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.

NEW EZJECT SYSTEM
The NEW EZject system delivers 100% reliable ejection of every cartridge, every time, without any adjustments.
The Lock-N-Load AP can be changed from large to small primers as easy as 1-2-3. 1) Change the primer seater punch. 2) Change the primer shuttle. 3) Change the primer feed tube.
CASE ACTIVATED POWDER DROP
Case activated powder drop will dispense a powder charge ONLY when there is a cartridge case present. No more messes.
QUICK CHANGE METERING INSERTS
The Lock-N-Load powder measure uses quick-change metering inserts that allow you to switch from one powder to another with the push of a button. Add one to each dieset for the ULTIMATE quick change-over.
QUICK CHANGE LOCK-N-LOAD BUSHING SYSTEM
The Lock-N-Load AP has a 5 station quick change bushing system, which allows the Lock-N-Load AP to be changed very quickly; from 223 to 45 in less than 5 minutes. Compare that to any other popular progressive presses on the market.
UNIVERSAL CASE RETAINER SPRING
The Lock-N-Load AP has an ingenious case retainer spring that allows you to quickly and easily remove and replace a case at any point in the loading process AND they are universal. Compare that to “other” progressives… they are not so progressive.
Each station moves 1/2 a stage on the upstroke and 1/2 a stage on the down stroke and the up stroke, making for ultra-smooth function. This process is much smoother than presses that do all their indexing on the down stroke.
LARGE CAPACITY HOPPER
A large capacity hopper comes standard with the Lock-N-Load AP Press. An extra large capacity hopper is available as an option.
