What spare parts inventory to have for Hornady progressive press?
Since I got this new Hornady L-N-L progressive press about 6 weeks ago, I have broken an indexing pawl and a case retaining spring.
Hornady Customer Service replaced these parts, and a few others including a bent primer guide rod that was too short from the factory....
The free replacement parts from Hornady Customer Service took 5 business days to arrive at my home.
Anyway, so I am now going to stock a few extra parts for the press so I will not be down and not be able to reload for 5 or more days. Some of the parts are not easy to find, however.
I found the following from midwayusa:
* Decapping pins (four - die related)
* Indexing pawls (two)
* Shell holder case retaining springs (three)
* Powder measure spring (two)
* Primer shuttle spring (two)
* Hub assembly - aliminum (out of stock)
Are there any other spare parts I should have on hand? Is there a better place to get spare parts? Hornady does not sell directly to the public; right?
