    I am wondering how many of you have used this and how well it works. I have reloaded for bolt guns for a long time and I am going to be processing LC brass. If you have any recommendations let me know.

    I have used a 600 for about 5 years. Once, you set it up, it works great. I originally bought it because I had about 15K LC brass and it did not disappoint me. I can't imagine swaging pockets any other way with such good results. That's my $0.02....best wishes

    it works quick. you do have to watch and make sure the swageing rod enters the casing just right or it will ruin your brass. I had a friend come over and try to use mine for his own brass and he just couldnt get the feel right and ruined as many as he swaged.

    Yep! When I use mine, it's mounted to my bench vertically. I keep my finger on the case, and go slow to make sure the rod enters the pocket properly. It would be very easy to ruin a case if I tried to hurry.

    The SuperSwage is #1 on my ToGet list... excellent tips! I like the idea of mounting it vertically.

    I "automated" mine. Not an original idea. Works great.

    I think it works very well and it's quick too. I also "automated" mine but with a rubber band in stead of a spring.
