Hornady lock and load auto charge on sale

Postby ShootnMathews » Sun Jan 03, 2016 7:09 am

Natchez shooting supplies has the Hornady Lock and Load auto charge on sale for $169 right now. I've been wanting a way to speed up my loading and decided to give one of these a try. The price is way cheaper than anywhere else so I almost expected it to be a refurbished one, but it was brand new when it arrived. I've got to say I am pleasantly surprised at how accurate it is. I cross weighed charges back and forth between my beam scale and the auto charges scale and it is really consistent. I've loaded up some rounds with it but have not shot them yet. I hope to shoot them in a bit. I'm doubtful that this is the way to go to load 1000 yard + ammo but from what I've weighed I think 500-600 yard ammo should be no problem just letting the dispenser throw out. I'll post some pics of groups later

This sale price is nearly half of the RCBS version.

Good luck and good shooting.

I have and use one of those. It works great. My only issues arise when using powders with large grains. I usually set it to start trickling at 6gr before the target weight. And the straw mod works like with the rcbs. Huge time saver. Great price!

Yeah. Straw was the first thing I did. I'm pretty happy with it. Perfect for loading plinking loads. Can load them so fast it's not even like work. :thumbup:
