    Nice review, Hunter!

    Too bad the old shell plate won't work with the new system, I have all of them already and the new system looks like something I'd like to consider, but I really didn't want to have to buy more new parts. I guess I just might have to. How do you make the changeover? Is it a DIY or a send it to the factory improvement?

    I think I read you could send your old style shellplates back to Hornady and they'd put the grooves in them needed to work with the new system. Might check with Hornady.

    The last I heard it was going to cost $100.00 to have Hornady change a LNL over to the new ejection system which included cutting two shell plates. Extra plates cost $10.00 each to cut. Nothing firm, just what I've read multiple places. I'm still trying to decide if I want to get my press "updated".

    Thank God I'm not retired yet!

    I've often said that my reloading will start when I have the time, after retirement, and as long as Hornady keeps improving their press, and Hunter keeps giving us the "low-down", then I'll be set up, when the time comes.

    Thanks for another great review, my friend!

    I decided not to make the change. Since modifying the 9mm shell plate, I've not had any problems. 45 and 38 Special's have always worked fine. It was the 9mm shellplate I had problems with the cases binding up on the ejection wire. A little "Dremel work" and the 9mm shell plate is fine.

    I could make all of the changes in my home shop.....except fot that dadgum "warranty" word.

    I suspect that any non factory mods would void it.

    Hey Huntetr!!!

    How about posting a "link" to the review. I'm not very good on the Ol' PC and couldn't find it.
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Dumb me figured it out!!!

    That was a great review Hunter. But truthfully, all you did was make me in a hurry to get my conversion kit that I ordered 3 weeks ago. Any word on how production is going?

    I ordered that press Dec 28th and it took about a month for it to arrive...but I love it.

    My only complaint is that the shell plate that I ordered from Cabelas for the .45 doesn't work all that well with the ezject. It will spit out maybe 1 out of 5 rounds smoothly, otherwise I have to grab it off of there.

    I think that there is a dedicated plate for the .45acp now vs. the 'multi caliber' one.
    (don't quote me but i think for the .45 shell plate #45 is what you want, i have #1 which works for the time being, but not as smooth)
