Powder Through™ Expanders

Powder Through™ Expanders (PTX™) are designed to work in conjunction with the Case Activated Powder Drop. These Expanders eliminate the need for a separate case mouth expander die on the Lock-N-Load® AP™ press, freeing up an extra station for a taper crimp die or powder cop. The Expanders work for lead, plated and jacketed bullets.

Hornady® Powder Cop

Item #050063

Install on your progressive press after the powder drop station to automatically check dropped charges. Checking powder charges on your progressive press can be difficult, and is sometimes ignored, even though it's a smart practice.

Hornady® uses a similar device on our own ammo manufacturing presses. It won't replace careful attention, but helps monitor the reloading process. Works with all powder types and cartridges.
