Roger that. I was just advised to do likewise so as to no break the decapping pins in normal reloading dies. So I purchased the Lee decapping punch and base. In the past week I've decapped 1000 Lake City once fired brass cases in 5.56. Lee will replace anything that breaks forever and ever. It's a toughened up decapping tool designed to get those crimped in primers out and keep on ticking like a Timex.Kinda humble, I use a decapping punch and base...some of them are tough to get out but, it works.
