45 – HTC Powder Transfer Unit for Hornady LNL / AP Platform
After introduction of 45-HTC PTU for Dillon presses I’ve been asked about similar one for Hornady's presses. Since I have no experience using this platform, I've been reluctant to machine parts for it. However after several conversations with reloaders using it, I took a "plunge", and here it is.
Like its Dillon's brother, this particular PTU is specially designed for loading for 45 ACP caliber using cast lead bullets, both naked lead or Hi-Tek Coated and sized to .451"-.452". Expander portion of this PTU is sized to provide enough case expansion to prevent shaving lead and/or polymer coating. Length of the expander portion provides for minimum swaging of the bullet's base, - it is almost three times longer than the standard .45 PTU.

This item works great in the Hornady powder drop system. Another fine product from Alex
