LNL AP Primer Function

Post by DR on 10/30/2011, 8:22 pm

Anyone ever had a primer detonate with the LNL AP?

I have googled Dillon 650 detonations, but have not found any with the LNL AP. Also, I will be using the quite facinating RCBS Lock-Out die.

Or, is hand priming in order for safety?

The Dillon priming systems are safe and I assume the Hornady systems as well. As with anything, especially when one ignores warning signs, anything can happen. I would not consider hand priming pistol primers due to a perceived safety issue. I do use Winchester primers in my progressives. There is talk that Federal primers are more sensitive than the other brands.

As in shooting, it is always a good idea to wear safety glasses, and some feel, even hearing protection while reloading. I've never had a problem in many years of loading, but one cannot buy replacement eyeballs...at least not yet.

I just finished loading my first 1000 on the LNL. No issues. From what I see the main thing to keep in mind is that it seats the primer on the up-stroke so you have to ensure that you go fully through the upward motion and don't get one half seated.

Any issue and the advancing mechanism sticks which is an immediate warning sign. It is also very easy to just take the shell plate off if there is any real issue.
