i want to get a case activator and hook up my hornady lnl powder measure to a lee load master, I am looking to load 223 9mm and 45 auto, out side of the case activator its self

what all will i need, my guess is ptx expanders for 45 and 9mm but other then that i am clueless

I would recommending not going with the hornady ptx expanders and get a powder funnel from powderfunnels.com. they work universally with most size cases but my main reasoning is that i have had cases sort of stick in the hornady ptx on the downstroke.

What you have listed should be good to go. Make sure the case activated die comes with the linkage and the case expander adjustment bar.

You might want to make sure you get everything to make the powder drop work case activated, the kit costs $70 IIRC, the $30 die doesn't include the linkage and required powder drop extension

$55 at midway

If you want to bell case mouths as your charging them you'll want the expander linkage/stop that Hornady offers as well.

Looks like this.
