Hornady LNL AP
Finally made the entry into reloading. Ordered my Hornady LNL tonight along with other various equipment from other MFGS. Thank you for all the information I received here. This place is a wealth of knowledge. I am traveling this week on business but when i return my gear will have arrived. Cant wait until next weekend to set it up! I am starting with 357 mag to feed my S&W 686. Its my favorite to shoot and cant find it anywhere in quantity. I will post anything I learn that is of value to help others. Is it bad that i already got strange looks today at the range as i searched for brass (and i kept stuff i dont even shoot "just in case")?

You made a wise choice. The fact that I don't have to empty a small tray of de-capped primers was enough to get me into the red. Good luck.Licensed Journeyman.

Had mine 6 months now. Done 9mm 40 and just started some 223. No regrets, and if you shoot alot of pistol its a must.
Next thing you know you'll be saying "case, bullet, primer" in your sleep. Unless you got some extra goodies that is.

I just set up my LNL AP last week. So far, I love it, especially after doing it all on a single stage before.
I had a little glitch with the primer feed. About halfway through the first feed tube of primers the primer shuttle slide wasn't receiving the primer from the feed tube. So I ended up charging and seating some cartridges with no primers and the powder was falling out of the vacant primer pocket. I noticed it after a couple of rounds, no big deal. So I decapped and primed the rest of that first batch and belled, charged, and seated as a separate operation.
I'm thinking that the feed primer feed problem may just be due to the machine being new and needing to sort of get broken it. Next batch was fine but this time I used the empty-tube-indicator rod in the primer feed tube (which I didn't do the first time). I'm thinking that the weight of the rod may help feed the primers more reliably.
I'm real happy with this press.

Thanks everyone. Gath3r...i got it from Cabelas. If you are interested, search youtube for Hornady instructional vids. They have a multi part series that walks you through the set up.

The videos are also on the DVD that comes with the press, required watching IMO as it walks you through the steps of setting it up and the written directions make more sense after seeing the actual press in the videos.Glock AA, Smith M&P, Sig P250,Beretta PX4, AR15 Armorer.
