Here is another trick for you on the crimped primers. Guy gave me some buckets of .223 brass him and his Highway Patrol buddies had shot. All crimped primers. I wanted a faster way since it was going to take forever to get that much brass ready. I was asking what reamer to get (the Hornady tool was highly recommended) when a guy showed me how to use my case deburring tool. You probably have one that is pointed (for internal deburring) on one side and has the centering rod on external deburring blades on the other. Chuck it into a drill press using the small centering rod on the external side, so the pointed end is down. Just hold the primer hole up to it for a second. Instantly de crimped. You can easily ruin a case if you go too far, but after playing around for a few minutes you get the hang of it. Works great.
