Hornady Heavyweight, Lock-N-Load® Iron Press® offers

Hornady designed the Lock-N-Load® Iron Press® to be the heaviest and most rigid press in its class. Driven with a spring-assisted 1-1/8-inch solid steel ram, this single-stage unit is perfect for anyone who demands precision and repeatability from their reloading press.

This 28-pound vise is a workhorse built to exceptionally tight tolerances and a smooth operating system designed for consistent accuracy year after year. The iron press features Hornady’s patented Lock-N-Load® bushing system, which ensures dies and bushings are securely locked into place with a simple twist that engages six locking lugs.

Switching is easy when reloaders need to switch to another cartridge size. Simply turn the die counter-clockwise, remove it, and insert your next default Lock-N-Load® die and bushing. Dies locked into their Lock-N-Load® bushings stay just as they are, perfectly aligned and ready for their turn in the press.

The unit also features a patented casing support platform that allows the operator to de-prime a casing, remove the casing for chamfering or deburring, then quickly replace and prime the casing. The Iron Press accessory platform allows quick access to bullet trays or cases and storage for beveling and deburring tools, case neck brushes, primer cavity cleaners and more.

The gravity-fed self-priming system, sold separately or as part of the kit, blurs the lines between progressive and single-stage recharging by allowing more processes to occur simultaneously. The machine upgrade includes the automatic priming system, large and small feeder tubes, large and small feeder pickup tubes, feeder housing tubes, feeder catch trays, and a small parts bag.
