case saver swage for primer pockets

hey i've got about 50 pieces of rem .243 brass thats getting some loose primer pockets, would this tool http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?s...id=911104&t=11082005 be worth buying? obviously it costs about double what 50 .243 rem brass do, but would it pay off int the long run? really that useful and effective? thanks!

Re: case saver swage for primer pockets

I us the hart's on 338 edge brass. Works as staited. Have not found anything about the end result that I don't like. The process requires you to hit the tool with a hamer usually twice. Wish I had something that worked with a press. The primer is securely held in place though it seams after shot pocket losens back up to previous lose fit. Then just swage it again. Have not tryed multiple times though, but it puts my mind at ease knowing no gas is going to escape back at me. I know most throw brass away after 5-7 reloads in the edge. Other than lose primer pocket is there some other reason for this. Don't know about 243 though. Any one else swage the pockets care to chime in?

Good shooting

I'm tempted also. goodgrouper has ordered some so I may wait until he tries them out and if he says they work well, send my order in then.
