Geez... I tried de-capping Berdan primers probably 30 years ago, when a friend gave me about 500 foreign .30-06 cases, as I recall. It was a royal PITA to say the least. I did 100 or so, reprimed them then sold off the entire bunch for the scrap price of the brass. Hagar, points out that RCBS now has a decapping tool that works well so that may indicate that things have changed over the intervening years...or (LOL), Hagar has a higher tolerance for mind-numbing piece work than I do...no offense is meant BTW...Rod

It proudly waves because a soldier's dying breath blows upon it.
