    I own one.. It is a TOTALLY machined steel 12 gauge reloader.. Very similar to a STAR reloading press.. It features auto prime/powder/wad/shot holders..and in its day was the very best money could buy.. If my memory is correct.. it sold for about $300 when everything else was less than half.. I've never used mine.. but what a engineering marvel... Very few were ever produced..

    We bought a Stout Rapid Reloader for the Travis AFB, California skeet range in 1963. Anyone could use it and that was the problem. It was set up to load paper Winchesters by feeding an Alcan primer, 22 gr. of red dot, an air wedge, a 3/8 inch feltan bluestreak and 1 1/8 ounce of #9 shot if memory serves. Guys would try using something else and the mechanism was protected with shear pins. When the shear pin supply ran out, some genius substituted bolts. In May of 1965 I dropped the machine off at the manufacturers place in Los Angeles. I swear they had tears in their eyes when they saw what we had done to their machine. Ron Renouf
