So the only thing left to purchase is the easy access shellplate, reloading dies, appropriate case feeder plate, bullet feeder die, and any additional die bushings you’ll need.
The modern shellplates are compatible with the EZ-ject system. The EZ-ject system is not compatible with older versions of shellplates. Flipping a shellplate over and inspecting the underside for a circular groove can reveal whether or not it needs replacing. Even if there isn’t a groove already there, Hornady can make your existing shellplates compatible with the EZ-ject system.
Hints from Hornady Before using the press, make sure to spray all metal components with Hornady One Shot Gun Cleaner-Degreaser and Dry Lubricant (separately sold item # 270-323).
Hornady says to use One Shot Gun Cleaner-Degreaser and Dry Lubricant to clean the powder measure. This will get rid of any oils that could get into the powder.
