View Full Version : Just bought a Hornady for $50

April 2, 2006, 01:49 PM
It's missing parts though. So I was wondering if you could tell me what all I need to replace as I have no clue as to what I'm doing.

online manual is here:

So far I know it's missing parts:

#2 primer tube assembly
#48 wad ram (#29 it's lock nut)
and it looks like its supposed to have 2 crimp starters but I can't tell which one it's missing.

Also is there supposed to be a tube for the shot/gunpowder? I can't find one on the manual and I don't think gunpowder is supposed to drop that far.

Thanks for any help you can give

You really should call Hornady and ask them to send you a manual. You will need it to order parts. You will also need it to set up the press for whatever hulls you will be using. And you are correct you need a "Powder drop tube", and a "wad ram" and whatever fasteners you may not have to hold them in place. As far as the crimp starter question, they come with a 6 and 8 point starter. Count the groves in the one you have and order the other one.
Your press is one of the newer models as indicated by the swing out wad guide among other things. It's not very old it just looks that way.
