The Lock-N-Load AP with NEW EZject system loads at a rate of up to 500 rounds per hour, and features the quickest change-over of any progressive press.

The Lock-N-Load AP is a professional-grade, auto-indexing, 5-station progressive press that features Our patented Lock-N-Load bushing system as well as a host of other features — detailed below — that make it much more attractive than other, more expensive presses, such as the Dillon XL650.


Lock-N-Load Powder Measure
The only system that uses a full size powder measure that can be reset to another charge or powder with the push of a button. The unique inserts can be pre-set to the charge you use with the calibre you are loading. The most flexible (and economical) powder system available for progressive presses.

Priming System
The primer slide in the shell carrier receives a primer at the top of the stroke and inserts in the case at the bottom of the stroke. The slide stays in perfect alignment, and is easily changed from large to small. Use the included primer pick-up tubes (large and small) to fill the primer tube.

Lock-N-Load Bushing System
Switch dies from one calibre to another or change out die stations and begin reloading again in seconds. Once set, dies never needs readjusting. Bushing locks standard 7/8″-14 dies rock-solid in perfect alignment.

Case Activated Powder Drop
Get a charge of powder only when a cartridge is in place. Works with any cartridge, pistol to magnum rifle. Can be manually operated to check powder charge. Install the optional Lock-N-Load powder die for the fastest changeover of all progressive presses. Also fits RCBS measurer.

Five-station Die Platform
Five stations allow for all the variables and still let you use your standard dies — most 7/8″-14 dies and 7/8″-14 powder measures will work.

Universal Ejector
Cases are automatically ejected into the included case catcher.

Automatic Indexing
This very important feature automatically advances shells to the next station with the smoothest indexing of any press in this price range, and rotates every half stroke to lessen the chance of powder spillage.

Case Retainer
Quickly and easily remove and/or replace a case from the shell plate at any point in the cycle without extra retaining buttons. Case retainer fits all calibres.

Large Cartridge Catcher
A large capacity catcher comes standard with the Lock-N-Load AP Press. An extra large capacity catcher which holds up to 1/3 more completed cartridges is available as an option.
