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.

    Okay guys i put my 45 shell plate on and. When i raise it when i come down it's. Sinners okay now watch see this i got to. Give it a little turn sometimes not all the time say this one again see it turn. A little bit i have to push it that time. It's centered up that time it's centered. Up see so it seems to be only one half of. The shell plate unless i need. To do it quicker i don't know sometimes. It gets hung up seats gotta move it say it all rights well it says to turn. The set screws clockwise to lower the pas and then set screw counterclockwise to. Raise the paul so i think i got to do the right paw and that should work but i. Don't know if i should mess with it or not sometimes going up it seems like. It's getting hung up to see it didn't go. So i have to move it so all right so you. Guys with a hornady let me know now i did put a little dab of grease around. Here just i mean just smeared it on i. Didn't fill the holes or nothing just a little bit of grease wheel bearing grease so all right let me know. Appreciate it sorry to bother you oops. Just like will handle by mistake so. That's like i said it doesn't do it all. The time so you have to move it a little. But alright have a great day.

    Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Classic™ Kit

  • Everything in one package except dies
  • Features single-stage press
  • Includes latest reloading handbook
  • Features a patented quick-change bushing system that lets you change dies with a simple flick of the wrist. With Lock-N-Load technology in your reloading press, you can stop loading, change dies, and start loading another caliber in seconds. If you load more than one caliber, Lock-N-Load will dramatically speed up your reloading efforts. To change calibers, simply twist the die counterclockwise, remove die and insert your next preset Lock-N-Load die and bushing. Because they remain locked in their Lock-N-Load Bushings, your dies stay exactly as you set them. The positive locking action of the Lock-N-Load Bushings hold the dies in rock solid, perfect alignment. The combination of six locking lugs and the close tolerance of the tooling firmly grip the die bushing in place in the press for maximum rigidity and accuracy in reloading. Rubber O-rings on the die bushings give you a better feel when the die is inserted and holds the die tight against the locking lugs to prevent accidental loosening. Once you try Lock-N-Load from Hornady, you’ll never want to go back to your old system.

    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.

    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.

    If you're like me you love to get your hands on new gear and that's exactly what we're gonna do in this video gavin you hear from ultimate freeloader calm i got a couple new products from linemen to show you under their brass smith brand we've got the new lineman powder major this has got some unique features I'm looking forward to trying, and we've got the stands that works really nicely with this measure you can. Mount it on your bench you can mount it to the wall it gives you all sort of flexibility so let's take a look at what we got have not opened this box yet i. Did however see this at the shaw show. Instructions and pretty straightforward. We've got the powder major main body. There we've got a handle this is an ambidextrous design got the holes on both sides so you can either actuate. With your right hand or your left hand, and then we've got some small parts here. Let's see what all is in front okay. Seven eighths by fourteen main body this. Is gonna screw into any press that or. Any stand that has seven eighths by fourteen which is the standard reloading. Die sizing we've got a couple drop. Funnels and then we've got handle. Mounting screws and it even includes the allen key that you need to put it all. Together so i like to drop with my right. Hand I'm just gonna start putting this together okay i like drum-type powder measures because. I've found them to get five really. Consistent results consistent powder. Charges more than the other styles that. I've tried although the lis models that have the. Cavities those have also worked to pretty consistently for me kind of. Depends on the powder sometimes too what's nice about this major is that it has the baffle included. So get the lid off here so that's going. To result in a consistent packing of the. Powder in the drum which means consistent charges if you don't have the baffle there's more packing when you have more powder and less packing in terms of packing pressure in that cavity. When you have less powder so this is going to give us some consistent results which is always good, and then we've got. A larger in a smaller drop funnel to add. This drop me and i body here what's nice. About this with one screw we can quickly. Detach the hopper assembly from the die. Body and that's going to allow us to empty this almost instantaneously which. Is great okay the lock ring so this is. Going to stay in the stand this die body. Here and we can adjust it however we. Want and I'm gonna go ahead and put the. Larger drop funnel in their okay it. Looks like that will go into the base just fine let's take a look at the base now to flip these tabs with a knife. Blade there we go of course this has got. A matching orange finish wow that's. Really nice i like that sweet okay and. So I'm gonna take a look at this. Mounting arrangement and I'll be back in just a second all right. I quickly sorted out the ideal mounting arrangement so I've got the ultimate reloader bench system here which uses t-tracks and it uses 3/8 by 16 bolts the heads of. Which slide in these tracks and then you clamp things down well these slots are optimized for. Quarter-inch bowl it's not a problem i found some large. Headquarter 20 bolts here i shortened. Then and then know all i have to do is. Slip these into the tracks the challenge. Is keeping them from spinning because they have round heads but this is not a. This is not a supercritical application. And if you kind of pull up on it doesn't want to move as bad so there we. Go now that is solid and i needed no. Base no other hardware just a couple. Quarter-twenty bolts and I'm set so I'm. I'm loving that and then we just take. This die out looks like we can leave the. Funnel on that's cool. And I'm gonna kind of crank it down so i. Have a bit protruding here a little bit more clearance, and then we will kind of. Hand tightens the lock ring, and then we just put the powder major on and what. I'm going to do is I'm gonna rotate it so that i get into one of these detents. There's a little detent radially. Arranged around this die body and I'm. Gonna mount it so that it's perfectly. Straight in one of those detents now. When i want to empty the powder i just loosen the screw take off the cap empty. The powder put the body back on wiggle a. Little bit so that screw goes into the detent and there we go. Okay so let's drop some powder so i. Decided to use a powder that I'm familiar with in terms of meeting which is hodgdon bargain use it all the time and then i did decide to use a case. Instead of the pan that would normally. Go with the scale so let's add some. Powder just using a funnel that I've cut. Down for this purpose here i took a. Moment to degrease the internals always. A good idea to wipe the internal parts doom woo almost overfilled there okay so. We've got the reservoir filled with hodgdon and I'm gonna go ahead and zero. Out my case here and when we've. Confirmed our zero on the case now we can charge the case and see exactly what. Our powder charges. Okay so forty point nine and this might. Take a little while to settle in 41.3. 1.3. One point for. 41.6. 41.6. For 21.5. For 21.9 cuts through the sticks pretty. Well they're a little granule got chopped in half they're 41.5 so you can see we're stabilizing here and 41.9 well. 40 yeah 40 1.9 it's settled out at and. Now when we want to empty the major this. Is what i love it should be just this. Quick and with this powder measure it is we'll just dump it, and then we might. Have to rotate it a little bit to get the powder through the holes in the baffle and then what i like to do is. Just give it a few dumps to let all of. The granules fall out and then we could. Just reattach and we're ready to roll. Okay so for a second test let's charge. Some pistol cases to see how it's going to do with a different powder and with. Smaller charge weights okay so before we. Fill the powder measure what I'm going to do is loosen this brass set screw and. Then we're gonna push the rod in all the. Way and because for this we're gonna simulate a 45 acp charge could be down. In the five grain range sixth grade range something like that, so we're gonna set that on the scale we're going to zero that and make sure that we have. Primer in place we don't want the powder to leak out the bottom okay I'm gonna go. With some hod gins cfe pistol again this is a this is a flattened ball powder this is one that i use for pistol quite a bit again and I'm very familiar with how it meters, so we're gonna go ahead. And fill that aways up and then we're. Gonna continue to use this 30 cal drop. Tube okay you can see there's a bit of. Powder there we're gonna fill the case i don't know about close to halfway see what that. Does get kind of good visual and then. We'll throw it on the scale to see where. Our charge weight is at very smooth okay. And okay we're at six and a half that. Sounds about right so I'm going to go ahead and charge kind of bunch of. These just to get the settle in. Established and then we'll take some. Consistency readings. 6.5. Six point four. 6.5 6.5. Six point five six point five well this. Is great I'm super happy with this powder major as you can see once it settles in you're gonna get really consistent charges and i love the. Features i love the baffle i love the ambidextrous handle i love the adjustable meteor insert with coarse level adjustments and fine level adjustments you don't have to take it apart to go from really small charges. Like six grains up to bigger charges and I'll have the full specs in the. Accompanying blog post click on the first link in the video description to find out more about that love the quick detach love how the base works i. Love that you come out to the wall or the bench i love my slick ultimate reload or bench integration with these hold down bolts the quarter-twenty with the large bolt heads this piece of. Equipment is going to get some regular use and in fact i have planned an orange. Showcase I'm going to tie together pretty much all the brass smith equipment I'm getting one of the first case trim express units there's been a lot of interest in that and i can't wait to try it and show it to you also if you.

    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.

    How's it going youtubers gonna give you. A demo of our is turret press in the next few minutes i want to take a couple minutes and say. So i just got this set up i've been playing around with it a little bit as some of you may know have seen my videos before i've played around with their single stage or rock sucker i also have. A leader at press that i have set up here right next to it that i probably be reviewing as well later but for the. Moment being gonna focus on the rcbs type press so initial impressions it's. Well built like you would expect from any rcbs product it's got the ambi lever. Here so if you're left-handed right-handed however you choose to operate it it's got a smooth stroke. Definitely well-built very solid impressed by those features um i'm gonna. Hit all the things i like initially so yeah very strong very well-built not. Gonna be disappointed with it as far as. Operability initially my impression is. It's used or would be better used as. Almost a single stage press that you can sit up but have it set up here with a saw i have a bullet sizing die on one. Side i was sizing some cast throughway bullets putting gas checks on them the. Other side i have a 300 blackout full. Inside scene die so i was just doing some of those i could show that here off. Ability real quick and i say it'd be better used as a single stage because the manual operation is just something i don't see an individual would use regularly for continuous use the way you. Would on the lee terry press so these uh. Casings here are 300 blackout again. Already been sized and d-prime but a smooth stroke you can see come out size. D capped very nicely a couple. Impressions about that as well here's. The spent primer catch as you can see. It's um i would call it nesting optimal. Well the one i have here i actually put some electrical tape on it just kept cracking in half that's about the. Quality that you know i would expect. From a very low level company not like rcbs so it does catch. Spent primers you can see there are a handful in here that being said i'm just. Not a fan of the design here's one that dropped on by the side i'll catch it in. There and this just rests in here in these two little holes here and that's again meant to be ambidextrous you could switch sides if i only want it from if you're familiar with rcbs you know that. There's the primer tube again for me i'm. Just not a fan of that model i think the lis i think if the other models have just better all-around. Priming a deep priming mechanisms one of. The other things i'll hit real quick here you can't see it great but i'll just lift this up and pull around the. Actual priming mechanism you set that up. I'm just not impressed with it i don't like it a whole lot some of you may like it just doesn't work for me i think there's way better options out there and then along those lines if you look in here there's actually a little toggle in. There so what that's meant to do is it. It slides back and forth um when you. Prime you'll see you know if i went on the down stroke that would push over and. What that does is it it pushes over allows you to prime the casing and then. When you're deep priming so there you. Can kind of see it moving when you're deep priming it's supposed to fall back and direct those spam primers into the plastic tray there my experience i've. Only been using it a very little bit it. Just doesn't work well it gets stuck on one side or the other so i can't say i'm a fan of it i would argue this this. Turret press being again manual rotation. I don't even know how to take off and replaced or it heads yet they're about 50 bucks probably won't spend that probably won't ever do it versus the buck in the liter i press there $10 they're very easy to swap out but i like this for rifle cartridges doing bullet. Size and full-length sizing on rifle. Casings anything where you're going to be doing a lot of stationary effectively. You know treating it like a single stage press but without having to put in a new. Die every time you want to switch to. Bullets eating or crimping this allows. You just to quickly move between the. Different stages and i know i do like that for 250 bucks i think so what i got. In it it's definitely a well built press. I don't think you'd be disappointed with it if i had to make a recommendation i would recommend getting the litre oppress better for roughly a hundred bucks but i like ours to be our cbs. Stuff if you've seen some other videos i'm definitely a fan of a lot of the. Products they make i have the po check or five i'm going to be reviewing i've done the as i mentioned the rock sucker i think it's the junior 3 review so. That's my initial take on this um if you. All have any questions or you are reviewing it as well be happy to hear. From you.

  • Change dies with a twist
  • Perfectly consistent loads
  • Positive locking action holds dies in perfect alignment
  • Solid steel arms
  • Positive Priming System
  • t’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.

    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. 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.

    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.
