    Found this today at a flea market in South Carolina. Can't figure out what it's for. It appears to be some kind of punch/hammer?

      There were tools like this in the late 1800's for reloading ammo. The punch would push out the old primer & the flat punch would seat the new primer in the cartridge case. I have my doubts about this one because the punch part is so wedge shaped, but I think this is going in the right direction.
