Thanks, the rumors that float around on the internet is RCBS took their Rock Chucker castings work to China. They do the machining here but the castings are done in China.

Here it is. A candid shot. Just got back from the range and loaded up a couple hundred, came here looking for a bit of info, saw this thread and snapped a shot.

Need to organize a bit. No staging here , at least you'd HOPE not.

Just got started reloading about a month ago. I've really been enjoying my new found addiction!

Well after seeing everyones setup I finally got mine done for my small area in the house, but i gotta say that i love it.

I bough a butchers block from a garage sale for only $35.00, then i went to Lowe's and got a 24"x48" 3/4" piece of wood for only $25.00 to reinforce the top of the Butchers block, it was pretty cheap to make and it gives me the advantage of storage also.

I got my new Dillon 550b on it and on the opposite side i got my Lee Load all II (Shotshell). Here are the pictures guys hope you guys like it also ...

Thanks.

Ok did a little more work on the area

Not done yet for here, I still have to add another 4 foot bench for the rcbs Pro 2000 and the Hornady Lock N Load / case feeder... But I did make some changes from the post above

There is a MEC 600Jr, MEC 9000GN Progressive, Dillon RL550B with all the bells and whistles, and the LEE Classic Turret.

Okay, you asked for it - - -

SO, THIS THREAD IS NOW A STICKY, AT LEAST FOR A WHILE.

This is in response to a couple of requests. I'd lost track of how HUGE this thread has become.
Look, do us all a favor - - Use the thread ONLY to post images of your loading setup. Please, leave out the chatty stuff - - It just crowds things and makes browsing the images slow and unwieldy. As I have time, I'll go through and delete some not-particularly-germane posts. This does not indicate there's anything really wrong with what is removed, only that it doesn't contribute directly to the thread.

If what you write is of interest to only one other person, or you just want to comment, or to compliment another member, please use the Private Message function. Same if you just want to "say hi," or sociable stuff like that.

Another suggestion: Try to save the image to your own computer, at least for long enough to upload it to THR from your own hard drive. It is a little frustrating to see so many likely-interesting images replaced by the little notice, This image has been moved or deleted - - photobucket.

An interesting thread - - Let's all ty to help keep it manageable.

Thanks to everyone who posted pics so far - I have learned a lot ! Inspired by this thread, I am turning a storage cupboard into my reloading area. Looks a bit empty but I intend to remedy that soon. Until now, I have only reloaded 9mm and .38 but I want to start reloading .223 and .308 in the near future.

They are located near me in Ohio and I called them and ordered a 444 "H" press. They built it, called me, and I drove down and picked it up after being given a tour of the factory. It's in an old building where the entire ground floor is filled the entire length with shelves containing dies and parts made for out-of-production presses. The machine shop is in the basement and the entire building is one of those places where when you look in a corner, there is no telling what unique item you might find. Inside the entrance there sets a huge Hollywood turret press of some type that probably hasn't been use in decades.

The 444 is now my main press. It's built like a tank and the steel shafts ride on bronze bushings, so moving the shell plate up and down feels like I am rubbing together two pieces of glass. I fully expect it be operational a 150-years from now.

I recently acquired another tank, a Hollywood Senior that came w/o a universal shell holder. For $10.37, CH sent me one. Ebayers want $25 for the same thing.

Bomb Dropper - Nice scale. I have the same model on my bench. It is so much easier to use than a conventional balance scale. I don't understand why they dropped it from production.

Flashhole- maybe if we get enough people to say something they'll come back out with them. My dad bought it in the late 60's early 70's and its still dead on he gave me it to replace my 5-0-5 (which is a great scale) my first impression was that it was to big to accurately do powder charges on but i was wrong, its so simple just "dial a grain" and the built in trickler stand comes in handy on those bench rest loads.

I have to use a 1/8 board under it because I carpeted my bench top but other then that its the bees knees

Ohaus (the folks that make that and most other RCBS scales, as well as many laboratory scales) still makes the metric equivalent (grams rather than grains) of it, so I don't see why it would be hard to make this one again. I have heard the great reviews and would love to buy a new one (and used goes for a good bit).

Here's the twins.. you will note that one of the trimmer motors is off.
I was doing some work on it. They are both processing .223 brass right now.
I'm getting ready to make a .223 run and like to have a lot of brass on hand.
There is a bag over the Mr. Bullet feeder on the 1050 that's on the right side.
This is a work in progress.

Anyhow here is what came in from Hornady, they still owe me the electric case prep station, two sets of dies, and a couple other things...

You would not believe me if I told you... Let's just say it was affordable!

Ok, got another bench built and mounted on the block wall… Got the Hornady mounted and somewhat put together… I may move the Dillon over on this bench also and that would put the two MECs, the Lee Classic Turret and the yet to be delivered RCBS Pro 2000 for the bigger area.

I still have to install the solid metal door, wood floor, recessed lighting, wall stucco covering and a few other things to finish this room...

I got an email saying my Hornady electric case prep station will be here now on 6-7-2010 which is about 2 weeks sooner then they told me (makes me happy..!)

Then I found out in Aug’ I will have a Forster set coming in to use so I may have to build another bench!
