Hornady Lock and Load primer modification

#1 Post by shinzen » Sat Jun 16, 2018 6:54 pm

There's been a few times now where the interior primer tube in the LNL worked it's way loose on me in the past couple of years, and each time it's a major pain in the ass. Finally got around to doing a modification I read about someplace awhile back of tapping and threading the block that holds it in place with a machine screw- finished that up today and it works perfectly. Hopefully will not have to deal with that particular mess ever again.

This is what it looks like:

I love my set of taps and dies, when I bought them it was like a whole new world was opened up for me.

Yeah, one of those things that you don't need frequently, but they sure are handy when you need them. And unlike my steering wheel removal tool, more than a one time use.
