Are the primers crimped in on factory LC09?

I bought 1 box, for the brass, & just to try 5.56.

If they're crimped in, what is the extra step in the process to reload?

thanks

Yes, LC 5.56mm brass is crimped. There are relatively inexpensive tools available that remove the crimp (about $35), and then there is the best (Dillon Super Swage 600) for about $100.

Hornady primer pocket reamer (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=253550). Cheap and easy, but slow.

Super Swage 600 (http://www.dillonprecision.com/content/p/9/pid/25263/catid/8/Super_Swage_600). The Cadillac

RCBS primer pocket swager (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=447022). Works pretty well.
