I have used a hand held primer tool for years but was wondering if there is such a thing as a hand held spent primer / decapping tool?

I would assume it would work similarly to the primer tool but in reverse.....

I anyone knows of such a device I would appreciate the manufacurer and model.

Thanks

I guess if you really have the need?... Lee makes a hand press http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.e ... t=11082005 It holds any reloading die including de-capping dies. Or if you want to go the third world route, just use your de-capping pin and a mallet over a hole in something. I watched a video somebody posted on the forums here at AZS showing little kids reloadimg ammo some place in Pakistan. Bunch of little boys were cranking out an impressive amount of ammo, all without the modern goodies we enjoy here.

Hey !!!! I resemble that remark. I grew up reloading 45-70 like that. My dad (a machinist) made his reloading "kit'.

I have a few old books with pictures of shooting matches. Shows the top shooters using basic hand tools and a small machine shop C-press to make record shooting loads. Everything would fit in a medium size tackle box. I tend to be more of a "gotta have the new fangled gadget" junkie :) It keeps me interested and it's just fun to try neat stuff.
