New bench swager is purchased and reviewed. (Video added)

I did an in depth picture review of the tool at
including a video of it in use.

If you are giving this tool some consideration, or are just curious about how it compares to the Dillon tool, check it out.

I have used the RCBS swaging dies in a Lee Challenger press. If you have used them or aonther brand of swaging dies, could you please share your opinions of them? Are there any distinct advantages or disadvantages of one type tool over the other?

If you have used the press-mounted RCBS swager, then you can gauge that yourself, by looking at my video where I'm swaging, then uniforming the pockets, as well as deburring the flash holes. It's just easier....easier on me and easier on my press. The new RCBS tool cost me $85. The Dillon 600 Super Swage is very similar, and has been around for quite a while. There are YouTube videos of that tool also. Similar quality...little different stroke, $15 to $20 cheaper.....if that matters that much. Both are great tools.

Nice video, thanks for posting.
