Shouldn't be any burrs.....your cutter is dull or you are pushing to hard or something....I use the Tubb and don't have any burrs.
But to get rid of yours....a quick spin on some sandpaper....320 grit should do it.

always get a little bur on the outside -- FINE steel wool takes care of it.

Re: Meplat Uniforming (what is the best way to get rid of burrs)

you should only be removing about .oo7" - .01" of the meplat to clean up. Any more than that is unnecassary. No mater how sharp your cutter is you will still get a very small burr in the outside of the bullet that you can catch with your finger nail. There shouldn't be any need to push hard at all. Like others have suggested use 0000 steel wool, one light twist and burrs gone.
