There’s no longer any need to set up a press and reset your dies to deprime spent cases, as Frankford Arsenal’s Platinum Series Hand DePrimer allows handloaders to deprime used brass in just four steps. Simply insert the case into the case holder, push the case holder down into the depriming position, squeeze and release the lever, and remove the case. When finished, remove the primer catch tube to collect the spent primers. The Hand DePrimer is constructed of solid, die-cast aluminum, works on both pistol and rifle cases and features a universal collet system that can accommodate brass from .20 caliber up to .338 Lapua Mag.
