Just remove the primers. Slow press out with Universal Sizing die, or regular resizing die. Slow and steady, then reuse the primers. I’ve done this on numerous occasions. Primers shouldn’t be wasted.

I don't think that I could go against every safety rule in the book..

A 9x19mm is supposed to have a slight taper. Back when we used to hunt the woolly mammoth, we had "small base dies." I bought a set for .223 brass because there is a slight difference with the 5.56 NATO. (I don't know what).

You can still buy them. Found this one on the first google. You should have one anyway. There are going to be lots of bulges in your future.
