First Look: Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel

First Look: Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel

The new Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel works in conjunction with the Hornady Ammo Plant. The control panel is essentially a sensor that works in conjunction with multiple parts of a press.

An audible and visual alarm gives alerts on several key aspects of the reloading process, such as the powder hopper and primer hopper availability.


Also, when the sensor encounters a problem in the reloading process, such as a double-charged or under-charged load, the control panel will automatically stop the press. It will even count how many finished cartridges have been produced in a given session.



The Hornady Lock-N-Load Control Panel comes in several configurations depending on your equipment, and will be available in spring of 2014.

Check out more information in our exclusive video from the 2014 SHOT Show.
