    Does anyone have/used one of these? And if so thoughts, praises, gripes about it? I'm thinking about getting one. I just started reloading last year and have a Lyman reaming tool but I find it virtually useless.

    It looks like the dillon one so i am sure it works pretty good. w

    I have one but prefer my Hornady primer pocket reamer

    I had the dillon. It worked great. Also had the press mounted RCBS model. It worked but not real convenient. Dillon was better. Now I just cut the crimp out of the occasional crimped case and sold off both the swager tools.
    Finally Home, NC

    Oh my gosh Mable, we did it, we finally arrived. Where, Ralphie? Sesame Street!

    the RCBS bench-mounted primer pocket swager has only just hit the market in the past month or two. not very many reviews out there yet. it's extremely similar to the dillon super swage.

    i have the dillon super swage and it works very well, especially after the addition of a string and rubber band.

    Thanks for the heads up as I was confusing it for the their press mounted swager.

    Looks like the Dillon Super Swager which works well. Fir the money though I still prefer my Hornady Primer Pocket Reamer. Cost less than $10 and works much faster.

    Funny you should mention that. I just watched the video the other day. Are you the one that came up with the idea? If so brilliant. :thumbup:

    nope, i saw the video and just copied it. actually, i had the super swage loaned out to my uncle and i showed him the video and he made the modifications. you wouldn't think it'd make that much of a difference, but it's a lot faster now.

    I ordered one which should be delivered Monday. Hope it works good...I hate hand reaming crimped primer pockets.

    It does look like it operates like the Dillion. I really like my Dillion set up.

    I decided to get it. It came in last week. I've got it mounted to a 2x4 due to space limitations. I did a couple hundred cases Saturday and I really like it. It will not be as fast as the dillon with the rubber band modification but it's a lot faster than reaming. I give it a thumbs up.

    Just got mine this evening, plan to assemble it tonight. Did you have any difficulty adjusting it?

    No I didn't.

    I have been using a RCBS for 20-25 years....... The one that is press mounted, it is fast.
    I also have a Dillon, it is good but takes the room and to me is slower.

    Just FYI, this RCBS unit is much smaller than I thought, a little over 6" not including the handle.

    That's what I like about it. Smaller footprint for the limited space I have to work with.
