Frankford Arsenal Case Prep Expansion Kit and Case Prep Essential Kit
The previously reviewed Frankford Arsenal Case Prep & Trim System is essentially complete. The only tools lacking with this system were primer pocket crimp cutters (removers).
The increased popularity of military calibers, most of which use crimped primers, dictated that Frankford Arsenal make an expansion kit available. If you are a reloader who uses a lot of military brass, the Frankford Arsenal Case Prep Expansion Kit is an essential addition.
It contains a large and small primer pocket crimp remover and a primer pocket uniformer/cleaner for large and small primers. With the addition of this kit, there is virtually no case prep job that cannot be accomplished with the Frankford Arsenal Case Prep & Trim system. The 2017 MSRP of the Case Prep Expansion Kit is $39.99.
If you cannot afford the Frankford Arsenal 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. The manual Case Prep Essential Kit has a 2017 MSRP of $59.99, but you can find it for a bit less online.
