Primer Pocket?

Do you always clean your Primer Pockets or alter them in any way?

I run my pocket uniformer thru them everytime, it is just one of the steps I always do in my case prep.

+1.

I always swage the pockets on new brass so that the primer seats uniformly. This is more important on Remington/Winchester brass than it is on the higher-end stuff like Lapua brass. It also cleans/clears the pocket when reloading used brass.

Always clean primer pocket, Then I deburr flash hole one time ONLY per piece of brass. Never have uniformed though.

Re: Primer Pocket?

I've always Uniformed pockets and Deburred flash holes (both just one time).

But I've also always cleaned the pockets every reload. I hand de-prime and hand prime the cases also.

I've been told that uniforming and deburring isn't necessary on Lapua brass however, because they are supposedly machined instead of punched.??

Re: Primer Pocket?

You have Lapua & Norma mixed up.
Lapua is not as uniform, and can benefit from pocket work.
