Your Pacific Multi-Power "C" reloading tool is an improved strengthened design of Pacific's original patented basic "C" type tool.  The heavy duty "O" type frame of high-density cast iron prevents spring or yaw under pressure, and assures perfect die/shell alignment during all reloading operations, including case forming and bullet swaging.

Double steel links connect swinging toggle that multiplies leverage for ease of operation.

The Multi-Power "C" uses Pacific hardened removable shell holder heads, and is designed to use Pacific's patented primer system and universal primer arm as well as 7/8 x 14 size dies, originally pioneered by Pacific.

Pacific also makes a full line or reloading accessories including powder measures, scales, case lubricators, case trimmers and other related items, to aid you in your reloading operation.

With reasonable care, your new Pacific Multi-Power "C" will give you a lifetime of trouble free operation.


1.  Mount your Multi-Power "C" Tool securely to a sturdy bench.  Install shell hoer in the ram and fasten in place with shell holder clip.  Turn shell holder so that opening is toward the side for ease of inserting the case.

2.  If automatic priming is to be used, fill primer tube and place in automatic primer feed.  Make sure primers and primer post and cup are correct size for the cartridge you are loading.  Install size die and adjust according to directions supplied with die set.

3.  Clean and inspect case and lubricate with case lubricator or rag containing size lubricant.  Care should be taken in the lubricating process to insure proper lubrication to prevent a stuck case in the size die.

4.  Place lubricated case into shell holder and move operating lever down, forcing the ram upwards and the case into the die.  This removes old primer and resizes the case (2 die sets).

5.  With ram in full up position, push primer arm into slot of the ram and lower ram so that primer seats in the cartridge case.  Care should be taken after cartridge is primed so that the ram is raised only enough to allow the primer arm to spring back.  If the ram is raised too far, the primer will be pushed out by the decap pin.

6.  Check case length (for cases to be crimped) and trim with Pacific Case Trimmer or file type trim die.  Chamfer inside and outside of case mouth with Pacific Chamfering and Deburring tool, and wipe case free of all lubrication with a clean dry cloth.

7.  Charge case with proper amount of powder using Pacific Deluxe Powder Measure or Pacific Powder Scale.  (Refer to Pacific Reloading Manual or other reliable source to determine proper loads for your cartridge.)

8.  Replace size die with bullet seating die and adjust according to die instruction sheet.  Insert charged case into shel holder and place bullet over mouth of case.  Move operating lever down, raising ram upward and forcing case into die.  If die is properly adjusted, the bullet will be seated and case will be crimped.  (Pacific bullet seating dies can be adjusted to crimp case or seat bullets without crimping during the bullet seating operation.)
