    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.

    So I'm going to show you just a deeper. These cases just run in just a couple. Times not too much okay so after. Trimming them it was really easy to do. Then this with this little tool this is. A tool put out by lyman now it's got a. Pocket cleaner here that are clean the. The primer pockets and so i just run that just a few times in and it's got. It's got different sizes this thing actually has you can swap it out for. Small primers whatnot but then I've got. The you swap it out and now this will. Deeper the outside of the casings. You know it doesn't take but just a. Couple times and that's it that's all you want to do so what that does that. Creates a piece of brass that is now. Sized and has its bendy bird so that's. Actually ready to start the reloading process now before i get too far like. Said already had the primers knocked out of that one so the first step of this process on this kit is that. You're gonna have to go have to use. This kit that knock that prime around it's actually and the easiest things to. Do and it's also pretty fun so that was. It okays so there's my primer. I've got a uh so now it's got another. Chasing this usually ready what i do. When I'm using this i usually just d prime all my casings and then. When i start acting the actual reloading. I'll have them I'll have them already so. Well I've gotten this close I'll just go ahead and. I'll go ahead and put that in there and. Just sighs this case and it's super okay see that ones that need doesn't need. Trimming but it really wasn't hard to do. What disallowed me in today now is dad i. Don't even have to I'm not even worried about measuring what i do like about the. Lead loader is that they do come. With a city with a pretty decent set of. Directions because the parts are in this. Just don't look like standard they just. Really don't look like standards reloading parts so what kind of no one. Think that i have seen what i really. Have seen that people don't do and make. This easier is that for some reason. People don't reload there when they're. Using these kits they're not they're not. Lubing the cases now this is just next. Sizing and but i don't understand why. Why they're not why they're not doing i. Guess they're just kind of saying well you don't have to but there's there's a. Step the way this thing actually works is your we're done actually what's going. You do this. So the way this thing actually works is that you drive this case drive it down. Into this cylinder. So the way this thing works is your way. This thing works is you drive this case down into the cylinder but i always use some type of case loop because once you. Do that so all right, so we're gonna go ahead and let's do that all right that. Was pretty easy on the next step in the. Process is your pop the priming this thing and actually i used the top of my. Mic a sleeve to hold my primers now. What you're gonna do is you're gonna flip this over and this thing. Actually has its spring-loaded that's holding this primer and for some reason. People have issue with this and they say. They can't you know when i see videos, and they're like well you know i this doesn't work for me and I'm not able to do this i think it's because they're not looping their cases because what you're. Gonna do is that you're gonna drive this out you're gonna drive it down on top of. This primer that i have sitting its you. Now the bottom you know the bottom side is facing up so it's gonna be I'm loading it into this cartridge now. So what i notice is that it's its very. Solid at first but as i keep driving it. I'm gonna notice that what i just did i just felt it that it gets it actually. Gets softer and what's happened is when i drive this shell out it starts hitting that spring-loaded bottom that's on this other thing and so what I've got now. What i have now is i have a case that. Has now been primed and the primer is. It's good and flush good and flush with. It with the casein but it's I'm gonna go. Ahead and I'm gonna do that again because it's i think that's where people. Have trouble and it's really not that. Hard you just you learn to just feel it. Okay so i just sized it by knocking it. In their okay and then we're gonna do. We're gonna flip this over on top of this primer all right when i start. Driving this thing out my casing is. Right now it's stuck inside this cylinder so it's gonna be very solid but. Once it starts moving and once it hits the this base that has a spring load on it where this primer is it's gonna get. Soft and you're gonna feel that that spring tension is in your driver so all. Right let's started moving i can feel okay i mean and i can hear i can. Actually hear the difference the sound changes there's three different sounds that it goes through so it's solid when. It's stuck in then it starts moving then. The sound mellows out and then when it starts hitting the bottom of this i miss because this thing has a it has a hard. Bottom on it but it's the this ring is spring tensioned whenever starts hitting. The bottom of that and what's pushing your primary is when it starts sounding solid again so there we go we've got. Another one that's the primers you know ready to go so i think the reason people. Have trouble is that they're not they're. Not leaving their cases so maybe if they. Did that, and they wouldn't have that problem but it's pretty simple I'll go. Ahead I'll do another i don't know if you could hear that but. There's three different sounds that just what just happened right there and you. Can just feel it you can feel i mean after you dude you know just a few i say. By the time you do ten you'll feel. Like a pro with that because it's you can hear it's pretty actually pretty simple and one thing i like about these lis loaders you know they've been out. Here too long getting trashed in the powder if they come with these little. Measuring scoops now one thing that i do. Differently the weight then know the way. This is designed is that actually you. Would leave this in the tube like per. The instructions you would leave this in the tube and what you do you'd switch out the bases so you would say okay I'm done with this base and you're gonna go to this base that has a hole in it so you don't have any issues with you'll. Have any issues of like accidentally firing off the primer so the case. Actually sits in there and you would slide this over the top no way this is designed is that you can take your scoop. Of powder and you can dump it in here and it's cut it kind of creates like. A phone on it let's go on down in your case the reason i don't do that is. Because with the cast bullets i use i. Use like petroleum jelly to lubricate these bullets and it gets inside of here. And what happens when i pour the powder in there the powder wants to stick to you know all the lubrication that winds up sticking inside of here so i actually do a little bit different you know and you find that everybody's kind of got their own little techniques how to do that but that's the reason i. Do mine a little different but what i do i just do it like this and i got a funnel got a funnel here so just show. You pretty simple one thing to have accuracy you have to. Have consistency so when it comes to the. Powder what i did i take this car that this is a car that comes with it now one. Think about these cards is that it shows you the bullet weight and then the. Powder options and it gives you like an estimated velocity on these cards so but. I actually at this point in time all right you know one I'm going to use and i just use the card to level off the. Casing there we go all right we're ready. To go to that one leave that there and. I'll go ahead and let's learn it let's. Go ahead and load this bad boy up. So one thing knows okay so now that I've. Got this things this thing is hot and this thing's got a new primer you switch the basis that's the. Instructions go over that so if you. Follow the instructions you won't go wrong with that now. I use the petroleum jelly it's cheap. Works good i don't have any issues with. It all you're gonna do drop that down in. There it slides down and pretty easily now I'm gonna show you're gonna go. Back to the original case that the base. That you used it were to set the primers and you're gonna use this side of it and this is what's actually going to seat your bullet and so what you're going to do you're gonna sit this on top of there and you're gonna drive it down until it. Hits the top of this collar now what's. Important to talk about is that there. Has to be you know there's no adjustment. Made into this the adjustment is made. Into this thing there's a lot and you. Now just there's a lock not hit or like a lock washer and i would call that a lock nut but what you can do you can. Screw it up you basically you screw this. Think out and when you drive it down. What that does it allow you to seat the bullet and you want to work your way. Down until you get to the right. Depth now the reason it's so important. To have your cases all trim the. Same and that's what you know this. Case trimmer works good is that if you. Have a case that is longer and then you had a case that was shorter and you set your adjustment to the shorter case when. You go to your longer case and you put it in there and you beat it down your bullets gonna be set deeper into that casing so that's why it's good that you. Really want to have everything really uniform so let's go ahead and I'm just gonna go. With the pre adjustment that i had on it and let's see how that does folks. That's it just listen to the sound. Oh yeah that's pretty good okay so we. Have 45 70 now this has no crimp on it. Let me show you if you want to put a crimp on it no i know what i just. Had this thing on here like this if i. Want to put a crimp on it flip it over and the crimp the only thing about this. The crimp is the only thing that's conda. Practice the crimp i learned you just. Kind of got to put some force into it so what we're gonna do here. Let's check the overall maximum overall. Length is two point five zero so. We'll check our overall length here and. If anybody ever wants me to do a video on how to use these things I'd be happy. To do that — okay so it's two point five. Five zero so what I've got I've got two. One two three four five and I'm at. Thirty 33 so really what I'm at is two. Point five three that's what I'm. At two point five three so I'm. Good I'm below the hope the maximum. Length of two point five zero so. We're good with that so that was real. Simple didn't take long it's simple to. You know really get into swab recommend these kits because it takes you from. Zero to actually reloading in the. Shortest the shortest route so i hope this. Helped this video kind of changed your. Mind about reloading i hope it i hope it. Convinces you that you can do it and you don't have to spend a hundred dollars you know hundreds of dollars to start doing it this is that's one that I've loaded. You know alerted that in the past but. Yeah like i said it was this was a this was a. Stepping stone for me you know it was somewhere that i started and you. Now and I've moved on since then but you know the only reason i would say that I've moved on is because the lee is limited in. The calibers that they make these. In now so if you're just gonna reload. Basic calibers i mean that's that's actually it's decently round I've been shooting these things a hundred yards I'm real pleased with them in fact i mean for forty-five seventy this is the only thing that I'm using to reload. Forty five seventy so i hope that you. No hope that was helpful to you and I'll probably go ahead and reload a few. More of these there's no point in being i got all this stuff out might as well go ahead and do it actually doesn't take that long so anyway hope you tune. Back in if you liked the video subscribe to my channel i appreciate that I'm. Gonna try to have some more videos put. Up here that kinda maybe help you be. More self-reliant and whenever there's the next ammo shortage or the threat of. A gun grab i want you to be like me i want you to be not not as concerned it's still important to vote it's still important to express our opinions but. You don't have to go into that panic mode that's not really necessary so good. Bless and i hope everything turns out. Good for us.

    Okay guys if you want to see how easy it. Is to change this turret on a lyman 8. Station turret press hang on and we'll. Show you how Okay it's a real simple job I'm going to. Show you how to change the turret and set up my 308 dies there's a couple ways. To do this i think the intended way of course i. Don't read the manual like everybody else there's a hole in this not on the. Top of the turret you stick the handle in here and then all you do is to turn a. Little bit spin the not grayed out i actually don't like doing that the. Threads are really longer than not well. It's a bolt actually so i do it. Differently i just take my little impact. Driver here put the socket on the top of. The knife bend it off it's way faster. Way easier okay now there is a washer on. The top that makes it all work because. There's a there's a spacer there's a. Bushing in the middle of the turret to. Keep it so the turret can spin but yet the bolt can be tight when you get it. You get the bushing and you get the turret but you don't get the handle and the not even though the pitcher makes it look like you do now also there's a little ball bearing right. Here that your detent don't don't lose that it'll fall right. Out of there and don't ask me how i know. So how to do is you set this on here. Line up the hole good turn nut your bolt. Started run it down you're all set it's. Tight it's all done and it's still turned. Because of that bushing so put the. Handle back in inside where we want i like to start and. Handle out of the way so the first one I'm going to put in now this is a lien. Excising die i don't use that very often. But I'll keep it here so i don't you know keep it with the rest of the 3:08 stuff i keep all my dies together that's. Why the other ones full there's actually only two calibers in that 6.5 and 223. Are the only two that's in that but i got a lot of those so then this is my. Actual lyman full-length resizing die i. Use all different kinds of days i have. Reading and i have lee and then this. Line and set now you put your handle all the way up turn this down till it. Touches i like a little cam over because. This press will do it so i usually turn into the extra quarter. Turn or so and then maybe a little more. Then that there and tighten it down and. You tighten the setscrew if you want now. I have some cam over make sure get. My full length sizing this is your cedar. Die move that into position and i screw. That down but what i do with this is i. Take a case and i put a case in there. And then i run that all the way up in. Then i turn this die down until it touches the case. There it's touching then I'll back it. Out of turn because i don't want it to. Crimp i don't use a crimp for my bolt. Guns so that's tighten that down and then you. Won't be definitely won't hit and crimp your case now and you have plenty of. Adjustment with your cedar stem to get. That where it needs to be I'm not gonna seat any bullets today but i will I'll run one through my sizer guy just. To show you i feel okay lube on it very. Little too much and you'll bend the shoulders too little and you'll stick. The case so it's kind of fine line. There push that in out and you're all. Done now if you want drop it in a case. Gauge drops right in it's all good it's all full length your size that dice setup so if you have any questions ask. Then in the comments and like i said. That's it that's all there is to it have a good one guys thanks for watching.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

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.

    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. Hope you liked it maybe you learn something if so please click the like. Button maybe even subscribe to my channel thanks for watching and happy. Reloading.
