    I have used many methods until I got the Dillon tool. Now it's the only one I use, built like a tank...

    For the RCBS, Collecting and Shooting the Military Surplus Rifle (2006) - Surplusrifle.com (either read about the LE Wilson trimmer, or scroll down to the RCBS section)

    This gives a good review of the Dillon, Inland Shooters

    If you can afford it, the Dillon will likely be the quickest & easiest.

    The Dillon has two different swage rods/decrimpers. One for small rifle primers and one for large.

    Depending on which type case needs the primer pocket swaged determines the size of the swager. The case is placed on the swaging rod and then is adjusted to remove the crimp. The closer you adjust the swager rod the larger the swage or crimp removal.

    Once you have everything setup (this isn't rocket science), you can quickly remove the crimp from cases. I do this prior to accomplishing anything else to the case.

    I have had some LC 74 (.308) cases that the primer pocket was small and no matter how much swaging was done the primer would not fit. I had to run a primer pocket uniformer (which cuts the primer pocket to correct size) into the primer pocket to seat the primers correctly. But that only happened on about 40 cases that I had.

    All the other cases (.5.56mm and .308) I didn't have any problem with.

    I've been using the RCBS tool for 30 years. It swages the crimp back out. I've had no trouble with primer pockets getting loose when using this tool. The only draw back is that it does this with the case mostly out of sight: the pocket reforming mandrel being in place of the shell holder on the press ram, and an opposing rod bearing against the inside bottom of the case, the opposing rod being held in a die body that does not touch the case, and the case is run up into the die body on the press ram.

    I have no experience with the Dillon, but it looks nice.

    There are other choices. The CH tool does it where you can see what's going on, but it rips the rims off a lot of cases.
