For those of you that use a Hornady Lock-n-Load

Postby Virginian » Sat Aug 25, 2012 9:32 am

I used my Bass Pro reward points this year and purchased a Hornady Lock-n-Load AP press. The red bin that comes with it for throwing bullets in is pretty handy. I looked on the usual places on the net for reloading supplies and they want anywhere from $6.99 to $6.25 for these bins.

I looked on the bin and they're made by a company called AkroBin. Googled them and found a company called zorotools.com that had them and many colors for $1.32 for the small (same size that came with Hornady), $3.14 for the medium size and $6.33 for the huge size.

Including two racks to hold them, the tab came to $130. I googled & zoro tools coupon, found a coupon for $30 off orders over $75, net I have a Ben Franklin tied up in this and it's been money well spent. I just clip these to my press when I'm reloading and go. I do a lot of casting and it provides a good place to store all my bullets and brass without overloading my reloading bench cabinet.

Crappy cell phone pic but you get the idea. I opted for the more manly colors! lol I hope this tip helps someone!

Very nice and organized. I really like it! I wish I had seen a pic of this a few months ago when I was doing my re-loading room. I would have definately went this way with the bullet and case storage. It's perfect!

I've stored the pictures somewhere up in my grey matter. I'll definitely try something similar when I get through my other jobs list (finish cattle yard, build implement shed, build house etc). Gonna be a while til I can stretch my reloading bench and reorganize, but those trays (or something very similar) will go up somewhere around the bench.
