    Do any of you have a favorite way of decapping primers with using a press?

    I collect used brass, which I may eventually sell, and I'd like a simple and effective way of removing the primers before tumbling without buying a million different shellholders.

    I deprime with a universal depriming die on a Lee hand press (with appropriate shell holder), or on my co-ax press which does not require different shell holders for most cartridges.

    It seems like there is a "Pope" style decapper that does not use a shell holder, but I have not tried it. It is a hand tool.

    Finally, Lee sells a base and decapping pin that you strike with a hammer, that will work with any cartridge.
