    This picture is a little dated as you can see from the custom C.O.L gage mounted on the front edge and the old style case trimmer on the wall, but it still looks pretty much the same today.:D


    A view of the work area of the room. As you can see it is usually quite peaceful in there. The only place in the house the wife won`t go and a man and his best friend can relax.

    Mine has not changed much from this pic - about a year or two ago - just way more chaotic!

    Only problem is - it is the other half of my office area and so - way too easy to be tempted sometimes to get off puter and go load some stuff!

    Doesn’t get much simpler than this. Lee Anniversary Starter kit and a cleaned off bench in the barn (sort of). Been loading for two weeks now and can’t imagine that I’d need anything else. Naw…

    Here's mine

    Made it from Unistrut about 25 years ago, and the top is 2 x 12's bolted to the metal.

    Dear bigger jon:

    I couldn't help but notice that you also cast your own bullets, which is something I used to do. The question I have for you is : do you do this inside? The reason I ask is that I ran into a guy who was at a pistol club I used to belong to, and he was bald, and talked kind of slow, and apparently he did a LOT of lead smelting and bullet casting in his garage. As a result got a pretty bad case of lead poisioning that had made him bald and messed up his brain somewhat, and I wouldn't want ANYBODY to end up the way he did. I was relatively lucky in that fluxing the lead was a relatively smoky process when I first started, so I built a fan to take the smoke from the lead pot outside, and in later years I just did all my casting at work in a lab hood on my lunch hour. If you don't have VERY good ventilation in your shop, you might want to think about setting up a small bume hood with a blower, and it probably wouldn't hurt to get your blood checked for lead levels. Good luck and stay safe!!

    This is about how it looks normally. I try to keep my work spaces clean, but I admit the ammo pile is pretty tapped down in this shot. When I get back I will have to take a new picture. I have added some shelves, and another light just like the one I have now.

    I believe it is a RCBS Pro 2000
  20. Peter M. Eick

    Yes it is a pro2000. Its a good press and I have made about 150,000 rounds out of it so far. I bought it for the aps primer strips because I don't like the idea of primers in a tube. No complaints so far.

    To bad RCBS does not bring out a model 2007 that is a 7 holer that is more in direct competition to the 650. I would not mind a few more die holes and an automatic case feeder.
