Lock-N-Load® Quick Change Bushing System

Lock-N-Load® bushings not only let you switch from one die to another in a matter of seconds, they also offer the quickest and easiest die setup on the market. Just set the die and tighten the Sure-Loc™ ring on to the Lock-N-Load® bushing. Quickly remove and re-install without the need to readjust the die or keep a separate seater die for each of your pet loads.

Power-Pac Linkage and Solid Steel Arms

Arms rotate on steel pins that run completely through the cast frame. The Power-Pac linkage design multiplies the leverage you apply to the handle, making it easier to size cases and reduces user fatigue.

Positive Priming System™ (PPS)

Once the spent primer ejects at the top of the stroke, you can add a new primer to the PPS and it self-aligns to feed and insert the primer at the bottom of the stroke where leverage is best. Our self-aligning primer arm also allows for easy manual inserting of primers without having to raise the handle. All the work is done at the bottom of the stroke. Works easier than ram prime units and much better than old style primer arms. Small and large punch included.

Strong Angled Frame

This high strength alloy frame offers the rigidity and stability needed for precision reloading, and is guaranteed never to break or fail. The frame's unique angle gives the reloader greater visibility and easier access to the cartridge in the press.

How Lock-N-Load® Works

The Hornady® Lock-N-Load® System is as Easy as 1-2-3
Insert the Lock-N-Load® die bushing into the press bushing and lock it into place with a twist. The six locking lugs on the die and press bushings will hold it securely in position.
Insert your standard die with 7/8"-14 threads into the Lock-N-Load® bushing.
Adjust the die to the proper position and lock your setting into the place with Hornady's unique Sure-Loc lock ring.

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 will remain exactly as you set them. The positive locking action of the Lock-N-Load® bushings holds the dies in rock solid, perfect alignment.

Once you try Lock-N-Load® from Hornady®, you'll NEVER want to go back to your old system!
