Abstract: A manually operable shotgun cartridge loading machine is described for progressively resizing and loading spent shotgun cartridges. The machine includes an upright pair of standards slidably receiving a cartridge supporting turret. Cartridges are held within a plurality of resizing and supporting dies radially and angularly spaced on the turret about a vertical axis. An indexing means is utilized to index the cartridges a set increment about the axis as the turret is manually raised to bring the cartridges into operative engagement with a complementary set of similarly spaced stationary tools. A tool head is fixed at the upper end of the standards for supporting the downwardly projecting tools.

First Claim:
Show all 8 claims
    1. A manually operated reloading machine for resizing and reloading spent shotgun shells, comprising:
  • a base;
  • an upright standard mounted to the base and extending upward therefrom along a vertical axis;
  • a horizontal support plate supported on the support plate for coincident vertical movement therewith and for rotational movement about the vertical axis with respect to the support plate;
  • said annular die carrier having a plurality of upright shell sizing dies angularly spaced thereon about the vertical axis of receiving spent shotgun shells therein;
  • a tool support head having a plurality of depending tools mounted thereto angularly spaced intervals about the vertical axis defining a plurality of work stations;
  • manually operated drive means operatively connected to the horizontal support plate for, during each cycle of operation, moving the shell dies upward to bring the spent shells into working relation with the tools and for moving the shell dies downward to remove the spent shells from working relation with the tools;
  • automatic indexing means responsive to the operation of the drive means for automatically incrementally indexing the die carrier in one angular direction about the vertical axis during each cycle of operation to reposition the cartridge dies for a succeeding cycle of operation; and
  • in which the automatic indexing means includes a reciprocably mounted drive pawl adapted to directly engage a shell sizing die and move the engaged shell sizing die and consequently the die carrier in the one angular
