before I had an actual primer pocket swager, I used a 2 rod system that I called my redneck swager.

one rod went through the neck of the case and was long enough to touch the bottom of the case and stuck out a few inches, this end went in the vice.

The other rod was just a cold steel punch that I ground by hand on a benchtop grinder to be the right size, it was also tapered because all I wanted to do is remove the crimp at the base not resize the pocket.

I just put the one rod in in a vice stuck a case on it and lightly tapped the other rod into the primer pocket with a small hammer, crimp removed.
