Output Assembly:
The Output Assembly securely attaches to the top of the Dropper by means of the Spring Adaptor Cap, which attaches and disconnects easily from the top of the dropper. The inner threading grips the coils of the spring firmly, preventing any chance of it coming loose during operation, and allowes a quick transition from one dropper to the next.

Output Assembly sizes:
Large: For 9mm, .40 cal. and .45 cal. – (T1577-01)
Small: For ALL Rifle and 9mm* – (T1577-01)
* Some lighter 9mm bullets may flow better in the Small Output Assembly.

Please Note: All pistol calibers use the same Output Tube, Lead Spring and Spring Adaptor Cap. So the Output Assembly (Large) is not included in the Conversion Kit, as you will not need a second one when changing pistol calibers.

The rifle calibers too share the same Output Assembly (Small), and so when converting from .223 to .308, the same output assembly is used.

However – if you intend to buy a Conversion Kit to convert a rifle unit to a pistol caliber, you must purchase the Output Assembly required, in addition to the Conversion Kit.
Spring Tube Extension for Output Assemblies:
The Case Feeder on all Hornady Lock-N-Load® AP™ presses (and older Dillon XL 650 presses †) is mounted so high that the Output Assembly needs a Spring Tube Extension. Extensions for both Large and Small Output Assemblies can be ordered from the drop-down menu below.

† If the rim of your XL 650 case Feed bowl measures approximately 38-1/2″ from the bench top (approximately 45″ if you have a Strong Mount), then you will need a Spring Tube Extension.

Spring Tube Extension Sizes:
Large: For 9mm, .40 cal. and .45 cal. – (T1577-04)
Small: For ALL Rifle and 9mm* – (T1577-05)
