In this video I reload .223 with Hornady 75 grain HPBT bullets under 25.2 grains of Hodgdon's BL-C(2) powder. All equipment used in this video is listed below:

Tumbler: Thumler's Tumbler Model B High Speed
Single Stage Press: Hornady Lock-N-Load Single Stage Press
Trimmer: Hornady Cam Lock Trimmer
Case Prep: Hornady Case Prep Trio (chamfer, de-burr & pocket cleaner)
Progressive Press: Hornady Lock-N-Load Auto Progressive
Powder Drop: Hornady Case Activated Powder Drop - came with press
Scale: Hornady Lock-N-Load Bench Scale

Q: Why do I prime all my cases at once instead of using the progressive press progressively?
A: It allows me to pre-process all my brass so I always have a constant supply of cases that need nothing more than powder dropped and bullets seated. This allows me to work up different loads very quickly and efficiently.
