The shell is next inserted in the loading die, the primer entered into the pocket, and the safety socket placed over it, large end down; the primer may then be driven home with the primer-punch and mallet. Considerable loss of primers by premature explosion in this operation has occurred, and a tool is supplied for setting primers by pressure, which is used as follows: The shell is placed in the tool for inserting primers—the primer having been previously just entered in the pocket—and the primer pressed home by means of the lever and screw. The end of the screw is so formed as to insure the primer being below the surface of the head at least o".oo5. It should be slightly lubricated to avoid wear of the projection on the end and abrasion of the primer. The Bridgeport tool may also be used to set the primers of all shells but the "Lowell," which has, intentionally, a primer to fit the pocket tightly, and requires considerable force for its proper insertion. The screw tool will set the "Frankford Arsenal," "Berdan," "Lowell," and "Winchester" primers equally well. The shell is now ready for reloading. It is inserted in the loaded die, the latter into the safety-socket, and the powder-funnel into the mouth of the die. A level measureful of powder is then poured into the shell through the funnel, after which the bullet, or shot, is inserted and driven home with the punch and mallet until the shoulder of the punch touches the end of the die. This insures proper and uniform length of cartridge.
