Re: Primer Pocket Cleaning Help

I use a primer pocket uniformer - power it with an electric screw driver or cordless drill. Primers seam to seat with way more consistency in my opinion.


They also make them in large rifle, small pistol, etc.

I think the stainless is easier, but ultrasonic leaves the whole case spotless inside and
out also.

Re: Primer Pocket Cleaning Help

This post reminds me of Tremors 3, when Burt was telling the government agents how he was going to tranquilize the graboids inexpensively.

After I anneal my brass, I dry the primer pocket with a piece of t-shirt and dowel rod; takes about 2 seconds. That is as clean as it gets.

Try some spit on a piece of cloth and dowel rod.
