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.

Graf & Sons - K&M PRECISION PRIMER POCKET UNIFORMER (SMALL)

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.
