For me I am not sure if its more of a hobby or an obsession. It is calming, relaxing, and gratifying kinda all rolled into one.

I have a cabin in my backyard that until recently was my workshop. No more dirty business in there now that it's been converted to my ammo factory.

Mine is coming along. Actually used it to reload. My guns and I still have all our parts. That's a plus.


PWGUNNY and I have the same stool.

9mm fan- I've seen several other guys with the same stool. Must have been a popular seller at Sears.

stu1ritter - My bench sits in a corner of my woodworking shop. A pair of LnL AP's, one for small, the other for large cases. Second is the supply shelves and scales.
That seems to imply that changeovers are enough trouble or disturbance to settings to warrant two machines. I've never done a changeover on my LnL AP, so far dedicated to .45ACP. Did you get lucky or indeed feel it necessary to have two presses?



This is my LnL AP:

The changeover is a bit time consuming when you have a case feeder. There are different sized tubes, ends, etc for the large and small cases. The hardest part is the primer anvil that seats the primer. I was a Mercedes-Benz mechanic for 30 years and I'm pretty good at starting threads, in any position, upside down and backwards is no big deal. That little primer anvil gave me fits and, if you grease the press it is a greasy area, even when wiped down all the time, which increases the "fits" level. At my age (72) I thought I'd enjoy my reloading much more with two presses. I am now doing .32 and .38/.357 on one and .45ACP and .44 on the other. It now takes about 10 minutes to change a caliber where it was close to an hour (for me) to go from small to large cases/primers with one press.

I have 2 Dillon's, I use one for small primers, and one for large primers. I also have a Redding T-7 , that I use for critical loads ie. bench rest or small test runs, when I am working up a load.

Well it's nothing compared to most of the pictures here. Just got into reloading about 8 months ago. Have a Dillon 650 w/case feeder under the cover.

When my son sends me a photo from his iPhone, it always arrives upside down. I have to save it to my PC then flip it with the windows photo viewer. The solution is to turn the iPhone over to take a photo.

Just enough to shoot other calibers and give the high volume ones a rest.

Supplies still aren't what they need to be locally. But they are getting better....

Online supplies look better.
