    I know there are a lot of videos and pics out there of homemade case feeders but I was never able to find any of a complete system for the Hornady LnL so I thought I'd share mine that I just finished.

    Check out the video here:

    Total material cost = $93 including the shell plates :)

    Thanks! :D It took me about a month (evenings in the garage) to get it in the shape in the video. However, most of that time was spent making jigs and special tools (and scratching my head) to fabricate the parts I needed from common garage tools. I think now that all that work is done I could make a system in a day or day and a half.

    Nice job GGG, maybe you should think about making your whole system?

    Hey GGGReloader, I just watched the video again and whilst not drinking beer it is even more impressive. If you dont want to patent it you might just spend a couple of days writing up instructions and templates and sell kits or instructions. (reloaders are guys that love to tinker and putting a kit together would be fun) kudos

    Thanks again, creektrails. I don't really think there's anything to patent... the system does the same thing as any other case feeder and not in any new groundbreaking way. However, I like the idea of the kit. I spent all the time making the jigs and special tools, I may as well use them. I'd love to help the fellow reloaders save a few bucks and get some self gratitude in the process. Maybe a kit with the "hard to make" parts and instructions with templates for the rest??
