    Reloading tool Identification help

    I purchased the lot listed below and was wondering if anyone can help me with the hand tool that looks like a shotgun shell crimper?

    The link doesn't work for me, but the hand tool in the picture is a shotshell tool for depriming Berdan primed shotshells and re-priming them.

    The rule of thumb with primers that old is: “If they aren’t corrosive, they’re mercuric.” If mercuric, a lot of them will be duds as well.

    Looks like somebody tried to put the handle for a Lyman/Ideal lubrisizer or primer pocket scraper on that boolit mould. What is the caliber, if I may ask?

    There looks to be a bunch of NOS Tomlinson Cleaners there. They were used to scrape the lead out of shotgun barrels before the advent of shot cups. I guess they could be used to scrape the melted plastic from the cups out of the barrels now.

    I think that little aluminum-handled screwdriver is a S&W factory accessory. I got one in an otherwise empty S&W box and was told it is a red-hot Collector’s Item with S&W fans. Haven’t tested this out by trying to sell it, though.

    Is that square thing on the lower left a magazine for a rifle or pistol?

    You certainly got $35 worth of Stuff there, if you can find a use for it.

    Ihe square thing is what I believe is a magazine for a Remington model 742
    Sometimes it takes a second box of boolits to clear my head.

    You are correct in saying that the small screwdriver is a S&W item. They were in every new handgun box that S&W sold for many years. They were included with a small aluminum cleaning rod and a bore swab. I had over a hundred of these at one time that I received at the S&W schools I attended plus from the new service revolvers we got in to issue to our LEO personnel. I still have them in all of my gun boxes. We would drill a hole in the handle and carry one on the keychain. Later David
