Lock-N-Load® Iron Press™ and Iron Press™ Kit
The Hornady® Lock-N-Load® Iron Press™ represents the next evolution in single stage press technology. Featuring a heavy-duty cast iron frame, the 26-pound Iron Press™ is built to be the heaviest, strongest and most rigid press in its class. Tight manufacturing tolerances provide consistency and precision.

Sold separately or included with the Iron Press Kit, the hands-free gravity fed Automatic Priming System, combined with the intuitive Accessory Mounting Deck, increases reloading efficiency by allowing more processes to occur simultaneously. The Iron Press™ provides the unique ability to de-prime, pause and remove the case to perform any desired case prep action, then replace and prime.
