If you’re looking to smoothly reload bullets, the new addition of a smooth radius into the mouth of each bullet shell holder around the shell plate helps ensure smooth reloading. Especially when the shell plate is used with the Lock N Load Case Feeder. In addition, the angle on the retainer spring notch helps keep the spring set up when embeddings cases into the shell plate. These shell plates will also work with the older model Hornady Pro-Jector press. Which is a huge plus. This shell plate works with; 30 Luger, 9mm Luger, 9X21, 9X18 Makarov, 38 Super Auto, 9X23.
I’ve reloaded more than 10,000 rounds using this shellplate over the last couple of years, both before and after the addition of the EZ-Ject system to the LnL press. The shell plates work great and make it easy to swap calibers.
My only suggestion is to keep a few drops of oil on it between reloading sessions. These shell plates do have a tendency to rust if you don’t keep a bit of oil on them – but they will stay looking like new if you do.
In summary, I am very happy with the entire LnL system for reloading; which obviously includes these shell plates.
