In this post, I’ll give you an overview of the Hornady Lock-N-Load Rifle Bullet Feed 30 caliber conversion kit (Hornady product # 095345). With this kit, you can convert your .22 caliber Hornady Lock-N-Load Rifle Bullet Feeder to load 30 caliber bullets for cartridges like 308 Winchester, 30-06, and many others.
In the above picture you can see the contents of this 30 caliber conversion kit, clockwise from top left:
- 30 caliber bullet feed die assembly
- Tall pivot block
- Bullet guide plate (silver – top) and bullet feed wheel (black, underneath)
- Bullet drop tube assembly
Check out this video showing how these components are installed:
It’s quite easy to install the 30 caliber converstion kit, and in my next post in this series, I’ll show you how to fine tune this setup, and later we’ll load 308 Winchester in full progressive mode. Stay tuned because it’s going to be fun!
