I believe, around the 1880s, when you would purchase a winchester or sharps, they would ship a lyman 310 tool with it.
they have changed design over the years, but basically performed the same function.
All a person would need is powder,primers,mold,brass and lead, and you could reload anywhere.
Here is a pic from the Lyman website.
My cabin is too small for a dedicated reloading room, so I have a canvas carry bag made up for each caliber.
The 310 works really well for this, just grab the bag and go,reload anywhere, living room, front porch, campsite,motel room,etc.
This bag is setup for the 30-30 and 30 carbine blackhawk.
