Powder cabinet (assuming that is what the white stickified cabinet is), a gun safe, and a refrigerator...what else does one need?

Machines include:
Ponsness Warren 800B (12G)
C&H Autochamp W/ Collater (modded with RL550 powder measure) .45 ACP
MEC 12 Gauge
Rockchucker
Dillon RL550 w/ approx 15 Toolheads




Walk in gun vault. Gun cleaning vice bolted to bench. Gun rack cut into end. Good for standing up cleaning rods too.

Cut 1" holes in one of my shelves to stand all my dies up, and cut them in sets of three x 20 per shelf, so i can label by caliber and have FL-NECK-SEAT and toss the plastic boxes.
used dowel rods on another board to hold all my shell holders by numerical order. Similar method with dillon's powder funnels, and similar method for the toolheads. labelmaker can become your best friend and time-saver.

Holes cut approx 3" for .45 and 4.5" for 12 G with funnels made from funnels to guide shells after they eject to ammo cans under the bench preparing final inspection.

That is an ingenious idea...using a funnel for that.

Nice setup you have there.

Most of these reloading setups are too neat, including those that are messy! :-)

I am trying to find ideas for a new bench for myself with some means of keeping odds and ends OFF of it! Amazing how much accumulates so quickly.

Thanks to all for the pics.

Out on parole, eh Mags?

I used to load in the garage. Fighting rust was the biggest concern, then, of course, the temps.

I like the corner set up. AC

Better quality pictures, with a better view of just about everything..
First pic is the big Progressives.. c&h autochamp (.45) and p/w 800B 12 gauge

Big pics show mec sizemaster 12 gauge, dillon 550 b, arbor press (wilson gauge, 22-250), rock chucker, etc. Oehler chrono.. you name it.

back wall is empty. Working on a deal right now on acquiring a used (in awesome shape) camdex 2200.. in .223.

Great set up. That bench with the shotgun looks like my workbench out in the shed after 2 or 3 projects.

Here is a picture of my set up provided Santa don't let me down. The table top is out of 1" cabinet grade plywood with a couple of 2X4's running underneath where I plan on mounting the new dillon 550B, the back boards are tapconed to the concrete and then screwed to the wooden uprights I can't pyhsically move it. I am looking to find a good place to store my powder next. That would imply I have decided what to use haha.
