Hornady adds “Ammo Plant” to product lineup

Interested in getting a complete “turn-key” reloading setup geared towards cranking out large quantities of pistol ammo? You may want to check out the new “Ammo Plant” from Hornady!

Here’s what’s included in the kit:

  • Lock-N-Load AP Press
  • Lock-N-Load AP Bullet Feeder
  • Lock-N-Load AP Case Feeder
  • Lock-N-Load AP Die Bushing 10 pack
  • Spring Case Retainer 3 pack (x2)
  • Large Cartridge Catcher (x3)
  • Large Primer Tube Pickup (x3)
  • Small Primer Tube Pickup (x3)
  • Primer Slide Spring (x2)
  • Pistol Metering Insert/Rotor
  • Rifle Metering Insert/Rotor
  • Powder Cop
  • Die Wrench
  • Case Activated Powder Drop
  • Vintage Tin Sign

I really like the fact that you get 3 primer pick-up tubes for both large and small primer sizes. Look for this new product to be available at your Hornady retailer soon!

Want to see these components in action? Here’s a video that shows the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP, the Hornady Lock-N-Load case feeder, and the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP bullet feeder all working together to crank out 45ACP ammo:

  1. Hey Gavin I have had this complete set for about a year, used it a ton and love it. Have had a couple of issues and Hornady stepped up to the plate with new parts. Had my Hornady 1000 powder scale go south the other day after 2 yrs service. Hornady only warrants electrical products for 1 yr. but I sent it back anyway after talking to tech support. They have sent me a new 1500 scale free of charge as they don’t make the other scale any longer. I really don’t know how Dillons no BS warranty could be any better than what is on the big red machines. == Robert ==

  2. Gavin – I really enjoy your info and videos. Keep up the great work!
    The ammo plant looks like a great set up all in one package. I have the LNL AP press and am considering the LNL case & bullet feeder. The only draw back to the LNL AP is filling the primer tubes.

    I would like to see Hornady develop a large capacity progressive primer tube filler tray, similar to the MEC 8983 shotshell primer filler where you could dump a whole pack of primers upside down into the tray and go back to loading.

    Is there a reason that you are aware of that none of the major metallic (pistol/rifle) reloading companies hasn’t looked into something similar to the MEC design yet ?
