Hello, I reload the 9mm and I ask myself this question. I pick up the cases on the ground when I go to the shooting range, some are difficult to reload (crimped primer). What I'd better buy? a case prep. center RCBS or a Dillon super swage 600, it's almost the same price, i'll put a reamer on RCBS case prep, what do you think about this? I need your experience.
Thank you all

I've always been a believer in swaging primer pockets on brass that will experience high pressures. Particularly in cartridges like the .223, where they get loose, swaging is what I believe in.

The only crimped 9mm I have is WWII Canadian SMG brass I fired long ago, and I swaged it. I am coming across a lot of crimped .40 S&W lately, and am swaging it too.

I have one of the RCBS case prep centers, a Dillon super swage, and an old RCBS press-mounted swage. The RCBS press mounted swage gives the best quality primer pocket. The Dillon does not quite get all of the crimp sometimes, requiring just a little hand chamfer sometimes.

+1 - I don't care for reaming material away from the pocket area. I use the Dillon for speed altho the RCBS die swager is there for when I just want to do the odd piece.

Just for giggles try and ream out a non crimped round and see how much brass you remove.

i always suggest a benchtop drill press instead of a case prep center. does everything a case prep center will. cheaper, more robust, lots of other uses.

i have been very happy with my dillon super swage, but 9mm brass is so plentiful and cheap that i wouldn't bother to swage it.
