They're 20mm cans, and while the SeaWhiz uses a 20mm cannon, the A-10 uses a GAU-8 30mm (though it was originally designed around a 20mm Vulcan; this version, the YA-10, never left the experimental stage).

Ding, ding, ding, ding. Yup, 20mm ammo cans. I got them on a special from the Sportsman's Guide around 1990.

My setup isn't much but it works. I recently moved in to a Townhouse for a little while until we find something else, so I am jammed in the basement with just about everything else we own, but I made it work.

Here's my setup

Ok, I guess its finally time to reveal my setup. I've been meaning to do it for a while but just kept putting it off. Anyways here it is. At the moment, I live in a 1 bedroom apartment so I had to keep it small. Works for now until I get a place of my own (hopefully soon!)

I started with a decent workbench section from one of the big box hardware stores. Then added 2 layers of indoor 3/4 ply to the top to bolt the reloader to. I am VERY surprised just how solid this setup is.

The top drawer of the cabinet is the sort of the catchall drawer. A couple reloading books, dies, shellholders, trimmer, ammo boxes, and primer tubes. The bottom section has primers, brass, and bullets on the top shelf, and cleaning stuff, empty containers, powder, and a little more brass.

Reload and shoot with targets every 100 yards out to 700













And a 1600 yard range for all my shooting needs.

Agreed! That setup is insane! Look at my little measly setup above his. I am more than supremely jealous! Well time to go switch out my drooling towel

That's quite a range, huntinco. Nice reloading room too. Not much that big Ammomaster can't handle, and that looks like an annealing station, that isn't very common either.
Well done.

You cant see the rest in the pics but I built a 8' x 52 loft in my barn. The reloading room takes up 16' of that. In the rest of he space I put in a small office, kitchen, table bunk beds. All that's missing is a 60" flat screen TV & to install my 120x optical camera so I watch my hits on TV

It's not charcoal. That's shredded tires for the bullet catching boxes (which are faced with wood for attaching the targets).
