    Today at work there were announcing the possibilities of lay offs... I just started this job in August and feared I would be the one who got the pink slip. Luckily enough I am not receiving the slip and will be holding my job. Also I mentioned earlier in a post about stuff I got at an estate sale. I ened up selling 2 presses and some of the powder as it did not suit my needs. I was also going to get a blue press for Christmas but a member here led me to the Hornady promotion. The wife and I talked about it and decided that it was the better deal. So last Friday while I was at work she ordered me the LNL AP and a new set of 9mm dies so I could get the 1100 bullets. She just told me today because UPS will be showing up with my new toy tomorrow while she is at work and I am home making dinner for the kids. I about pooped my pants. She not only got me the press but new dies and 1100 bullets. I am going with 7mm for all the bullets as they are the best value. I also moved in October to a new place and no long need to use my step dads house to reload at. So when the LNL AP shows up I will be posting some pics of my man cave. Just wanted to update you all on things as it is a scary world out there and you never know what will happen next.

    Congrats on the new press. I don't think you will be sorry about your choice of the Hornady LNL. I just got into reloading a few months back and ordered the same press. I loaded the 1000 free bullets in 223 and since have loaded few thousand rounds in 9mm and some more 223. Nice press, I am really happy with it. The warranty dept has been good so far too. No serious problems yet, but I did break my small primer seat so I emailed Hornady and they sent me a replacement right away. Same thing with the case retainer spring. Both times free of charge.

    Good luck with the LNL. :)

    Thanks all. The wife ordered the press from Midsouth as I had already scoped it to being the cheapest place I could find it.... She must actually pay attention to me.

    Holy Cr*p That is CHEEEEEP! Uh Oh I think maybe I'll slip up and buy one myself. At that price you can almost come out ahead with the free bullets..... Congrats!!!
