More to reloading Berdan prinered brass than removing the primer crimp. Lengthy explaniation.....So here is an article that explains the process:

OH....and not to confuss......Not all crimped primers are Berdan. NATO rounds produced in the US are boxer primed and then crimped. So all you need to do is remove the crimp as usual and ream the pocket with a swagger tool. I know RCBS makes one.

TACTICAL BRASS IS READY TO LOAD! More expensive these days, but the hard part is already complete:D

The Process:
No proprietary chemicals are used that would weaken the finished product
It is first cleaned and inspected to remove damaged pieces, odd caliber rounds and non Winchester brass.
Processed using a Dillon super 1050 to remove primer, and swage primer pocket
Full length sized
Trimmed to correct length
A Dillon Headspace/Case Gage is used as the standard for sizing and trimming.
Polished using a tumbler with corncob media
Inspected again.
Final product is packaged using a counting scale with a few extra included just to be sure.
