Automatic Reloading

Place an empty shell in Station No. 1, Figure 35. Make certain that the charge bar is locked all the way to the left position by the bar lock, Figure 24 on page 12. Apply a downstroke to the reloader. This will remove the old primer as well as place a new primer in position and resize the brass head of the shell.

When an upstroke is applied to the reloader, the carrier will automatically index. Now place another empty shell in Station No. 1. Repeat the downstroke and upstroke sequence.

When the reloader returns to the top of the stroke, the carrier will automatically index. Insert a wad on the wad ram, and place another empty shell in Station No. 1. Repeat the sequence. Repeat the above procedure each time to obtain a reloaded shell with each complete cycle of the reloader. The sequence shown in Figure 36 through Figure 40 should occur.
