Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Powder Measure — efficiency and accuracy
The Lock-N-Load® powder measure offers the most flexible operation and the widest range of any powder measure. It ranges from .5 - 265 grains of powder (special metering inserts and rotor required). Metering inserts can be changed with the push of a button. Comes with standard rotor and metering insert.
Largest Charge Range in the Industry
Go from .5 grain to 265 grains by simply changing rotor and inserts. Use one Lock-N-Load® Powder Measure for reloading everything from small pistol cartridges to large magnum rifle cartridges.
Push Button Release Function
To change metering inserts, just push the Lock-N-Load® insert release button and insert another metering insert. Simply verify the new charge and you're reloading again right away. Inserts can be swapped in seconds. Go from reloading 30-06 to 45 Auto in no time. Keep the preset inserts with your die sets.
With only .002" clearance between the drum and rotor, it's the tightest in the industry for a standard measure. This tight tolerance helps eliminate powder binding between the frame and drum, delivering smooth function with all types of propellant–extruded or ball.
Multiple Mounting Methods
Mount to your bench using a standard mounting bracket and lock ring, or use our Lock-N-Load® bushings to mount this versatile measure on the Fast Load Powder Measure Stand or on the Lock-N-Load® AP™ with case activated powder drop for automatic powder measuring during reloading.
The O-ring on the metering insert adjustment lets you put a slight amount of tension on the metering unit to make fine, incremental adjustments. Once you've set your charge, tighten the lock ring to secure the setting.
Small & Larger Drop Tubes
These tubes speed up powder flow. Two drop tubes are provided standard for .204 to 45 caliber loads. Use the largest drop tube that fits the case mouth. An optional extended drop tube is also available.
