    That's what I was thinking as well. But for that 45-70 stuff I "think" I really should clean the primer pockets. I am mostly concerned about primers not seating properly if the pockets aren't cleaned, and then having to deal with trying to figure out how to get an unspent primer out of a case. Would you normally just junk the round if that happens?

    My first .45-70 reloading tools. A nail to punch out primers, hinge to seat primers, scoup for powder, and cork wads to hold in the charge of BP in the case. I seated the wad about 3/8 inch in the case and dropped the bullet on top. They would hold together long enough to single load in a trapdoor Springfield rifle.

    Find a long nail, file or grind the point down until the tip is small enough to go through the flash hole. Heat the end cherry red and plunge it in water or oil to harden it.
    Set the case over a block of wood with a hole for the spent primers, insert the punch in the flash hole and tap with a hammer.

    Hey Bears,

    The Dillon 550B is hands down the most versatile, user friendly progressive press made. Coupled with the No BS Guarantee, can't be beat.

    Hey Diablo,

    For 30-06 and 22-250, I use two toolheads. One for sizing/de capping and trimming. Have Dillon power trimmer on station #3.

    I uniform primer pockets and flash holes on all rifle brass. With 45/70, (have C&H TiN coated sizing die) I just withdraw case, after sizing/de capping. Uniforming primer pockets/flash holes only needs done once.

    Later, Mark

    Hey Diablo,

    Wearing safety glasses, just de cap primer normally. Gentle pressure will "unseat" primer. Have yet to "detonate" one. (Have detonated a few "seating" them)

    One should always wear safety glasses when reloading, any how.
