Cam-Lock Trimmer
Thanks to the unique way the case is locked in place in the shell holder, this trimmer accurately restores fired cases to the correct length no matter the thickness of the cartridge rim. A light touch of the lever locks the case in place or releases it. The Micro Adjust cutter lets you change settings in increments of 1/1000” without having to move the case. Plus, its large diameter, replaceable cutting head is made of ultra-hard tool steel and trims cases up to .50 caliber. Uses only standard Hornady shell holders and pilots (sold separately).

Lock-N-Load Headspace Gauge
The Lock-N-Load Headspace Gauge is used to extend brass life, improve accuracy, and enhance safety. The gauge measures variations in brass before and after firing or re-sizing. It allows for head space comparison between fireformed brass and re-sized brass.

Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator
Measuring cartridge lengths across the bullet tips is not a reliable (or repeatable) method for measuring your loaded rounds. It’s common for variations of up to .025” to exist from one round to the next. Our Bullet Comparator solves that problem by measuring rounds from a reliable surface on the bullet– the ogive– to provide consistent, precise measurements of your rounds. Included are the Comparator body and all 14 bullet inserts for bullet diameters: .172,” .204,” .224” (5.56mm), .243” (6mm), .257,” .264,” .277,” .284” (7mm), .308,” .338,” .358,” .375,” .416,” .458”.

Lock-N-Load Ammunition Concentricity Tool
This is the first tool on the market to both identify and eliminate bullet runout (or wobble). Just place ammunition in the tool, roll it, identify runout and use the dial indicator thumbscrew to adjust runout to zero. Provides improved accuracy for handloaders, and can be used to true up factory ammo too.

Lock-N-Load O.A.L. Gauges
One of the best kept secrets in accurate reloading is precise bullet seating depth. Regulating seating depth and the resulting “jump” to the rifling is widely regarded as fundamental to improved accuracy. A few thousandths of an inch change between the bullet and the rifling can make the difference between just so-so accuracy and real tackdriver performance. The Lock-N-Load O.A.L. Gauge is universally acclaimed as the most accurate, easy-to-use and reliable method of obtaining that critical relationship.

Regulating seating depth and the resulting 'jump' to the rifling is widly regarded as fundamental to improved accuracy.

The Lock 'n' load Overall length gauge is universally acclaimed as the most accurate, easy to use & reliable method of obtaining that critical relationship.

To use the OAL gauge, you will need to purchase a modified case to fit your firearm's chamber & thread it on to the gauge. Hornaday offers interchangeable modified cases in all common sizes from .17 Rem up to & including .45-70 Govt. These specially designed prepared cases are threaded at the case head & have a .002 oversized neck to accept the same bullets as you intend to load. This is critical, as the Lock 'n' load OAL gauge dimensions obtained will be accurate to .001". Results such as this cannot be obtained with competative products, which use a simulated bullet with an arbitrary shape.

These cases are specially modified to work with Lock-N-Load Precision gauges. A special fine thread is used to attach them to the gauges, ensuring that they remain perfectly square for precise alignment in the chamber of your firearm. Second, the neck of the case is made perfectly round and opened slightly to allow a standard diameter bullet to slip into the case mouth effortlessly, but concentrically, to ensure the most precise results possible.

Hornady Lock 'N' load bullet comparator inserts

Bullet Comparator Inserts are designed for use with the Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator; it eliminates variables when measuring the over-all length of a bullet. Bullet length can vary a few thousandths due to material variation and tip finish. The Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator Inserts allow the reloader to measure the bullet from the base to a specific point on the ogive, which has little variation, if any. This versatile system also provides the reloader with a much more consistent way to monitor the overall length of their reloads, allowing the reloader to build more precision into their handloads, that translates into better groups at the range and more meat in the freezer.

Designed to be used with the Hornady Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator and the Hornady Lock-N-Load Overall Length Gauge (Sold Separately)
