    Hornady LnL AP Overhang?

    Hello All,

    I'm considering the purchase of a Hornady Lock N Load AP reloading press, and I'm hoping someone who already owns one can help me out with some information.

    My reloading bench is in a closet with bi-fold doors. I'd like to be able to mount the press in such a way that I can close the closest doors without having to move the press every time. So, if I drill mounting holes for the press 2.25" back from the leading edge (as described in the instructions) does anyone know what the maximum overhang past the leading edge of the bench will be for the entire press assembly? We can assume that the handle will be in the up position for this measurement, since I won't need to operate the handle with the doors are closed.

    I'm simply trying to determine if any mods will be needed for the bench.

    Thanks!

    Brian

    Is that the "Lock n Load Classic"? A single stage press? I can measure mine, if you like, I have that one. If its another model, I dont know if it will do you any good

    Actually the one I'm looking at is the auto-indexing progressive press, not the classic.

    But thanks very much for the offer.

    I took this pic without completely understanding your question, but it may still help.

    I just re-measured, and from the front of the bench, the farthest protrusion of any part of the press is within 5-1/2 inches.

    For reference, the back of the press' mounting flange is 4 inches from the front of the bench (which is what the photo illustrates).
