Here is mine I just finished last night
First pic is the front, second pic is the back, on top shelf & left side of next one is moulds, the "international coffee cappuccino" cans with sorted brass of each caliber I load, which is around 70 right now, unfortunatly don't have guns for all those lol. on the very bottom is the presses mounted so I can change as needed. The last pic gives an idea of how the presses chang out, each press is on one of the plates shown.last thing, all the boxes on the bottom shelf in front are handloader mags from 1970 to present as well as most of my manuals. The tool behind the press slot is a cannelure tool & the powder measure is an OLD C&H unit.

Great Thread

I just found this thread a month or so ago, boy has it been helpfull. I have looked at it several times, and im finally ready to get a bench built. I just bought a ton of reloading stuff to get me started, Rock chucker supreme reloading kit, Chargemaster 1500 combo, tumbler, stoney point oal gauge and comparitor set, 500 cases of brass, a few differnt kinds of bullets for 308 and 270, 3 pounds of differnt powders. Im gonna start building my bench this weekend, really looking forward to it. From the looks of some of the pictures in this thread it seems like reloading is really addictive.

LAH/Creeker if you read this post do you have any other links or pictures of the setup that the guy at 6gunner had? I heard about it somewhere else and heard it was awesome. The 6gunner link on page one of this thread is dead tho.

Thanks again for all the ideas guys,


EDIT: Also forgot to add books, dont want to scare you guys :P I bought the new Hornady, Speer, Nosler, and Lee reloading manuals to get me started w/ load data.

Reloading workbench

Here's my set up. It isnt as nice as some of the other members here, but it is certainly sturdy. It weighs around 275lbs, I added up individual pieces before assembly.

Here's one for you ZeSpectre...

I was inspired by this thread to build a bench, it took about a week. The frame is pine 2x4's, top and shelves are 3/4" pine plywood, with a 1/4" piece of oak glued to the surface. I painted the thing an ugly shade of gray, but used some stain and poly for the oak surface. I wanted to do something with the edges, so I cut some pewter-colored stair tread. This also makes sure bullets and cases won't roll off the table.

I loaded 100 rounds of 38spl last weekend to break it in, but hope to do a bunch more this weekend. It is pretty nice outside, so I might end up doing some yardwork instead.

My previous 'bench' was a TV dinner tray and a Lee Hand Press

Took a pict of "Father's Little Play Room" (name courtesy of my 8 year old daughter) after I've finally cleaned it.

I've looked at the counter tops with the rolled front and wondered how they would work. Great Job.......Creeker

there is a 3/4 plywood beneath the counter as well
the holes on the front of the press just fit
i used a large fender washer to spread the load in the rear
also built a small support wall in line with the presses
absolutly no movement of the presses at all

Finally cleaned up the bench and decided to join this thread. Mine looks like a POS compaired to some of ya'lls. But it gets the job done.

What more can a guy ask for but his faithful companion, his guns, and his guitar? This is my reloading/xbox room. When friends stay over, they usually stay on that futon too. I spend a lot of time in that room.

By the way, that is a Dillon Square Deal B that I stole for a grand total of $60 and an RCBS rock chucker single stage that I learned how to reload on (still learning a lot but thats what I started with).

Here's mine. I've been reloading for 2 years now, 38 spl, 357 mag, and 40 S&W. My $60 Lee 4-Hole Turret press has probably loaded about (500) 38 spl's, (3000) 357 magnums, and over (5000) 40 S&W cartridges. Its an awesome press for the money and its still kickin'. The big brown box has 1000 40 S&W bullets in it, and the two red XTP boxes are 180 grain 357's and 180 grain 40 S&W. Although there is only one box of primers in the pic, I've got 3 more off to the side. Oh and by the way, 296 and Unique are the only 2 powders I'll ever need.
