After processing several hundred rounds of 9mm on the Hornady LNL AP with the Case Feeder, I experience cases jamming up in the feed funnel as well as cases bouncing off of the feed ramp. I found this to be a bit frustrating but it made me experiment with a couple of ideas. I tried black tape, that kind of worked but I could not see the cases, then I tried taping a piece of clear plastic on, then I found a piece of .750 Polycarbonate tubing. I cut off 1.5 inches on the lathe, then ran it through the CNC machine to make it in the shape of a “C” and found that it clamps on to the feed tube really nicely. (Case Feed Cage)
I also found that if I added a piece of 1/4 in tubing to the case feeder, I would eliminate the traffic jams caused by cases passing on the upper edge of the feeding plate. The easy installation just requires you to drill a 5/32 hole in the case feeder 1/2 inch from the top and inline with the right hand edge of the case feeder motor housing. It works great for the pistol cases and can be tipped up and out of the way when processing rifle cases. This comes with a Stainless Steel bolt and a nylon locking nut.
So I made a few extras of each if you would like to order one for your self or a friend. I believe that many other hand loaders would also like to reduce the case feeding issues that they experience and get back to loading.
