Military brass will need the primer pockets swaged to remove the crimp. All cases should be checked for length, and trimmed as necessary. As others have stated, a small base sizer may be required for tight chambers. Pistol bullets and some rifle bullets aren't boattailed, so an expander die to flare the mouth for seating, and a crimp die to remove the flare post seating. That's my plan, we'll see how it goes.
