Yes, no problem.
Just remove the military crimps from your primer pockets as you would with any other primer.

Don't be surprised if the Handi Rifle strings shots in straight line. I had a new heavy barrel 223 and it shot groups about 1" wide and 10" high for first three shots. I figured it had not been stress relieve and called the factory and they told me none of them were stress relieved and they told me to send it in. I got it back and it shot about 2.5" but round groups and I let a buddy have it.
