Hornady Shellplate #8


March 1, 2013, 08:16 PM
Hi everyone,

New to reloading (terrible time to start) and trying to get everything I need. I am looking for hornady lnl shellplate 8, but cant find it anywhere. Anybody know of a website thas has any in stock, besides ebay. I dont want to pay $75 to $100 for an item that goes for $30-$40. I know supply is scarce but there is a line and over 100% mark up is ridiculous.

Welcome to the club. The #8 isn't anywhere to be found. I have scoured the internet many times and checked every local store I could find. I'm not willing to pay what they're asking for on eBay, just like you, so I put one on backorder and I'm waiting it out. Good luck.

I guess i will have to do the same.

I'll check - I might acutally have an extra one!

Yes, I have 2x #8's and one #6 Shell Plates, new and in the box!

Don't know why when I started I had so many shell plates but my mistake might help someone!

I'm in Oceanside CA so let me know what I can do to help out!

Nice of nojoke to help you out.

I have been looking for a #8 for about 1.5 years. I have never seen one at my local Cabelas and did not want to back order one.

I called Hornady and they said the only way I can get one is to back order it.:fire:

I have been unable to load 9mm on my LNL for as long as I have owned it!

I back ordered it on Midway 3 months ago.......:barf:

I've had one on back order with Midway for a good while too. I've had a couple back ordered items come in stock well ahead of when they projected so hopefully that happens for you.

I have a #8 shell plate that I'd gladly trade for a #45 shell plate (for 45ACP) if anyone is interested. I will also have an additional #8 shell plate in my hands within the next couple days. I don't mind letting it go for what I paid for it (retail price - I don't believe scalping / taking advantage of the panic). If anyone is interested in a swap please let me know. I really want the #45 shell plate to complete my reloading setup!

Thanks a lot no joke. This place is great. So much useful info and people willing to help.

I have a #8 that's for the press with the wire case ejector. I upgraded to the new base and use the plates with the groove on the bottom.

Available for list price plus mailing. PM me if interested.

I'll check back this afternoon in order of replies here.
