It has crimped pockets. We've covered this...

Most of what I have bought is Am. Eagle and most of that in 5.56. Looking at them compared to the pics in CPJs and other links I would say yes it is crimped. The last (first) group I did I suspect was .223 picked up from my daughters BF when we shot his AR. Until I order one like the Lyman above, do the hand tools work?

I like that! I've been hearing about CH4D a lot lately, they're located about 20 min from here.

I think I'm going to order the CH 4d. I like the looks of that one. I've been wanting one of these tools for nearly 20 years. I got by with a cutter tool that fits my case trimmer. But I didn't like the results. I cuts at an angle and takes away way more metal than I believe necessary and I can see it shortening case life because you lose a lot of support in the primer pocket, and it looks like the primers could get loose a lot quicker. The swager doesnt' cut or remove metal, It merely displaces it.
