These instructions cannot cover the entire
process of reloading metallic cartridges. Proper instruction by someone
who is experienced in this type of reloading will be of great help. If
help of this type is not available, it is suggested that you purchase one of
many reliable handbooks available at nominal cost.
The only part of the Pacific "prO" Tool that
may require adjustment is the priming arm.
1. Adjustment of
This adjustment is made at the factory and
normally will not need readjusting. Should readjustment become
necessary, proceed as follows:
A. Loosen lock screw (OT-28), located
in the end of the primer feed knob (OT-15).
B. Operate lever to move ram to top of
stroke, press primer arm to right as for priming and lower ram so that primer
punch and cup protrude through hole in shell holder head.
C. Thread knob clockwise or
counterclockwise until punch and cup are in exact center of shell holder head
D. Lock knob in place by retightening
knob lock screw.
2. Adjustment of Auto
To obtain proper transfer of primer from
primer feed to primer arm the primer seating punch must be adjusted to the
A. Loosen primer feed lock nut (OT-13)
and guide screw (OT-27) located in the center of the eccentric bushing in the
rear of the frame. Rotate priming arm so that primer punch and cup face
the front of loader, (see Fig. #1).
B. Bend paper clip as shown in Fig. #1
and thread punch up or down as necessary to locate top of cup slightly above
centerline of primer feed stop pin (9-F26). In this position, proper
primer feeding should be accomplished. Remove paper clip and return
primer arm to normal upright position. Retighten guide screw and primer
feed lock nut. NOTE: Do not tighten guide screw to the point where
it bears upon primer arm and prevents it from operating freely.
3. When automatic priming is not
desired, place stop screw in position as in Fig. #2, this will allow manual
priming without further adjustment of primer arm.
CARE OF YOUR DELUXE "prO"
Proper lubrication and keeping your loader
clean and free of grit will insure long, trouble-free use of your reloader.
Before beginning each loading session wipe ram free of accumulated oil and
grit by moving operating lever to place ram in full up position and cleaning
with soft cloth dampened with lighter fluid, Hoppes #9 or other types of
solvents. Relubricate at indicated points (see Fig. #3) with a good
grade of gun oil applied sparingly.
