Default Old reloading tools, some Parker

A junk dealer just gave my dad a box of this stuff. I had a hard time trying to figure out what some of it was. I can't look at it without thinking about old market hunters, or loading some shells on a train ride to a duck club.





From what I have been told this is a load/wad stuffer. The punch part is on a spring and when pressure is applied, the three "fingers" are pushed in to give a 3-point crimp on an all brass shell. Just enough to hold the overshot card in I suppose.




Some hand made primer punches and wad stuffers. The ebony one may be parker as well, as I have seen some ebony parker stuffers like this for sale.


Multi-tools of the day, cappers and decappers. Though, I can't quite figure out how the decapper works coming in from the side. Maybe just a primer pocket cleaner?


Various powder/shot measures. I want to say the one 2nd from left is a parker bros, but can't remember for sure.

The primer pocket cleaner-priming tool works capital for putting large rifle primers in magteck brass. ch

David, wonderful, these items are fun to collect. Other period correct accessories include cleaning rods. BGICO also made cleaning rods and the C M Powers brass cleaning rod is interesting. Powers was a Parker shooter.

I found this while I was cruising the internet. If you like ca. 1900 reloading stuff, I don't think it would get much better.

David, the two squeeze type re/de-cappers were made by Remington. Remington is usually found stamped long-wise on the wooded plunger section, but most often this is hard to see due to usage wear. These are for re/de-capping Berdan type primers. The little spear point actually pierces the primer and then by pulling the shell towards the wood handle, the primer is "pried" out.
