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.
