After many years I just started reloading about a month ago. Reason? Not economics, but fear of liberals deciding how I will live my life. If osama cuts our ammo supplies, our gun supplies, our lead supplies, etc etc etc, to "help" us, I want to retain some bit of control over my life.
The small Jr. press is for bullet pulling, the RCBS Pro2000 is a very productive progressive.
When osama wants ammo for his SS black booted thugs he will have entire factories at his disposal!
Now I hear libs are trying to remove lead styphnate primers and replacing them with low shelf life primers, "for the children". Gosh, any possible ulterior motive in that?

HisSoldier- Nice setup. Very tidy! I also have the RCBS pro2000 and I love it. I made a minor upgrade to the primer catch tube and spent primer cup. The tube fell out frequently causing me to overtighten the screw. This deformed the spent primer tube. I eventually cut the spent primer tube below the first bend and attach clear tubing from Home Depot. The tubing slides on for a snug fit. I now have a Fiber laxative container on the floor to catch all the spent primers and it is very easy to slide the tubing off the spent primer tube when I move my press.

And now come the jokes about fiber laxative.

I guess I need to get a digital camera and post mine... HisSoldier, how's that RCBS Progressive working out for you, looks like a solid piece of equipment (I use a Hornady LnL myself, but I do use RCBS Rifle Dies)...

Thanks for posting your photo's guys.
It sure is fun to see how other reloaders are set up, it is great to get ideas from other folks-what a great hobby.

DEDON45, I love the RCBS Pro2000, very fast, but then I'm used to setting up automatic equipment for production, the learning curve wasn't too bad. The learning curve was why I got the (used) RCBS Jr. press to remove bad loads, took a while to figure out the pitfalls. The APS primer system took a while to figure out, I was missing the first primer in the strip for a while, and still have a few that get in a bit sideways. I set the loaded rounds in a tray primer up to spot them.

I recently found that 5.0 grains of Unique falls more consitently than 5.5 grains. I don't know why, and I mean a LOT more consistently.

Now, how long before we need to figure out how to make our own lead styphnate primers?

Ok, I finally got a pic. What you do not see here is the full size dresser off to the left, that houses all of my supplies (powder, primers, bullets, tools, not often used dies, etc....)

It is made of 2"X2"X1/8" angle, 3/4" ply, and anchored with 3/8" drop in anchors. I could have made it much stronger.....

Hi guys,
I am fairly new to reloading and am in the process of modifying a workbech to use for reloading. I checked here to get some ideas. They are some great looking set-ups. Hope you don't mind if I have some questions about reloading.

Thumbs up Thanks for all the great posts!

After many, many months of reading this thread I decided to start reloading. There are so many good ideas and great examples of benches here. Some are quite elaborate and detailed while others show how a small work space or limited working capital doesn't stand in the way of someones imagination.

My little reloading bench is only about five feet long. But this allows me to keep it in the basement rather than the garage which is important in the winter! At this time I just reload for my .45's but plan to move into .223 this winter.

Thanks to everyone who has posted in this thread for motivating others to try reloading their own ammo!

New Guy here...

As soon as I get back from BMT I'm welding up a tank of a bench and getting set up for .223 to start.

Some NICE benches on here, hard to believe this thread spans 2 years and still has current posts.

Very humble, new reloading setup - am already addicted and it's only been a week! Reloading makes shooting modern guns as much fun as the old blackpowder!

Doug, that's a REAL nice looking set-up! Don't worry, it'll get messed up in short order.
