    So when I want to understand... Case Swagger.

    So when I want to understand just about anything I come here. I mean really the internet with all those so called experts.

    So far no one here has lead me wrong,,, well except you guys that think putting lube in you Minnie base works,,,, HA!

    I want to start shooting my 1903 Springfields and have Military Brass with the Military Crimp.

    I would like to know if any one had a Dillion or other swagger and has an opinion?

    Thanks,

    Have several.

    If you plan to do bulk batches of brass get the dillon PPS it is great.
    Mount it to a 2x12 about 20 inch long it will work vreat in youreasy chair or wherever you want.
    They take a lot of room on the bench if you hard mount get one of the QD bases to mount it to.

    The easiest one is the RCBS PPS it is like a die you can ues in a hand press, rock chucker, partner press...
    Place the die, base and cup in your press and go to it.

    It you are not doing many there are several PP tools that cut, chamfer, and clean. Bad thing is you are removing brass and that said could cause primer flow, seating problems or even blow primers...
    Both lyman and Lee make some tools. Even get some all in one tools that clean, trim, chamfer. .....

    David,

    I've used the RCBS PPS for many years. Relatively inexpensive. Screws into your loading press and does an adequate job. Must be careful adjusting it so that not too much pressure is applied to the center spindle or it could be bent or threads damaged. I recently acquired a Dillon PPS. These are pricey but I got mine used at half the price. I just clamp it to my loading bench when needed. It works like a charm and I highly recommend it if your discretionary funds allow.

    David.....

    You came to the N-SSA Bulletin Board asking if anyone "has an opinion?" I don't think you came to the right place......

    Well, I would like to test it as I only have about 30 cases so far.

    Deprimed and cleaned.

    BUT I live in Raleigh and I go to Capron.

    Thanks, I had no idea what you guys were talking about. I though OP was trying to ask about some kind of progressive press.Didn't make the connection of "swagger" with "swager".
