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)

  • 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 ?

  3. I have 45 inches clearance from my workbench top to the ceiling in my reloading room. Is this enough clearance to mount the ammo plant with case feeder on an inline fabrication mount??
    Cant find dimensions for this anywhere online
    As always, thanks for your knowledge and help!
