The hardened steel swage punch is automatically extracted from the primer pocket by five 400 pound force disc springs.
Swage holder, large or small, installs in seconds into your press ram with no adjustments required.
Primer pocket swaging is so fast you’ll want to swage all range brass.
Nothing reduces priming problems on a progressive press more than properly swaged primer pockets. Surplus military and police department brass is a great low cost source of cases.
