RCBS Bench Mounted Primer Pocket Swager

Does anyone have any experience with the RCBS Bench Mounted Primer Pocket Swager ? Looks to be similar to the Dillon 600 but with the exception to the handle swinging horizontally instead of vertically.

Set one up a couple months ago to swage primer pockets on 5.56x45. Worked fine for me - no issues.

I did a video demo and review HERE. Works very well. One of the pieces of brass wasn't yet deprimed in the video...duh...took me two tries to figure that out.

When using the rcbs bench mounted swager is it necessary to sort the brass right down to the year ?

Nope.

RCBS also makes a bench mounted primer seater. In the olden days we did all this off the press. The extra, (non electrical tools), bench mounted stuff is worth it.
