    Help With Hornady AP Powder Set-up (Video)

    Iím an experienced reloader, but am setting up my first progressive press: Hornady AP for 9mm cartridges.

    Iíve got a problem with the powder system, and pretty obviously something is wrong about the set up. I took it apart and gave it a good cleaning and reassembled it, at the same time changing the rotor for pistol charges.

    The rotor isnít cycling the powder meter through itís full range.

    Please let me know whatís wrong with my setupÖ.

    Hereís a brief video

    Thanks,

    George

    I have no experience with the Hornady AP but over a decade with a Dillon 550. It looks like the travel is only about 19mm (9mm case length) and that is not enough to cycle the powder measure fully. Is there a way to make the case contact the powder drop at a lower point so it can cycle the powder measure fully. (lower that PM die to force it to contact earlier?)

    Alternatively, is there a different geometry arm that would work on the powder measure to force it through it's full stroke with the short movement of a pistol length case? (something that connects to the powder measure arm closer to its center?)

    Just spitballing here,

    Thanks

    Thanks for the responsesÖ.the video was extremely helpfulÖ.

    I needed to lower the powder measure into the pressÖbut also found that the meter was not inserted properly into the rotor, which kept it from cycling properly.

    All looks good!!
