    Help ID this primer pocket swager
    I have a primer pocket swaging tool that has no name on it . It is for a .308 win sized base and large primer. I don't think all the parts are there and the part on the lower right I don't think goes with it but it slides up into the bottom part that screws into the press. It also slides right out too and falls on the floor. There seems to be something missing that would tie the ram to the swager . Any ideas of what this should consist of. Thanks

    it works with just the punch and the smaller piece (upper left). I am not sure what the larger threaded piece was for. I played with it earlier and the swager punch fits into a 308 shellholder like in the link you sent. I guess I will use the short version and quit wondering what the lower section was for.
