The F.A. Case Prep & Trim system has an MSRP of $199.99, but you can usually find it online for under $175. The Case Prep Expansion Kit is $39.99 (again less online).
If you cannot afford the F.A. Case Prep & Trim system or do not reload enough brass to justify its cost, you are still faced with the problem of crimped primer pockets in “military brass“. The folks at Frankford Arsenal did not forget you. They now offer a Case Prep Essentials Kit with the same tools as the Expansion Kit and a chamfering and deburring tool, but with handles for hand use. This is a must-have if you do much reloading. The Essential Kit has an MSRP of $59.99, but you can find it a bit lower online.
