    Here we can discuss the comparison review by Jose Gardner and ask questions about his findings when considering the Hornady Lock-N-Load AP progressive loader for PRS type precision ammo.

    Great video, definitely not the results I was expecting. What are you doing about the case lube on the loaded rounds?

    I was chatting with Jose during his testing and the results were super surprising to me. Great data to see!

    I used Hornady one shot spray on lube. So I spray on lightly and don’t really do anything about the lube.

    Jose, never any issues with pressure signs from chamber build up?

    Never. I spray rather lightly. and the hornady lube flashes off. by the time Ive sized and start seating, the brass doesn't even feel lubed. I know various shooters around here that use the hornady spray lube for that very reason.

    Interesting, I know you let it dry before sizing, so it just seems if its there for the sizing, it would be there in the chamber.

    I would agree with that logic for sure. I've never really thought too hard about it. it's how I was taught by an experienced reloader, and how I've done it since. I did try to go cheap once and bought some lyman spray lube. that lube most definitely didn't not flash off, to the point I wouldn't even charge bullets with it on. it felt super gunky. I would have to tumble after sizing. I quickly switched back to Hornady and have had no further issues.

    Nice job Jose. Is the flap on the shell feeder to tap the top of the primer tube to ensure the primers feed correctly?

    no. there will be a follow up more direct review of the press itself. in such, I will address the fact that the primer follower rod actually ends up hitting, and even catching on, the brass feeder when the primer tube has between 80-100 primers or so in it. so the flap diverts the rod until the primer tube empties a bit.
