It's worth the money for a swage die. I have the C&H setup, it's reasonable, and supposedly better than the RCBS, but not as good as the Cadillac... the Dillon bench mounted swager. It does require some amount of setup to get it just right, however. I don't pick up range .223 brass... I already have about 10K cases of my own bagged up setting around the reloading room waiting to be processed, and I've probably scrapped another 10K. For what reason, I don't know... I don't reload for .223, at least not in any volume. But. Given the current circumstances... you never know.
