Re: Hart's "case saver"primer pocket swager
I tinkered with my case saver a little tonight for the first time and I "saved" a couple of pieces of brass that were way blown out. Pockets had maybe .010" of clearance on a new primer in some cases and now they hold primers again.
I think this tool works good although I have only done just a few cases. The directions say to tap the punch lightly but I had to really whack it with a hammer hard twice to get it to form the ring around the pocket. And I noticed that you really need to hold the punch straight or it will try to go in on an angle under the pressure. But I got the hang of it pretty quick and now I have some cases I can shoot that haven't seen the light of day in several years.
One other thing I should mention is that some cases require the small stand and large punch or vice versa so it's probably a good idea just to order both the small and large case saver kits so you have the bases covered.
If it's not far, it's boring.
