I use a dremel on my HXP and LC. The HXP goes MUCH faster!

Very minimal reaming with the Hornady primer pocket reamer. Works like a charm.

+1 on the Hornady pocket reamer. Besides removing the crimp, it also trues up the primer pocket, especially in HXP brass. It won't remove the crud, a RCBS primer brush will do that very well.

The stab crimps on my HXP have varied slightly. If you're not sure whether or not they will snag the edge of the primer a quick twist around the lip of the primer pocket with an old pocketknife will take care of them. I've only had to do that with some of my HXP; it may not have been necessary but I didn't want to take a chance.

Like some of the others, I take a few turns in the primer pocket with a RCBS Chamfer & Deburing tool to remove the "Triple Dimple." Then hit the primer pocket with a tool that squares and cleans out the crud. Then a flash hole deburing tool and I'm done. Yes, it is a lot of screwing around, especially if you have several hundred cases to do, but most of it is a one time job. I guess I just enjoy reloading.

I just jam the pocket into the spinning wire brush at the non business end of my Lyman electric case-trimmer, "Bright-n-Shiney Captain."
