What's Your TITAN Advantage?....WE RELOAD!
***Your Reloading Specialists***
The Titan Crew wants to THANK YOU for your patience during this current product supply shortage. All of our 'Out Of Stock' items are on back order with our suppliers and they are working hard to catch up to the sudden increased interest in reloading. The good news is that the folks there are holding up well and production is steady. We have been getting inventory on a regular basis. Use the notify system in our product listings for stock updates.
We are truly enjoying all the friends we have made through Titan Reloading and look forward to many more. Feel free to contact us. When possible, please email us rather than call. Due to our limited phone system and staff we are able to respond to your questions quicker via email. Please include your full name or order ID number with any order inquiries. Service and Support is our top priority. As always, you will find many answers to questions in the "FAQ" and "Help Videos" areas of our website www.titanreloading.com . Check us out on YouTube .

Hornady Lock-N-Load AP
Progressive reloading that’s smooth, precise and fast.
With a single pull of the handle, you’ll feel the difference between this high-performance machine and ordinary reloading presses. You’ll feel the smooth responsiveness, the rugged construction, and most of all, the power! The Power-Pac Linkage System literally multiplies and accelerates the leverage you apply to the handle. And since the AP features automatic indexing, priming and ejection, every pull of the handle give you a precisely loaded round.
Lock-n-Load Powder Measure (pistol and standard metering assemblies)
Case Activated Powder Drop
Primer Pickup Tubes (large and small)
5 Lock-n-Load die bushings
All you need are dies and shell plates to start loading with your AP™!
Quick Change Lock-N-Load® Bushing System
Lock-N-Load® AP™ has a 5-station quick change bushing system that allows quick and easy change overs from 223 to 45 in less than 5 minutes.
Quick Change Metering Inserts
The Lock-N-Load® powder measure uses quick change metering inserts that allow you to switch from one powder to another with the push of a button. Add one to each die set for the ultimate in quick change overs.
Reliable EZject™ System
The EZject™ feature delivers 100% reliable ejection of every cartridge, every time, without any adjustments.
Universal Case Retainer Spring
The ingenious case retainer spring allows you to quickly and easily remove or insert a case at any point in the loading process.
The Lock-N-Load® AP™ System can be changed from large to small primers as easy as 1-2-3:
- Change the primer seater punch.
- Change the primer shuttle.
- Change the primer feed tube.
Case Activated Powder Drop
Case activated powder drop will dispense a powder charge only when a cartridge case is present.
Each station moves half a stage on the down stroke and half on the up stroke, making for ultra smooth functioning. This process is much smoother than presses that do all their indexing on the down stroke.
INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:
Cartridge Overall Length (O.A.L.) Determined
The overall length (o.a.l.) listed on the drawings in Lee's Modern Reloading is the SAAMI (Small Arms Ammunition Manufacturers Institute) specification. Most of the load data in the book was supplied to Lee by the powder manufactures. One can exceed the recommended maximum overall length as long as it doesn't interfere with the function of the rifle. If your rifle will not accept ammunition loaded to a longer o.a.l. choose a different bullet/powder combination.
There are many tools on the market to determine the "free bore" of your particular rifle. This is the distance from the face of the bolt to the lands of the barrel. A handy way to determine this without such equipment is to use a fine marking pencil and a cleaning rod. Use something to make the internal portion of the threads of the cleaning rod blunt so that a tip of a bullet cannot go into the concave portion. Even a piece of Duct tape will suffice temporarily. With the bolt out of the gun and the bullet you intend to use placed and held up against the lands and grooves of the barrel, place your cleaning rod in from the muzzle until you feel it stop against the tip of the bullet. Mark this spot on the cleaning rod from the muzzle end. Remove the bullet and repeat the procedure with the bolt in and closed. The distance between the two marks will be a close indicator of the maximum Cartridge Overall Length for that particular bullet.
There are tools available that are more accurate but I have used the above method for years to get very close to where I needed to be.
