The Hornady lock-n-load AP deluxe spent primer catcher attaches to the Hornady lock-n-load progressive press and catches all spent primers from the decapping die to keep your workspace clean and safe. The large capacity reservoir will keep your reloading longer and make clean up easier.
My set-up to capture spent primers for years was a vinyl hose connected to the spent primer tube with the free end of the vinyl hose draped into a waste bucket. Problem with this set-up was the vinyl hose had a "memory" and would curl up and pop out of the waste bucket spilling primers all over the floor. I got excited when I came across the Hornady spent primer catcher. Never knew such a thing existed. Initially I had concerns that the weight of the bottle along with spent primers would cause the plastic tube to come loose from the bottle cap or the brass spent primer tube. I'm happy to say that after reloading over 1000 rounds, the Hornady primer catcher works like a charm and the plastic hose has not come loose/disconnected. Best $10 I ever spent. I suppose you could cobble something together on the cheap from an old soda bottle and some tubing, but this is so inexpensive why bother? Highly Recommended.
I've had my ammo plant for about 5 years and it was always a pain to put something to catch primers on the floor and half the time they would bounce out. I just happened to be looking for another Hornady product and came across the primer catcher. Wish I would have known about it a long time ago!
I really like this for catching spent primers as it is well made and holds a ton of primers. Also includes a very long vinyl tube. However, I wish they would have included a plastic bracket to mount it somewhere. You could probably print one or find something that works though.
At first I thought this was a little hokey and overpriced. I tried different catch pans and lids but the spent primers would bounce out and land on the desk and floor. Now they drop right into the bottle.
No nonsense solution from the mfr. should have been included with the press.
Another great Hornady product. The enginerring is good.
The like still has a bit of a kink but I think it will open up more. Still works well
