If you are a Hornady Lock-N-Load AP owner, you’ll want to know about a product that’s compatible with the Hornady Lock-N-Load powder measure. This product is a universal powder-through expander that is offered for sale by PowderFunnels.com. This product allows you to use all of the normal features of Hornady’s Lock-N-Load powder measure, including the “Quick Change Powder Through Expander Linkage” which I recently blogged about. What this product does is to allow the reloader to have more control over how much bell is applied to the case mouth, and to have one powder through expander that can be used for a variety of case mouth diameters.
I’ve been testing this product with 44 Magnum (as pictured above, along side a 45 caliber Hornady PTX expander), and it has been working well. I have not yet tried using it with Hornady’s bullet feeder, but my friend Steve Herndon has tested this combo (Powderfunnels.com funnel with Hornady bullet feeder) and it has worked well for him.
So, if you’re interested in the universal nature of this product, or want the ability to fine tune the belling diameter when not using a dedicated expander die, you should check out this product!
