The lock-n-load reloading system is a unique Bushing process that allows dies to be changed with a flick of the wrist. Simply insert the die into a lock-n-load Bushing. Place the Bushing in the press and lock it into place with a twist. The six lugs on the Bushing will hold the die securely in place. Change dies in seconds! for use with Hornady lock-n-load presses only. Steel.
I bought this bushing set from the information i got from the page it was supposed to have 10 bushings and the part that goes in the press. Not only didn't come with the part i needed to install in the press. The damn package come opened and everything was loose all over the place. I didnt want to spend more money on extra parts i needed when i bought it thinking everything was in there. The item purchase page needs to be a little more clear on what you're buying.
Unlike some other reviewers, I am using these on a RCBS Rockchucker with the LNL bushing. It really helps me speed the process up by not having to microadjust the dies every time I switch dies. I have switched between 9mm, 45 ACP, 308 Winchester, and 45-70 without any of the FL, seating, or crimp dies drifting from the original setup. I would recommend placing Loctite Blue between the bushing and the Rockchucker. This helps the bushing from unscrewing when you unlock the die from the bushing.
Iona Dillon 650 that's all tricked out but this is a really nice option to have a single stage quantity lock and load press. If you buy these in bulk it's not so bad. Having duplicate dies, that's another story. But where you what to road test loads, gearing up a 650 for a run doesn't make sense.
High quality Hornady parts. The only problem with the LNL bushing system is that when using Lee dies they tend to be a little shorter than other brand dies and so the adjustment nearly bottoms out and at times does bottom out unless you use a different die locking nut.
As long as you use the same shell holder for each different sizer and seater you can change out within a minute and get right back to it. Always check COL and cartridge length at each step.
I have the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP Press and it is set for these right out of the box. I thought these were such a great idea, I wish I had known about them a long time ago. I even converted my RCBS Ammomaster single stage over to these with a separate conversion kit from Hornady. Once the dies are set there is little to no adjustment needed if you take them out and back in. Just leave the bushing set on the die bodies.
I've been a big fan of these bushings for a while now. I have the kit that allows my single stage press to use the bushing and they are such a huge timesaver I now have them on nearly all my reloading dies.
These are a must have when using a Hornady reloader, it makes it easy to set your dies and simply unlock and swap them out without the use of any tools.
Since shipping was free on this particular item, the price was too competitive to miss. The product is as advertised. It's a Hornady product, inherently good quality.
Invaluable, makes switching out dies quick and easy.
4 stars for product, minus a star for price. These things should cost 5 bucks each max, but they work GREAT
you can never have too many of these,, especially with mutiple calibers
makes changing out dies quick and easy. Good hornady quality
