Wow what a great tool
I spent weeks looking at different tools for working the primer pockets of once fired military brass. I finally settled on the Dillon 600 Super Swage and boy, am I glad I did.

Spending a little time to adjust the case holder I was able to get the primer pockets exactly how I like them (just slightly snug). The rest was easy, 500 once fired military 7.62x51 cases were ready for a new primer in about one hour. You can’t ask for a better made tool for prepping military brass primer pockets.
I highly recommend the Dillon Swage if you are working with military brass.
An excellent tool
I just got this 2 days ago. I have used it to swage out the crimp on about 200 cases of 223/5.56 brass. This tool works very well. In fact it works PERFECTLY. Some people on other sites have complained but I think they have not adjusted it properly. You want to adjust it so it swages just enough and not too much with a complete throw of the lever. It will feel very light at the end of the throw like you really didn't do much of anything. This is because the tool has A LOT of mechanical advantage with the lever and cam arrangement.

Do this by starting out with a very light swage and trying to set a primer. If it doesn't slide right in then adjust it in just a little bit, 1/8 turn at a time and try again until it is just right. Tighten down the lock nut and go!
I like to feel my primers go in with a little resistance and a firm seat. That way I know they are no going to fall out.
This tool is worth every penny it costs. It is MUCH faster to use than those ones that mount in a press and built to last a lifetime.
I would recommend it to a friend and would buy it all over again.
