Universal Primer Pocket Conditioner
(10ga - .410)
Even brand-new shotshells sometimes require that the primer pocket be sized down to a standard 209 size. This tool makes that process easy and saves you money on hulls.
Problem: After a few firings the primer pocket can expand and the primers may not seat tightly. This becomes noticeable when the primer starts to back out as the wad is compressed or the shell is crimped. The primer may even just fall out.
Solution: Instead of throwing away otherwise perfectly good hulls or risking a loose primer, you can resize the hull's primer pocket. Put the unprimed hull onto the tool (as pictured above) into place and give it a couple taps with a hammer (see "Additional Images"). This will resize the pocket back to standard 209 size and will now properly hold the primer in place.
This tool will pay for itself in a very short time. Excellent for resizing Fiocchi, Cheddite, and Rio hulls.

|If you reload Euro hulls and use American made primers, this tool is for you. One wack and the job is done. Heavy duty and very well made. American made too.|

|This sucker really works. I bought a bunch of once fired Rio shotshells for a little of nothing, but U.S. 209 primer were too small. One good rap with a hammer and they fit. Well worth the money.|
