My goodness, I am a newb to reloading and am in awe of some of these. I have a really nice set up but hardly any inventory. I couldn't imagine having that much money wrapped up into it.

Most of the gear

I will say reloading IS an addiction…

I started around 1982/83 and used the RCBS RCII I STILL have on the bench. You look at the last photos I posted a few back and you can see it right behind the RCBS Pro 2000 press.
Also in the photos are as follows:
(Starting at the shotshell presses)
MEC 600Jr – 12ga
MEC 600Jr – 16ga
MEC Sizemaster – 12ga (Limited Ed Zombie Press)
MEC 9000GN – 20ga
MEC 9000GN – 12ga
Hornady 366 with gas assist – 12ga (Best crimps come from this press)

Brass Presses:
Hornady LNL with case feeder and bullet feeder (Now they sell it as the ammo plant)
Hornady LNL Powered Case Prep Center (LOVE this)
RCBS Pro 2000
RCBS RCII
Hornady LNL Classic single stage
Hornady LNL Classis single stage
Forster Co-Ax
Dillon RL550B loaded with all accessories.

Also Hornady Magnum sonic cleaner & Hornady basic sonic cleaner
Hornady manual case trimmer
Hornady concentricity gauge
Forster case check center
Hornady electronic scale model GS 350
Hornady electronic scale model 1500
Hornady electronic bench scale
Hornady powder/scale electronic system
Rampro Ammo Check station universal gauge (GET one of these as soon as you can, this thing is great!)

Anyhow that is the equipment that is in the photos… Once the entire room is done I will post full room photos and I spend 75% of my time in this area..

Back in the olden days, "aristocrats" would turn wood on a foot treadle lathe for the fun of it. I think we got them there "aristocrats" beat by a fair piece no matter the measure.

Oops!


The picture is after the half hearted repairs.
Lag bolts no beno! I ripped my press off my bench trying to size cast bullets I made too hard.
Since I have through drilled the bench, made steel plates for the under side of the bench, installed a brass plate at the leading edge of the press, through bolted everything and 86ed most of my linotype in trade for soft lead for casting bullets.
One lesson not forgotten soon!

Yea, that's exactly why my benchtop is maple butcher block instead of the 1/2" mdf that came with the bench. Ripped my press right off the bench sizing hard cast 44 mag bullets.

Butcher block is very good for a bench top but so is a section of heavy, thick, solid core door. Got mine from a renovated hospital. You know how big those doors are? Heavy as hell. Have to use 3-4 hinges with bearings in them. Anyway, they make good bench tops. Go to a local Habitat Restore location if you have any and you can find all kinds of things that can be re-purposed for your reloading bench, shelving and storage of supplies, etc.

When I built my current bench a co-worker had a solid core door laying around, from a renovated hospital, that he gave to me. I've had over 600lbs on the bench before and I bet I could have put another 1000 on it.

It's built from 3/4 inch thick, yeah laminated particle board.

The whole desk only cost me $40 so it's all good, it's an old bankers desk.

I seriously doubt I'll ever rip the press off of it again.

My main helper, my oldest Gdaughter. I told her that since she was shooting so much of my ammo she needed to help load it. She loved it! So after a couple 3 hours of watching and helping her I turned it over to her. She loaded 400 rnds of .357. Good kid, most of the time. She's 11.5, God save her Mom, she's gonna be a handful.

Here's my setup after about 2yrs of loading. Not nearly as nice and stocked as most of you guys but it suits me well.

Metallic reloading bench


Shotshell reloading bench and brass storage.


Measly ammo stash.


And of course the awesome 12ga and 20ga Christmas lights.

Just curious if the roaster is for food or do you use it to plate cast bullets or some other task?

It is an old one I used to use to lube cast bullets when I used those, now it has not been used in a few years... In fact I tossed it away last week...
