Homemade Case Feeder for the LnL - Complete System

I know there are many videos and pictures of homemade case feeders out there but I have yet to see a complete system for a LnL so I thought I would share mine that I just finished.

Total material cost = $93 that includes the shell plates

Check out the video here:

Thanks, guys So far, I've been able to try 9mm, 40S&W, 10mm Auto, 45ACP, and 223Rem and they all seem to feed equally well. I personally don't have any purpose to make it feed rifle cases beyond 223/5.56, but it could be easily adapted to feed 308 or 30-06 if one was so inclined.

Not knocking Hornady but it makes you wonder why they are charging almost $400 for their system (feeder plates included).... I guess the answer to that is "because they can". Obviously people are willing to pay for it.

Thanks again.

How much did you pay yourself per hour to design and build this? Did you include employer's taxes? Facility overhead? Income tax? Patent fees? Legal?

Very true... it is just hard for me to swallow paying $400 for the feeder when it isn't half the machine of what it is attached to (LnL press itself) and the LnL is approximately the same price. I love Hornady's press, and products for that matter, but $400 seems high to me even with all the other expenses taken into account.

Point made, however

Yeah... that was a great feeder and CHEAP! But for us Hornady LnL guys, just the collator doesn't do us much good.
