Notes:

To tell if shellplates need to be updated, turn the shellplate upside down and look for a groove that runs in a circular pattern around the shellplate. If there is no groove present Hornady will modify old shellplates to work with the EZ-ject system.

Great PRESS!! take your ...

Great PRESS!! take your time and set up dies one at a time. After some seat time you will be cranking out high volumes of ammo with QUALITY. Key points, keep shell plate clean from powder. Get a rhythm, slight hesitation at the bottom of down stroke. when changing shell plates, cycle press until retaining spring seats into groove where the shell enters the plate.

I just got this press to ...

I just got this press to go along with my Dillon 550 (which it's probably going to replace) and I'm very happy. This press has gotten some bad publicity in the past, but a lot of it no longer applies:The priming system has been redesigned. It no longer has an on/off switch and the punch is now held in place by a nut, not a knurled knob (among other changes). The updated priming system on my new LnL AP is 100% functional, even more reliable than my Dillon 550's. A good feature often overlooked is that spent primers get pushed out directly into a tube which you can direct into a trash can. This keeps my LnL MUCH cleaner than my 550 (which is always getting gummed up and jammed up from spent primer debris).Lee dies do work in this press, although not always in the fifth station (usually not a problem). If you want to use a powder cup in fourth station, a Lee crimp die will probably fit in the fifth station. If you want to use a Lee factory crimp in the fifth station, it will probably NOT fit (especiall...

Really a nice press

I have this press set up with pretty much every accessory that one can put on it. 4 tube bullet feeder, 4 tube case feeder with collator, auto drum, etc. Using quick change bushings, the spare drums, and shell plates available, it is fairly quick to change calibers. As of the time of this review I have loaded .380, 9mm, 38 special, .357 mag, 40 s&w, .357 sig, 45 acp, and 44 mag on the press to amount to a few thousand rounds and have had no real issues. The only issue I can really think of as a big negative is that the 44 mag rounds won't cycle through the case feeder due to the large diameter and have to be fed in the top of the press manually. I haven't looked into to it much to see if there is another option to remedy the problem. Other than that, the press has been pretty great.

What Customers Are Saying

Great reloading machine.

I planned on using this press to produce .45acp ammo for training and Precision (Bullseye) Pistol competition. I give the press 5 stars because of what is AFTER it is set up correctly. I had some primer feeding issues but once they were resolved this machine will just produce quality ammunition. I particularly like its flexibility and the primer being seated on the down stroke of the handle and ram. This is one smooth machine, expensive but smooth.
