Hornady LNL AP problem please help.

So I have a new LNL AP and the shell plate does not advance all the way to the next station. I have to manually index the plate the last fraction of an inch. This is an out of the box problem. I'm new to progressives. What do I do?

Look in the instruction manual, and find the part where it talks about adjusting the indexing pawls. Sounds like thats your problem.

If the shell plate isn't indexing forward enough with the ram going up adjust the right pawl out a 1/4 turn until the the shell plate detents click in place. If the problem is when the ram going down adjust the left pawl out a 1/4 turn until its right.

If you still have problems call Hornady they will walk you through it.

If you don't figure it out tonight from the manual, (a little adjustment goes a long way), call Hornady tomorrow, they'll walk you through it. You'll kick yourself when you realize how easy it is.

When I got my LnL, the directions said the pawls were adjusted at the factory.

They weren't.

I had to adjust the pawl engagement before the press worked the first time.

The instruction sheet is helpful on the matter of pawl adjustment. Not good on other stuff, but good on this.

Adjust your pawls. You'll get a good feel of it once you start messing around with it.

Proceed with confidence.

The manual also calls for a tiny bit of grease to be placed on the bottom of the shell plate. This won't fix the alignment problem but is mentioned here more as a reminder.

On this matter, I have found Hornady One Shot Cleaner Lubricant (not to be confused with One Shot Case Lubricant) to be perfect for cleaning and lubricating the shell plate and deck of the press. Since it's a dry lubricant, it doesn't attract dirt and grime like a grease.

Great idea. Wonder if it is good for the ram as well?
