Even if you are using .223Rem brass you are still going to to get some with crimped primer pockets. I pick up pretty much every head stamp made of brass at the range. PMC most tend to have crimped pockets, as do a lot of Federal FC stamped brass.

I know Hornady brass does not have crimped pockets, and tends to be great for case life as well. I will go out of my way to pick it up if I can.

I use the Lyman primer pocket reamer. It works, it can be chore when doing a couple of thousand cases. I full length resize then trim/chamfer/debur. Then I remove the crimps from the pockets. Takes about a minute or so for each sized case if I am going at a steady, not rushing pace. The good part is you only have to remove the crimp once.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
