Well, I was living in the future, then it was the past, but will be again in… oh hell with it.
Anywho, I loaded up 60 rounds of 10mm this weekend and was having an issue with the Hornady Lock ‘N Load. The ejector wire kept binding up on some rounds and instead of just knocking them off into the bin would fling them into another time zone. This action would shake the press, sending powder out of the charged case and into every nook and cranny it could find. This would mean I’d have to dump that case, take it out of rotation, rotate two stations so I could put it back where it could get recharged, and then have holes in the process.
This slows a reloader down.
Because I’m not one to just sit there and take it, I did a simple search for ‘Hornady ejector wire’. Lo and behold, the future hit me square in the face with the Interweb tubes being filled with others experiencing the same issue. Several resolutions were offered with everything from pulling out the Dremel and grinding down the trailing surfaces of the shell plate to simply moving the wire a bit up or down.
Information that would have been neigh impossible to hunt down, even in a library, is now available for anyone who has a few bucks for the monthly fee.
Can’t wait to get home and try it out.
