Primer Pocket Swaging LR to LP

Recommended Posts

Does anyone still make a pocket swager to change the primer pocket from Large Rifle to Large Pistol? I have one but don’t have access to it at the moment. Every swager I see is for removing crimps on military brass.

???  Large rifle and large pistol are both .210.

It makes the pocket shallower somehow.

I can see making it deeper, but how do you make a primer pocket shallower?

 

 

You have my curiosity peaked so I came back and edited this post.  Why would anyone want to do this?

PLUS ONE for Pettifogger !!

 

I don't mean to be sarcastic (yes I do) but it would seem to be Oxymoron.  The only way I know to make a primer pocket shallower is to fill it in.  Actually changing from LR to LP accomplishes nothing.  the firing pin will still reach a LP Primer.

I think there's a tool that basically compresses the pocket from the inside...therefore making the pocket depth a bit shallower...I think...

That is what it does but it is only about .002-.003".  Hardly worth the effort.
