I use a Lee .45-70 die with .223 decapping pin. Only caliber that I own that I cant decap with it is 300 RUM.

Lyman. Simple, cheap, all steel. I have a Lee, prefer the Lyman.

Dittos on a dedicated simple press for decapping. Keeps the grit out of your main press.

Does the Lee have replaceable pins or is the pin part of the stud. My .223, it is all one piece? It's the pits if it breaks or bends.Not much use trying to deprime crimped primers. I have an RCBS depriming die and keep a half dozen pins instock

I don't follow you there. I've deprimed lots of crimped in primers with my Lee decapper.

The Lee universal decapping die has a one piece decapping pin. They are $3 each from Lee.

Most have no problem but a few will test your resolve

I think RCBS replaceable pins are but a few cents each. Been awhile since I purchased them,but I know they rare dirt ceap.RCBS has even sent me them free

Just me- I've knocked out I don't know how
many primers with the Lee die including
many many crimped in primers with no
difficulty or problems of any kind.
None of the crimped primers required any
extra special effort or lip biting. The difficulty
was preparing the pocket to receive a new
primer, but I handled that with ease with an
RCBS swager. I haven't had to do that at all
in quite some time after I quit using any
military brass and went to all commercial.
If we ever get out from under the current mess,
I imagine I'll get more brass so I won't be
short like many are these days

+1. RCBs universal decap ping dies ...

I once bought small primer hole brass - but only had to sand down my decap pins and was back in business.
