Hornady Lock N Load AP Progressive Reloading Press
Progressive reloading that’s smooth, precise and fast.
With a single pull of the handle, you’ll feel the difference between this high-performance machine and ordinary reloading presses. You’ll feel the smooth responsiveness, the rugged construction, and most of all, the power! The Power-Pac Linkage System literally multiplies and accelerates the leverage you apply to the handle. And since the AP features automatic indexing, priming and ejection, every pull of the handle give you a precisely loaded round.
All you need are dies and shell plates to start loading with your AP™!
Quick Change Lock-N-Load® Bushing System
Lock-N-Load® AP™ has a 5-station quick change bushing system that allows quick and easy change overs from 223 to 45 in less than 5 minutes.
Quick Change Metering Inserts
The Lock-N-Load® powder measure uses quick change metering inserts that allow you to switch from one powder to another with the push of a button. Add one to each die set for the ultimate in quick change overs.
Reliable EZject™ System
The EZject™ feature delivers 100% reliable ejection of every cartridge, every time, without any adjustments.
Universal Case Retainer Spring
The ingenious case retainer spring allows you to quickly and easily remove or insert a case at any point in the loading process.
The Lock-N-Load® AP™ System can be changed from large to small primers as easy as 1-2-3:
- Change the primer seater punch.
- Change the primer shuttle.
- Change the primer feed tube.
Case Activated Powder Drop
Case activated powder drop will dispense a powder charge only when a cartridge case is present.
Each station moves half a stage on the down stroke and half on the up stroke, making for ultra smooth functioning. This process is much smoother than presses that do all their indexing on the down stroke.
