Hornady-LNL Concentricity Tool

This tool identifies and eliminates bullet run out (or wobble). Just place ammunition in the tool, roll it, identify run out and use the dial indicator thumbscrew to adjust.


  • Universal centers ensure precise alignment of most bottleneck cartridges from 22 cal up to 45 cal.
  • Easy-to-use precision adjustment knobs allow you to true up the run out on any cartridge.
  • Sturdy frame can be bolted to your bench

Provides improved accuracy for hand loaders, and can be used to true up factory ammo too.



When making loads for precision shooting, hand loaders want to remove as much inconsistency as possible. We go through steps such as weighing every charge, keeping brass separated by times fired, and ensuring there is as small a variation in projectiles as possible. Even when these and other steps are followed, even when we take every care to be consistent with our reloading process, there is another issue that can arise. Concentricity.

Concentricity, in layman’s terms, is how symmetrical the case and bullet are along a line that would follow the center of the cartridge. The goal in measuring concentricity is to ensure that the bullet is perfectly in line with your rifle’s bore. Some shooters may argue they have never measured concentricity and their bullets fire just fine. That may be true. The bore and barrel are more than capable of changing the movement of the bullet so that it leaves the barrel. But if the bullet is way out of concentricity two issues may arise. First, it is unlikely that the bore was able to fix the bullet’s path in such a way that would be consistent with every other round you fire. Secondly, since the bullet was forced into the correct path, it most likely received undue stress or damage. Both of these factors can cause your loads to have lessened accuracy.

It is for this reason many precision shooters will use concentricity tools. These tools help identify if your bullet isn’t being held in such a way that is concentric to the rest of the cartridge. One option available is the Hornady Concentricity tool. This tool has an adjustable universal style shell holder and spring loaded bullet steading device that fits cartridges from .22 to .45 caliber. Those two items hold the cartridge steady so that as you roll it, the measuring gauge can show you any variation in the bullet’s concentricity. After you have identified the bullet runout, there is a screw with a rubber end that can be used to correct the bullet, ensuring concentricity.
