    The one thing that is most important in building a bench, I can speak of this from years of reloading and having 13 presses set up and running, is a SOLID BENCH... NO give at all in any operation. If you can get that done/built you will see a world of difference.

    I'm talking rock solid from starting stroke to the finishing of the handle going back to start... Trust me on this one everyone... Make sure or do whatever you have to so that bench don't move, flex anything but stay still!..;)

    How very true. You need a solid bench. I had a chance to load 45 ACP on a Dillon 1000 which was mounted to a steel bench. There is nothing like it. You knew when the primer was seated & if you crushed any carbon doing it.

    I'm with enine- but have bench. All current items fit in said toolkit, except I need to narrow it down to Universal and RL22 for powders. I have a number of other powders, but this is my "bug-out"/Range-kit set. I use the Lee Hand Press exclusively, but have the Breechlock Challenger in the basement if I want to free up a hand for moving shells to-and-from the press.

    Thought I'd update, since I took slightly better pictures. Here is my simple set up in our bedroom closet. I have a good wife.

    Here's an update of mine. Still working on it, but I'm actually to the point where I can reload there now. Need a little organizer with clear drawers for small bits and going to add another shelf. There's a second wall of pegboard that's going up on the left side soon. Plenty of space for my needs (just not for my wants)...

    Hey now, I've already laid claim to the name Bug Out Reloading Kit or BORK for short :)

    An option for those who do not want build their own. I bought this at Costco. It is on wheels, but it is absolutely stable. No movement during reloading. It has locking cabinets, lots of storage, and a nice, thick, oak working surface. Assembly was straight forward, and no parts were missing.[​IMG]

    Looks like a good one.

    Thats nice, I'd like to have the ability to wheel around. Great that it doesn't sacrifice stability. Ive pondered the idea of putting heavy duty wheels/casters on my reloading stand.

    Here is my reloading bench, just added the small side where the press is mounted. Now I have some more room to prep the brass and to clean my guns.

    I just finished up a new bench, no rounds have been loaded on this bench yet. There are still some tool heads and stuff that need to be brought over to get this thing all buttoned up. Two 550B's and a rock chucker. 550's are set up for small and large primers, have tool heads with powder throwers already set up for .40, .45, .44mag, .223 and 30-06, soon to add 30.30, maybe 9mm and .260rem if I get around to building one.

    I've had my eye on that Costco workbench for a couple of years now, but all our moves keep me from stepping up yet. Nice to see it works well for reloading, I'm going to get one when I can and consign the custom benches to the garage.

    I recently added the storage cabinet on the right side and the shelf for brass above my reloading/firearm work bench.

    I currently load 260 rem, 260 AI, 6.5 Grendel, 223, 35 Rem, and 9mm luger.

    That is a very nice set up. It doesn't take a huge bench to make good ammunition.

    When we built the new house, I added a room, under air, in the garage. It's tight in there, but I have all of the goodies. The builders, called it my "time out" room.
