*NB: Only to be used on discharged primers. Always wear eye protection when using tools like theses. Using this hand tool with some Pistol cartridges needs extra care. The pin must be in the flash hole before attempting to push the handle! Otherwise the pin will break. For most Rifle cartridges the case will not fit into the head/shellholder part of the tool until the pin is actually in the flash hole anyway. But some Pistol cases are very shallow in their case web, so it could happen. Please be aware and take care.
Also available is a decapping rod for small flashholes .062 and a replacement STD rod being .070″ size.
