Well that makes more sense.

3 blank stocks - Future projects??
2 ChargeMasters - did you reprogram for faster charging or slower for accuracy
1 AmmoMasterII press - looks like adapter for standard shell holders
Do you shoot a 50BMG? Think you do - Think I saw some H50BMG on shelf.

Yes - I creeped on pictures by enlarging - only because I'm very jealous of your setup.
I love to shoot 1000 yards and beyond.

Wow you guys are good. Yes that's some H50 & a few stocks for future/in the works projects. The RCBS have not been tricked out and the loads are finished out on the acculab Vic-123. I sold the big 50 but I'm sure I build anoter before to long.

After my latest updates. A Hornady LNL, 366, and a 007 (not shown).

My LNL with Inline Fabrication UltraMount, Ergo roller handle, and LED lighting.



A Hornady (Pacific) 366 with my home made mount and shell catching tray.


Closeup of the fancy shell catcher.




Seems I have a thing for red.

Nice set up Beck. The Ultramount looks great! I think my next purchase needs to be a shotshell press, I am over due on that one.

Just finished my basement and had just cleaned out the storage area. I bought all the supplies new except for the nails in the nail gun (only used to join the legs) and the decking screws. Total for 2x4's and OSB was $24.71.

BTW, I "cut the corner" so that my entry/exit into the room wasn't obstructed by the edge of the bench. I'll get a picture of the setup now that it's in use a little later today.

Very cool! I used 4x4 posts for the legs of my bench -- I suppose two 2x4's woulda been just as fine.

I won't get into too many details, but 4x4s are slightly stronger than doubled 2x4s (the degree of difference depends upon the method of fastening), however they are a fair amount less costly and are far stronger than required for the task at hand.

Looks good, Just glue and screw on the next layer of bench top and you should be good. I cover mine with a 1/4 sheet of hard mansonite. Makes for easier cleanup and replaceable if needed.

She is still a work in progress. For instance, I will be redoing the peg board and installing a hard wired outlet hub (6 outlets) so I can keep the wires running to the back of the bench. As it stands now, the plan is to eventually top the OSB with a smooth counter surface and install a vise on the corner as well as install some shelves above the peg board. Also going to hang another shop lamp up above and install a ceiling mount double outlet.

Don't have anything bolted down because I'm not sure what's going to be most productive yet. Shelves are fully stocked. Every friend has told me I made it to pretty. But I don't have a history of destroying my tools or my workshops.

That is a sharp set up. It looks like the Taj Mahal compared to where I started.

This is mine, It has everything I need but not everything I want. I had to get rid of two of my presses because they were so warn out they wouldn't make good ammo anymore. I tried to clean house and neaten up.

I'm happy with what I have.

I'm not trying to be an ass but just offering constructive criticism.
Installing a couple of sheets of drywall would go a long way in producing a much better looking reloading area. Your total cost would have gone up by maybe $75.00 including a can of primer and a couple of hours worth of labor
