Part 1 of the Hornady Case Prep Center Video series covering rifle brass trimming.
Shooters tend to be enthusiastic about what they do. Enthusiasts tend to want complete control over their activities. The natural conclusion is that shooters want complete control over their shooting experiences- from plinking to hunting, to competition shooting. Reloading for your weapon affords you more complete control over your shooting experiences. If you want the […]
In this video I give an overview of the Hornady Case Prep Center, and walk through included accessories and features.
If you’re like me you like it when you can get the most out of a tool or piece of equipment. When it comes to progressive reloading, some equipment is more specialized and some is more “general purpose”. When it comes to versatility, it’s hard to beat the case rim design that’s common between the […]
You’ve probably seen and read about one of the cool new reloading products unveiled at last year’s SHOT show- the RCBS pistol bullet feeder. This attachment is a great way to increase your reloading efficiency. One of the limitations of this product is the fact that it does not work with cast lead bullets. The […]
I’m sure most of you have heard of or seen the new Hornady Case Prep Center. I now have one in my shop, and have used it a bit. I’ll have to say, so far I’m really liking this piece of equipment. When you first pull down the main lever, you’ll be surprised at how […]
I’ve been testing and shooting videos of the RCBS Pistol Bullet Feeder- an exciting new product that was announced and demo’d at last year’s SHOT show. As of this writing I’ve tested it on the Dillon XL-650, The Hornady Lock-N-Load AP, and the RCBS Pro 2000. It’s a great product, and it really enhances pistol […]
One of the most effective way to enhance the operation of your reloading press is to make sure it is mounted rock solid. By rock solid I mean- if you could, weld it to the deck of an aircraft carrier (peraps that’s not practical… 🙂 ). Over the last couple of years, I’ve had quite […]
Not sure what it is, but I really like blued revolvers. Stainless is much more practical in some ways, but finely crafted curved blue steel is just a thing of beauty! The revolver pictured below makes me think I’m a detective from 1932. There’s something about holding it that makes me want to put on […]
Any time you go to choose reloading components, you have to ask yourself- with all of the choices out there, which product is right for this application? When you’re selecting a pistol powder, here are a few things to consider: Caliber, barrel length, power level, bullet weight Metering capabilities Load data Safety and case capacity […]
I recently got this question from a reader (recoilamrs) regarding loading 45ACP on the Hornady Lock-N-Load: Hi! This is killing me I swear!! No matter what I do I can’t reload 45 auto that fits into my XD45. It doesn’t look like new ammo and it always seems to bend the case wall. I don’t […]
I hear a lot of people online asking the question: “When should I buy reloading equipment, and how long will it take to pay for itself?” Usually the equation goes something like this: Equipment Cost = ((factory box ammo cost) – (reloaded box ammo cost)) * X Solving for X: X = (Equipment Cost ) […]
In this video you’ll see the process of loading 45 ACP on the RCBS Pro 2000 progressive with the new RCBS bullet feeder attachment. This attachment greatly increases the speed of loading on the RCBS Pro 2000, and is fun to use Thanks, Gavin
Looking back at the last year, it’s been exciting to try out all types of new equipment, and to reach my goal (for 2009) of having videos posted for all 4 “5 Station” progressive reloading presses currently on the market. It all started with the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP Progressive, I then added the Dillon XL-650, […]

Sample screenshot: If you want to go straight to the reloading section, follow this link: http://www.hornady.com/reloading Thanks- […]
