RCBS® Base Plate-3
10"L x 6"W x 1"H.
This is a video about the rcbs accessory. Base plate number two i didn't find a lot of stuff online regarding how the. Base place looks so this is what the box. Comes in basic box inside which you have. Is the actual plate and instructions and. All the tools necessary to install the. Plate the tools that come with it are. Four wooden screws and an assortment of. Other screws that you can use for adding. Items onto the base plate base play itself it's just a metal piece has. Various holes in it so basically you're. Going to put the four wooden screws on their bolt it down to your bench and. Then the various letters here like c. Or d you'll use to put in your press. So your powder drop or other items like that now what you see on this side here. Is the base plate with my press and the. Powder drop and notice here's the. Screws with the washer for the pot of. The press and right next to it i had it. Uh just edit this one on here just so. You can see that you could put both of them on there it's missing the other screw here but there's the first screw. So they both will fit the press and your. Powder drops the only thing is if you. Have them both like that if your press. Is probably going to get in the way of when you're doing your your. Charging or your shells so it's probably. Best to take two of these and just use one for the press and one for the powder. Drop it's pretty easy to take off you. Just unscrew the bolts and then this. This will move out of the way but this is just a quick review of the rcbs. Accessory baseplate.

Lee Hand Press Kit
RCBS® Rock Chucker Supreme Master Reloading Kit
Welcome back youtube today we're going. To be talking about the rcbs rock. Chapter supreme single stage reloading press extremely nice setup very good. Value for the money it's very simple and. Straightforward not a lot of fancy features but for forming cases and things of that nature is a great press. Okay I'm going to show you some of the basic features of it but in a nutshell. You've got a nice sturdy rim here and. The handle is you know got a real nice. Profile to it good large size and a lot. Of mass the press itself the body of the. Press is extremely heavy and strong and. I believe it's a investment-grade iron casting or cast iron you've got just. Under four inches of clearance and then for the die choices you can use standard. Seven eighths a fourteen thread pitch dies pretty much your industry standard. Or you can remove this bushing that's in. Here and you can use the larger dies if. You want to reload like 577 450 martini-henry 50 bmg and so forth the 50. Bmg may not have white enough clearance. With this space in here but it should. Clear because on the box they show a got 1150 on it so the priming arm is set up. In a simple manner similar to the way. You expect on any single stage press it. Comes with both large and small priming. Cups that of course are easy to change out on your own this device right here. Catches all of you spent primers quiet. Reliably the arm of the press can be. Changed over to either left or right-handed as you may prefer this nut. Right here is an indexing nut for tightening out the arm of the press that's really about all there is to it's a really solid unit I'm going to prime some cases on it for you and load up some ammo. I've already been forming some of the 7/7 japanese arisaka ammunition on it or. Forming cases and it does very well with. Forming cases in general and it really. Made short work of that a conversion which is basically just simple 3006. Conversion but it definitely makes a short work of that conversion process it. Looks good very effortless priming operations on. This thing the actual amount of movement. And mechanical advantage that you get with the arm and everything and the. Leverage you get is outstanding i mean you can feel the primer seat firmly oh. Yeah it looks fun i don't know how many. Of you use separate priming tools for. Doing your brass I've always like to prime off the press just because i do. Prefer the feel that you get priming off. Of the press and that's just my. Preference but I've always preferred you. No priming on the press it takes a little longer but i just like the. Leverage you get all right I'm going to. Seat a couple of bullets on this thing. Remove the primer arm out of the way which is nice about this press just flip. It out of the way. Loading 174 green serum match kings from. Arasaka will try them out sunday very. Smooth ram a lot of good leverage. Available i mean it just feels right you. Now you can feel whatever things doing what's going on it's about. All this video was meant to be was just to show this press in action because it. Really is a nice piece of machinery it's made well i mean it's. Just solid and that's the bottom line they're not especially cheap but you do. Get what you pay for to a degree. I like this press too because it's got a. Real noticeable amount of over travel. When you set the press to bump you can definitely tell when it over cams right. There i mean it just does so. Well it's a great press. I'm just basically trying to show some of the linkage working from different angles just in case any viewer curious. As to how it all fell together i mean. This press i mean it just practically runs itself it's just a great setup well. Hopefully this video is pretty much summed this press-up i mean not to beat. A dead horse but that's about all there is to it's a great simple rig that. Anybody can use and if you got some. Monster case forming to undergo it's. Great for that also if I'm not mistaken. I believe our cbs makes a specially. Designed turret that actually screws. Into this press I'll have to do some further research on that but there is a lot of potential for upgrades as far as i know it's a great price either for. Entry-level or for an experienced hand loader you can't go wrong the rock checkered supreme.
Lee Replacement Turrets
RCBS® Replacement Six-Station Turret Head
Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Kit
It’s the reloading press that pioneered quick die changeovers. The Lock-N-Load® bushing system allows for super-fast bushing release, letting you change dies and set up quickly. Change the dies, adjust, tighten the lock ring and you’re ready. Once dies are set for a specific load, this system lets you remove and reinstall dies in seconds. An overbuilt, professional-grade, cast-aluminum frame and linkage ensure durability and lasting service. Features include a Primer Catcher and three Lock-N-Load Die Bushings. The large, easy-grip, ball-style handle is long for increased leverage while reducing effort. The Power-Pac linkage and solid-steel arms multiply leverage applied to make sizing large cases easier. Stability and rigidity are assured by the high-strength alloy frame, and its unique angle gives you outstanding visibility and easy access to the cartridge in the press. An integrated Positive Priming System™ ejects spent primers at the top of the stroke, picks up a new primer and self-aligns to feed and insert the primer at the bottom of the stroke where leverage is optimal. The self-aligning primer arm also allows for easy manual insertion of primers without having to raise the handle. This makes priming easier than ram prime units and better than old-style priming arms. Dies and shell holder not included.
Want to start loading your own high-quality, accurate handloads but intimidated by all the equipment you’ll need to buy? This kit has everything you need to start making your own cartridges in one convenient package. You’ll receive a Lock-N-Load Classic single-stage Reloading Press(described above), a Lock-N-Load Powder Measure, a precise 1,500-grain Digital Scale, three Lock-N-Load Die Bushings (dies not included), a Primer Catcher, a Positive Priming System, a Handheld Priming Tool with additional primer tray, a universal Reloading Block, a Chamberring and Deburring tool, a Powder Trickler, Powder Funnel, One Shot™ Case Lube and the Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading. The only things you’ll need to get started are the dies, shell holders and cartridge components.
Hey what's up everybody. Brando mcwillie here doing another reloading video seems that people have. Been really enjoying those so i continue. To make a little bit more first and foremost today the carry weapon is the. Kel-tec p38 ii alright kind of like to. Show people they haven't seen my stuff before i kind of like to show the different weapons that i carry on a daily basis because i think it's kind of cool to see if people that do the. Reviews actually carry the stuff they're reviewing so i usually do and i carry a. Variety it just depends on what I'm wearing that day and so forth but i. Thought ways thought that was kind of cool so today i wanted to talk about the. Actual reloader itself I've done a couple of videos on how to reload but i. Never actually went into detail about the my actual press and i kind of wanted. To show that today and kind of show what it came with and what yet so I'm going. To take the camera off the tripod so i can move in a little bit closer and just start taking a look at the press itself. Now show you the box that it comes in here I'm not going to take it out but this is the hardy lock and load classic loader it is not to kit okay i didn't buy the. Kit i bought the actual reloader by itself and it actually comes with the. Loader itself and you actually have to. Take the handle and actually adjust that. And put that on that's not together but everything else is put together for you so you don't have to do any assembly and. If my memory serves me correct i did get. Three of the lock and load die bushings. That came with the loader as well okay. So i didn't have to go out and have that expense for that first time a. Couple of other things that it comes with is the tray that is used to hold. The spent primers okay and that basically just locks on here okay it. Also comes in with a primer tool or primer feeder and two primer i guess you. Call them size sizes or something like that i don't know what you call it but basically i have it set up now for the small primer size primer and this. The one that you would use for the large primers and basically it just unscrews in screws in here but the press itself. Does not come with any mounting hardware i purchased that myself and basically as. You can see here i have like just a basic bench that i had built and it just. Bolts directly on to that bench with some wood screws or wood bolts basically. And used a large washer to hold that in. Place looking at it from this side not. Much difference here you have more access to the bolt but it does a pretty good job and one thing that i recommend is as you load make sure you have a. Quality dent setup as even this one. Which is set up pretty good i think still wobbles a little bit as i pull. That lever arm down but that's not a big deal it still works fine for me the primer. Feeder basically if you can see and. There is a little notch and this feeds. Directly under there and so when i go to. Raise the or lower the ram there the. Primer will be pushed into the casing. Okay so kind of cool so this is what you. Get with it I'm pretty pleased with it. Now if you've seen my other videos you know that i like them a lot and i kind of give you an example of how the lock and load system works and I'll do that with some nine-millimeter dies I'm going. To put this back into the tripod so i can work there so basically here are. Some poor nate'd eyes these are 9 millimeters and if you look at the die. Set the block and load bushings are. Already set so i basically have a set of bushings for each one of my dies kind of. Expensive that's the downfall but it makes it easier for me to load my. Ammunition so i like it so I'm not worried too much about it but basically in order to get that to work is. Basically is basically dropped that in and twist and. It's locked in place and i don't have to worry about screwing it down and making adjustments and so forth now i know that. With a traditional set of dies you can. You know have your retaining not here. Locked into place so once you get it. Flush with the press you don't have to worry about it anymore but still to me this is just so much easier and i just like the way that i. Have it set up so no complaints there at all very easy if you don't want to go. Through the expense of ordering the expensive die bushings you can simply. Just put one in there and then leave it locked in place and every time you want to change out a set of dies you can just unscrew it just like you would in a traditional press so you have the option to do both which i think is kind of nice. Another thing that i am probably i say. That I'm going to get but i haven't yet is there's a tool here that you can. Actually feed primers down into this. Area and it would come straight down and feed new primers here so every time i raise the ram and lower the ram the new. Primer will be fed in i just haven't done that yet there's a spot here for it but i just haven't done it all in all. I'm haven't had any problems with this press at all the only thing that i have had happened this is probably just out of. Wear in use is this pin sometimes will. Pop out and i just have to push it back. In with my hand it's just a retaining pin it's not a big deal I've never even greased this sucker up you can see that it does get dirty you kind of do that when my camera is not that good does get turi dirty dukes working with us spent primers and the dirty brass and all that kind of stuff but it's been great i. Haven't had any hiccups with it at all no problems with it and it was a bit of. Press that I'd highly suggest you know it made it turned me on to other hornady stuff if you look i have a lot of. Hornady dies a lot of horny equipment in. My reloading get up and ability kind of. Happened of this press you know i was going to. Get this press or the rcbs rock crusher i found out that the rcbs rock crusher. Was cast in china and for some reason. That just did not do it for me so i. Decided to get the hornady no one knowing that it was made 100% in the states so that was a big thing for me as. Well so anyway a basic video showing you. The press for those of you who are looking to get one you know i suggested i like it my next. Press would probably be the hornady auto progressive press and I've been loading. A lot of handguns ammunition and i would. Like to have the ability to load a little bit faster now i can load about. 50 rounds in about 45 minutes on this press right here and i can shoot 50 rounds in about 2 seconds so you do the math there so an auto progressive press would be nice, but they're really expensive and i want to make sure that i like this before i started investing a lot of money into reloading i. Found out that i do enjoy it's not something i do every day but it's something that i do maybe once or twice. A month maybe look more net maybe like. More like once a week that i come out here fiddle with something okay and then i get to the point where I'm low on ammo that i start making more so i don't i enjoy it especially during hunting season i like doing rifle rounds that sort of thing too I'm kind of into the ballistic stuff so if you have any questions please comment let me know what you think and you know if you like my videos please subscribe I've got some more gun videos coming up and i hope you guys enjoy those as well you guys take care bye.
Lee Pro 1000 Progressive Press
Calibers: .38 Special/.357 Magnum, 9mm Luger, 40 Smith & Wesson, 44 Special/.44 Magnum, .45 ACP, .45 Long Colt®, .223 (includes rifle charging die. Not available in carbide.)
Started a new hobby bullet reloading ice. Too but i started shooting a lot more. Just because i picked up my interest a. Little bit some reason i don't know why but i shot a little bit years ago and. Then ice piqued my interest again i have. No idea why but I'd enjoy it just shooting i don't carry but anyhow this. Is a video just on this lead 1000 press. Which I've seen quite a few videos of. Bottom and most guys do not like them. Well i wouldn't say most I'd say half-and-half 50% don't like them 50 cents. Like him and i like it but i like to. Tinker with mechanical things so to me. Would it oh he's operating operates good and it. Operates most of the time and it's very it's me usually it does something wrong. Either i don't follow through with the press or something screws it up but it doesn't take all it takes about a minute to get it going again and you can let up 50 shells bullets or let me get this. Right to be politically correct i guess. Rounds i guess it would be called 50. Rounds i probably only loaded maybe 400. Rounds at that just to see if i could do. It you know and see if i liked it and i do like it i picked it up for 240 bucks. But that wasn't just the press was like 180 now these just round figures, but they're close and then i got. Also the scale when i picked it up hornady scale which i think he said it. Was like a $30.00 scale $29 or something. And i got some primers one box primers. There's couple boxes there and i also got bollocks i think two packs a full 200. Poets i think a hundred twenty-five. Nine-millimeter by the way 125 grain and. I think i don't know 15 grain i don't. No 145 on her but that don't matter they're just about $1 more per hundred. Between the two different grains the potter was $22 so like i say everything. Come — it was under 250 250 bucks and. That was enough to get started where the. Guy who sold me this thing he had hornet. Be there we're gonna be loader we're not. Going to be I'm sorry um reading i think. Reading loader you know i wouldn't have. Walked out of there with the loader just. A loader you know just the operating thing as what's out there dies and goes out to powder measure. Without all that so it to me this is the. Way to go if you like to tinker if you. Want something that's gonna work smooth right out of the box which this did sort. As soon as i set it up it worked to find but i needed to know what i was doing it. Had to read the directions if you're not. Mechanically inclined I'd stay completely away from reloading completely but i haven't used any other. Re loaders so and i can't really say that. I guess that's a broad statement. But anyhow if you're looking at one and. You like to tinker with your car or anything else and you do like shooting its worth getting one right.
Hornady® Classic Press Automatic Primer Feed
Frankford Arsenal® M-Press™ Coaxial Reloading Press
Lee Precision Reloader Press
Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Reloading Press
Note: The automatic primer feed is not included.
The hornady lock and load auto progressive press or ap for short it's a. Fully functional five station progressive press that gives you one loaded round with each pull of the handle today we're going to go through step by step how to set it up so stay. Tuned let's get started when you get your horn. Indy lock and load comes in this nice big box fully packed from the factory impervious to shippers abuse and what. You want to do is slide off the cover get it right and start taking out the. Goodies there's a lot of packing in here. Take your time try not to lose anything. Here's the actual press and it's a. Beauty along with that you have some. Other goodies in here there's our powder. Measure and priming tools here's some. Powder measure dye our lock and load. Bushings there and a bracket for our bin. There's our ammo bin and it has a drum. For our powder measure inside yes when I'm setting one of these up i do read the manual it's essential so. Now that we got everything out we can get started the first thing we have to do is bolt the press to the bench and to. Do that I'm gonna have to drill some new holes in this bench. Okay now that we got the holes drilled we can go ahead and mount dress up and. For this hornady recommends five. Sixteenth inch bolts with a washer on. Then like I've got here the length will vary depending on how thick your bench top is I'm using four inch bolts here. They seem to do the trick for me and get. A bolt in there tighten them up as you. Normally would like any other tool of ice or something you tighten down doesn't have to be super tight you just don't want this thing moving around and there we go that's plenty tight this thing is solid as a rock you can pick the bench up with it if i could pick the bench up alright. Now we've got to install our handles get that on there so now we want to secure. The handle by tightening a slop net with a crescent wrench hand the basic press. Is mounted and ready to go so let's move on to the next step which is mounting the shell plate and before. We do that heatedly wants a little bit. Of grease on the base of the press here there're little indentations here for the. Ball detent, so we're going to put a little grease in those and that'll make. The thing ride a lot smoother you want to take this keyed area right here and. Make sure it fits the corresponding stud. On the press nice and easy. At that point it's just a matter of. Putting the screw in place it doesn't. Have to be super snug and i lift up on. The handle creates a little friction on it lift it up. Look there we've got a ratcheting press it is working hornady sets these up at. The factory to ratchet properly if you. Find that it is not coming all the way around to each station you need to. Consult your manual to find out how to retirement or call it one of the tech they can walk you through it if they have to so the next thing we want to do. Is to put the shell retainer spring and. This is a spring right here it's a nice coil loop around the shell plate. And it goes in place pretty easily but. You have to cycle the press a couple times to get it to drop in and there it. Goes now it's running in its groove here and it'll hold the shells in there. Stations all the way around at each station check and make sure everything's. Advancing properly each time you raise. The ram it should be coming up on each. Station on each die station here there should be a shell holder opposite it this one is working properly horn d sets these up at the factory and. If it's not indexing properly there are. Instructions in your manual on how to fix that or you can call workaday's tech support they can walk you through it also next we want to install the priming mechanism now this came equipped ready to go for large primers, and we're loading 45 acp, but we've decided to take. It apart so you could watch how it's put together first thing to do is take the. Priming ram here and hook it up to this. Little spring right here which is hard to reach their district up this puts the. Tension on your priming. And then we place the cover on top that. Retains it. Now before you install yours be sure those parts are clean and oil-free no. Debris no rough edges just double-check. It makes sure the primers have a nice easy path to follow. Because progressive one of the most. Important things you can do is make sure that your primers flow properly okay as. You see it moves back and forth there it gets cam to back and it goes forward. Lines up here and you've got a primer in place once there's one to feed so now. That we have that in place we can screw the primer shield in place and that's. Very easy that just screws on those outer threads down there next we want to. Put the inner tube in and there are two. Of these so make sure the one you get. Corresponds to the primers you want to use to see one's got a large hole one's got a small hole we're going to use large primers, so we'll go with this one. There's a slight rebate here and you. Want to put that down so it'll go into. Its recess inside there and nest properly don't go once you have that in. Place this little guide goes on top that. Centers everything up so now when you go. To feed primers from one of these. Centers it up for you pull the pin primers fall down you're fully charged so that's the priming. Setup everything's running smoothly so. Far so good next we take our lock and. Load powder measure and being careful. Not to lose any of these levers or anything on the way we're going to put it into the die, and we're going to take. The activation arm slip it over its locking not here tighten that in place. Make sure it's moving freely now this. Device is called the powder stop or a powder measure stop excuse me and what. This does is limits the travel this powder measure so when your case hits the top of the die and hits that expansion point all the pressure is going to be borne by this rather than your mechanism and your powder measure pretty good idea it's all taken up here. All the stress so you don't have to worry, so we'll put this in place over. The two spring points, and we'll put our spring first on the top then on the. Bottom make sure we have good positive. Return pressure that way when the case backs out this comes down gets another. Load of powder you don't want your powder measure to jam up now we get to. Test it takes a case loading station one. Index it over station — there goes out. Powder measure now we're not feeling a. Lot of resistance at the end and this isn't bottoming out, so we're going to need a little more adjustment here I'm going to tweak that up. There's a little bit let's try a bullet in there just a little more just need a. Little more there. Let's see what it looks like. They're bullet stays in the case it's. Gonna stay oriented for the next seating step, so we'll call that good pablor. Measures ready to go we can lock down our adjustments and proceed now that. We've got the powder measure installed we can install the hornady powder cop and what this does is gives you a visual verification of the powder level in the. Case it'll show you if the case is properly charged it will also show you if there's a double charge in there which can be disastrous so this is a great idea when you're loading on a progressive now to install it again we. Want to put our lock and load bushing on their put it into the press it'll be on. Station three right next to your powder. Measure takes a prime case run it through. One. Charge it with powder comes over now the. Powder calm and you can see the white. O-ring just shows above here we can. Adjust this up just slightly so it with a proper powder charge and I've weighed this already so i know I'm throwing the proper charge it comes up about flush that way every time you put the handle. Down your eyeball will fall on this. While ring and see that it's at the right level so let's take the same case. Leave the powder in it and run it through and give it a double charge and see what it looks like there's the. Second charge and there the o ring comes. Up twice as far now it's not a huge difference but now there's a gap between the die and the o ring so your eye should pick that up instantly it's right under your nose it's out their right in front of you on purpose so when you see that you know you've got a double charge case next. We're going to install the bullets eating die went ahead and installed the. Sizer die in station one that's pretty easy nothing to figure out there the. Cedar die takes a little bit of finagling depending on what unit you. Have now we're using the horn of the die here which crimps and seats the bullet. To proper depth in one motion it's got two adjustment rings for the bullet depth and for the crimp I've got a bushing on it, so we're going to lock and load that in place and what we'll do is. Take an empty case, and we'll just run it through without powder or without primer. We're just making a dummy test case I've. Looked in the horn of the manual here our overall length is one point two. Thirty one inch two hundred thirty thousand for the 230 grain xtp bullet. We're going to load, so we'll go up the. Station one size it normally we would. Prime right here charge with powder. Next station is the powder cop nothing. Happening because we have no powder station for take an x t p bullet. Goes up seats the bullet crimps there it. Is next station if you wanted to crimp. Separately there's still one open station so if you want to add a taper crimp die to that you could and just sat with this one some people like to do that especially with cast bullets where you might shave a little red off them but this particular unit works fine just as is so you'd go up to the next. Station and then it would eject the. Shell and you're done and from then on. Each pull the handle will give you one. Loaded round that's what the aap is all about okay with the press all set up and. Our test rounds looking good we're ready to start loading ammo you have any questions on how to use this or set it up give us call in the tech line we'll be glad to help you out thanks for watching see you next time. You.
Hornady® Automatic Case Feeder
You. If folks just here with a quick tip for. The for those of you with the workaday lock and load and the case feeder if. You're like me you love the case feeder but can occasionally be frustrating with. Having various issues you know feeding. The cases either when the plate comes up. And the shell drops onto the shell plate. You know if you don't have this push rod. And the feed tube and just adjust. Perfectly you sometimes know the case drops a little too early or a little too late and the result of that is that it. Will land on bounce off and you know. Kind of slow you down so I've seen a couple different people, and they will. Attach a small piece of tape cardboard. Or something right here to help kind of. Catch the case as it comes down out of. The drop tube i didn't really like that. Because as the next case came down if. For instance, it was upside down or whatever instead of tape would get. Start getting bent just kind of got in the way so what i found to be the. The Easiest solution is simply taken a piece of index card this is a actually a piece. Of business card that you would print at. Home roll it up in a tube the exact. Diameter of this piece of tape and a. Piece of cardboard here put it over this over the drop tube you can see i put a. Little notch in here to cut it out for where the vblock feeds up and it feeds. Up just in there and you just slide it. Up i don't have it attached nothing's holding that on other than friction and it will stay there had it on for thousands of rounds and when the cases come down, and they. Drop down into the tube you can see that it is now entirely captured by this. Magus extended tube and pretty much salt. Any of the issues that i had with the. Cases dropping off of the shell plate so. That was very convenient the other mice. Think about this solution is that one of. The things that really bothered me with this whole feed mechanism is the time. That it takes to switch this drop tube out when changing from a smaller case. Like a nine millimeter to a larger case like 45 or maybe a rimmed case like. These 357 that won't fit into the three. Four seven so you fit in there but a forty-five case you know won't fit into. This to the smaller drop tube so you get. To work really reliably you know you have to keep swapping that out but with this i never have to change this too bad i just leave a large tube in all the time which means that i don't have to take this pivot body out which as you. Now you know in order to get this dropped tooth out you know you have to. Take this pivot body out which means. Undoing this screw at the top here which is kind of pain you have to pull this whole thing out put it back on but with this a simple little piece of rolled-up. Index card sit right on their like that. Just we've large tube on all the time and it solves any bouncing case issues. That I've had so now the only thing that i have to swap out is the inside little. Sizing piece which you don't need to. Remove this for you don't even need to take that tube out you know just drop that in when you're using a small case take it out when you're using a large case and you're off to the races so i. Hope that helps it's all the 15 seconds and it works. Great.

Hey guys donald bullet for freedom here because i share my hip trained kathy who hangs out on my wall from Dylan precision anyways a lot of you guys that. Have before today ep whether it's the full ammo plant set up don't forget your info wars.com now. We're in the reloading room again i wanted to share with you guys I've got the second set the second press said excuse me because I've got a whole kind. Of breath that I've got to go through and one thing that i was struggling with. Was the primer pockets and so i ended up. Going and getting the lock and load ap. Primer because i figured the rotary. Press and the kind of obvious auto. Indexing we all know at the hornet aap is but i thought about the villain the. One at a time one at a time and i ended. Up going with this simply because i go. Through a lot of 223 brass a lana brown. So what i figured out is if you went. Down to your hardware store to move up here with my osmo you can see that i. Took my exit die attach the hose goes. All the way down. To the bucket so I've done about 800. Rounds maybe an omen rattle over a thousand rounds in the last half hour or 45 minutes but i just wanted to get show you this is where you drop your prime. Your your brass in so that you can. Swage it as it's coming up it's going to. Sit on here you and you move it forward. So you can see as it rotates and does. Its thing normally you drop the dye in here the. Brats in here goes this way and it's wages and then the next one has little rubber fingers that push everything back. Up so instead of dropping one in. Reaching and putting it somewhere else i just attach the hose and it goes down. Right into my bucket and there you have. It so nice clean deep rhymes now I'm. Going to swage it and then get it set up on the ammo plant with the bullock. Beater and get this 223 loaded so thanks. For watching and if you like click subscribe till your family friends remember that lid causes cancer in the state of california so be careful out there guys appreciate your watching.
Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Auto Progressive Press EZ Feed Pistol Bullet Feeder
Hello youtube re loaders thanks for. Watching hornet loader here my standard. Disclaimer i am not an employee of quantity manufacturing nor do i have any interest financially or otherwise miss a low quantity products I've been reloading for almost 35 years and for the last 20 years I've been using hornady equipment almost exclusively hence the name orange loader. The winery logo is a registered trademark of hardy manufacturing grand. Island nebraska welcome to part three of. My four part series on hornady lock and load ap press today's video will be. Looking at the bullet feeders available. From hornady unlike the case feeder the. Bullet feeders will work with any manufacturer's press quantity has both. The rifle feeder that you see here as well. A pistol bullet feeder which is almost. Identical with some changes which will we'll talk about and you can also use. Bullet tubes so let's take a look at the. Rifle bullet feeder first and then we'll. Swap over to the pistol bullet theater and continue our reloading session for. 45 auto okay this is the rifle bullet. Hopper i brought it down onto my. Workbench so you can see how it operates a little easier essentially it has this. Ring around the outside which is going. To rotate it has grooves in the ring so. That it will pick up a bullet from the. Bottom here and transport it up the ring. Until it gets up to the bullet tube and. The idea here is that it's going to collate the bullets and put them in the. Proper orientation in other words the bullet tip is up the bullet base is down and drop them into the bullet tube which. Will then go down to the bullet feeder. Die talk about that in just a minute now we. Have this plate here that's adjustable up and down the idea being is you want. To adjust it so that a bullet in the. Proper orientation in other words with the base down will be held up by the. Plate so it doesn't the bullet doesn't fall back down into the pile the bullets. Down at the bottom if the bullet is upside down in other words the base is up see if you can see that there what. Will happen then is the plate doesn't come up high enough to catch the tip of. The bullet so the bullet will simply slip down and fall into the batch of. Bullets at the bottom here won't make it to the bullet tube so that's how it how. It makes sure that only bullets and the. Proper orientation go into the bullet tube now as a safeguard to we have a. Couple of wiper springs these springs. Here are adjustable so that you can. Adjust them in or out and up and down and the idea being that a bullet that is. In the proper orientation the tip of. The bullet will pass under the spring so. That you know it's able to pass freely but if the bullet gets to this point and. It's upside-down the fatter part of the. Bullet though the shank of the bullet will hit the wiper spring and be knocked. Back down with the rest of the bullets in the bottom of the tub here okay so. Let me go ahead and turn it on you can. See how it operates. One day down here at the bottom there's. One opinion upside down. Right now under falling here's one on the right orientation that makes it all the way to the tube and goes right up to. The right into the bullet. I don't believe the capabilities will. Fill up and you cut out for it we'll. Talk about in a minute. Okay you get the idea. I will collate the bullets into these little steps on the ramp here it'll wipe. Away any bullets that are in the wrong orientation bullets in the wrong. Orientation will fall off here kind of. Secondary safeguard before it gets to the bullet tube so only bullets that are. In the proper orientation with the base down the tip up will enter the bullet. Tube the bullet tube itself is a basically a spring tube and that will. Run down to the automatic cutoff device. On the bottom which we'll talk about in just a second now before we move on i. Just wanted to show you the pistol. Bullet hopper it works exactly the same. Was just a couple of differences on the. The grooves in the outer ring here are. Much larger to pick up the larger. Caliber pistol bullets also the bullet. Tube is much wider too obviously to pick. Up the larger caliber pistol bullets now to change calibers for the pistol. All you have to do is change the bullet tube this is the thick or the wide. Bullet tube there's also a thin bullet tube for some of the smaller calibers like nine-millimeter this one I'll work. With 45 and 40 calibers and so on now. It's so it's easy enough to change over. From large caliber to smaller caliber. With the pistol both bullet feeder it's. A little different with the rifle bullet feeder with the rifle bullet feeder when. You buy it's set up for 223 if you. Want to use it with 30 calibers you need. To buy the 30 caliber conversion kit now. The conversion kit comes with a. Different rotor it has larger steps on. It for the larger caliber bullet has a larger bullet tube. That you need to install also has a. Larger cutoff device and it also comes. With the 30 caliber bullet feeder and. Seeding die so as you can see changing. Over from 223 to 30 calibers with the. Rifle bullet feeders a little more involved than with the pistol theater. With special feeder i just need to change the bullet tube and die and I'm. I'm good to go. Ok I've put the case of the bullet. Hopper for the rifle bullet feeder back on the mounting arm and i just want to. Mention one thing about this mounting arm i mean by the way you can see it a. Little better the mounting arm itself. Was meant to be actually installed on. The surface of your workbench however since i have my press on what in. Line fabrication calls their ultra mount it's about 9 or 10 inches above the surface of the workbench so in line. Fabrication makes a bar here a mounting. Bar for the bullet feeder that attaches. To the top of the ultra mount so it's. It's a way to get the bottom of the mounting bar for the bullet feeder even. With the bottom of the press so it sits. At the right height now this arm itself. The one that comes with the bullet feeder is adjustable you can see the. Bolts here and the slide here where you. Can adjust the whole assembly up and down the pistol bullet feeder comes with. A an arm it's basically the same. Size arm the difference is the arm for. The bullet feeder is not adjustable it's just one big piece. So if you have both the pistol feeder and the rifle bullet theater you'll want. To use the arm from the rifle bullet. Feeder the angle of the top here is. Exactly the same on both and you can adjust the height so when you're using. The pistol bullet feeder you can adjust. The height to be the same as the original arm for the pistol bullet. Feeder or you can adjust it up a little bit for the rifle fear now we. Talked about how the bullet hopper. Collates the bullets and drops them down. Into the tube here well the tube comes. Down and it goes through this cutoff. Device there's a switch inside here once. The bullets load the tube all the way up. To this point here it'll trip that. Switch which will turn the bullet. Hopper off the motor and the bullet hopper okay and down here we have the. Die assembly for the rifle bullet feeder. Now it's a fairly complex die it's all. Kind of one piece we have the actual die. Here the seeder die and then we have the. Bullet feeder extension or attachment on. The die at the top of the extension is. The transverse blocks what they will do. Is when a case is fed into the die this. Block will turn and drop a single bullet. Down into the feeder extension and drop. That into the die itself and then as. But as the ram goes up the bullet. Will be seated in the case and you have your seating adjustment up here at the. Top so let's let me go ahead and show. You how the feeder works, and then we'll take apart this. I died here and I'll show you how this internal workings work in this die so. I'm going to turn the case or the bullet to you're on the first bullet is arrived. Down here at the transfer blocks and the. Tube is filled up to this point here. Where the switch is and has turned the. Bullet feeder off then as a case comes. Up into the die this transfer block will. Pop over and drop a single bullet into. The bullet feeder extension here on the. Die and then another bullet will drop through and you probably heard the bullet feeder hopper turn on again when. This bullet went down I'll do that against you can you know just listen for the bullet feeder hopper to a motor to. Turn on so it makes sure that this part. Of the bullet tube is always full of. Bullets ready to be dropped. Into the die and seated into the case. Okay let's take a closer look at this. Bullet peter died the on the left here. You see the bullet feeder extension to. The die at the top we have the adapter that the bullet tube comes down into just below that we have the transfer. Block that will transfer one bullet at a time into the bullet feeder extension. And then that'll feed the bullet into. The die on the left here which we'll see. Today in the case and as the case goes. Up it'll seat the bullet into the case. And this is the adjustment up here on the tops you can adjust the depth of the. Bullet basically all you do is you. To take it apart you loosen the lock. Knob here and the two pieces come apart. Now the bullet extension here has a. Little ramp on it with a spring and this. Arm at the top of the ramp when they bullet put the spring back in when the. Cases comes into the die here it pushes. This up which then activates the. Transfer box you see how the transfer. Block moves there then the transfer. Block will drop a bullet down into the. Bullet feeder and hit this ramp and that. Ramp will drop the bullet down over into. The cedar die now in the cedar die there. The seeding stem in here is actually. Loose it kind of swings back and forth. So as the bullet comes down it will swing back away from the bullet so the. Bullet can get down into the case and. Then as it clears the seeding stem the. Seeding stem comes back to center and then as the case with the bullet now in. In the neck comes up it pushes the. Seedings down then pushes the bullet down into the case and let's teach the. Bullet so it's its unlike any other. Kind of die you probably dealt with before because of the grant and the. Movable seating stem typically they're. Not movable they sit in one. Position put it back together. I put the spring back on the rod at the. Top of the ramp slide the ramp in. Through the bottom. Then i take the die made it with the. Bullet feeder extension bring this down. And lock it all back together okay so. That's really all there is to the. The die assembly it's basically designed. To drop a single bullet in to the feeder. Extension hit that ramp the ramp will. Cause the bullet to come down into the die and then as the case goes up it. Comes in contact with the seeding stem and seats the bullet so it feeds the. Bullet and seats the bullet all in one step in one die on the pistol cedar. Which we'll see here in just a few minutes the bullet will drop down into. The case in one state you know on one. Station on the press and then it'll move. To the next station where it'll actually be seated it's a two-step process with. The rifle bullet feeder it's a one-step process, and we'll see the rifle bullet the feeder in action in another video. Come that's coming up on loading rifle. Bullets with yellow nail press and also we'll see it in my loading for accuracy. Video series so you won't see it in this. In this particular series we're going to. Use the pistol bullet theater because we've been using 45 autos for our. Four part series for the lock and load press but i will add another. Peace to that another part to the series. So you can see this guy in action. Okay I've reinstalled the pistol bullet. Feeder and now as i mentioned before the. Bullet hopper works pretty much the same. As the rifle hopper the big differences are external one obviously the. Tube here is much wider than its. Accommodate the larger caliber pistol. Bullets it's got a little hanger here to. Hold the tube up so that it doesn't drop. Down and it's able to feed the bullets properly and the bullet feeder die is a. Little different it's not it doesn't have the extension on the side the both. Peter die only feeds a bullet it doesn't. Seat the bolt as well you'll notice I've moved the cedar die over to station five. And the bullet feeder die is in station. For so we can continue our. Reloading process with the 45 auto with. The 45 auto feeder die installed now you. Need a the appropriate feeder diet for each caliber this one's for 45 calibers. They also have a nine caliber or a nine millimeter and a 40 caliber. Feeder diet this is the 45 caliber. Feeder diets so let's continue our. Reloading process from here one of the difference i did want to mention here the pistol bullet fear does not have a. Cutout switch so when the tube is full. It will keep on going you have to. Manually turn it off when the tube is. Full now when you get really cranking. Along the bullet theater your boats will. Be dropping out of the feeder fast and faster than they go into the feeder so it'll kind of even out you won't need. The cut off but i just wanted to. Mention that the bullet feeder for pistols does not have a cutoff switch. Okay let's continue our 45 caliber. Reloading session with the bullet feeder. Die installed. Pick up the case size and you cry. That case well another comes down to the. Skull plate prime it and as our show. Place fills up here I'm just going to make sure I've got the right powder charge i detected several times now but i want. To just make sure we've got five point. Six grains we're using unique powder from alliant still dropping five point. Six so we're right on track. Powder cop looks good I'm going through. The process now here's where things change a little bit with the bullet feeder notice this case has no bullet in it goes into the bullet theater and. Comes down with a bullet insert it into. The neck of the case and then as it. Comes around to station five this case. Will get a bullet this case will have this peter. Well basically on able to reload without. Having to put a new cake casing the show. Play without happy to add a new ball. Process goes much faster suppose the. Case feeder and the bullet reader installed now I'm gonna go ahead and turn on a bullet peter day is activated. And the bullet are installed and that's. Basically how the both heaters work like. I said we're in another video we'll be using the rifle bullet feeder to do 223. I'm going to go ahead and remove the. Activation bar for the case feeder so. That no more cases are fed and I'll go. Ahead and finish up with the bullets. That are in the system now. And there you have it. Bullet theater makes things go quite a bit faster that's all for this video i.
