. There are some adjustments that can be made, but after you use it for a little while you don't really adjust it so much as do it by feel, it just takes a bit of experience to know how much pressure to apply.

I wasted my time fooling with that stupid RCBS press mounted tool, now RCBS has a bench mounted tool which is clearly a copy of the Dillon. I have my tool screwed to a piece of 2x4 and just put it in the bench top vise when I want to use it.

After some primer seating issues with .223 brass on a new 650 and reading up in this forum, bought the Super Swager and now "living the dream". All the manual pocket cleaners left well behind me now.

That's what I have set up in my old single stage Rockchucker.

It's way better than doing them by hand.

When I first got into reloading rifle rounds i went right to the Dillon as i got a lot of unfired military brass and didn't want to pay the little extra for the swagged ones. I don't use it much but when I do it is so sweet. There is no reason not to have a good tool to work with.
