This is my little area that I try to spend an occasional minute or two in daily. It is barely adequate to meet my shooting demands at times but I think I finally got a handle on the basics required to feed the herd.

I use that pic as "proof of clean" so I can show everybody that at one time the place was clean.

PS: I'll get the new Dillon calender next week, on sale when I drop by their shop!!!

GLShooter, question???????????

In the top picture, can you load with the Lyman All American where it's bolted on the bench? Will the handle travel full stroke?

Yes, I can use the full stroke. Also, if you look on the second picture you will see another AA Turret that I use also. It also allows full movement of the handle.

Some updates in equipment and consumables stock…
I got a few new Hornady products and have a few more on the way. I still have a Forster press coming…

I got to get that room in the garage done this spring… I am OUT of room in here!

It's simple and humble, but I like it



The bottom is from a old metal office chair


2 pieces of exhaust pipe (one that will slide down inside the other)


a piece of flat metal and a piece of scrap rebar/round bar for strength


a bolt and nut

Welcome to THR, brow_tines! Looks simple but effective; I imagine it is easily toted to the range for on-site load development too.

Yep all you have to do is loose the bolt and the 2 pieces will come apart. Just thought even though having a room/big space dedicated to reloading is really nice, that a beginner doesn't have to have a "big space" to reload.

Headaches, I usually get those from banging my head against the wall, but the pill bottle is empty and filled with little lead BB's that came extra with the dies for the star. I Like to re-use stuff I can get for free, you should see my garage, it looks like I run a Deli Salad Factory from all the plastic cantainers I get from the local grocerey store, they may great storage for brass and other stuff. As far as overengineering goes, I am not sure about that but it works for me!!!!! I just got the Co/Ax and so far love it!!!!

Over engineered gear WORKS. You will never wear out that RCBS. My pro-2000 isn't a refined piece of equipment, but I couldn't break it if I had a half hour to spare and a sledge hammer.

A little more than a bench

Reloading


Sizing and Lubing

Very nice place there. It helps pass those blizzards doesn't it?

Well, I started this after getting back from deployment in Late May 2010. I started out bolting my press to a table before getting a proper bench.

I just realized after looking through a few pages here what is going to happen to me in the future. I have only been "into" shooting for about 4 years. I have already accumulated about 35 guns and a modest reloading set up.

Sick part is I am now thinking about what guns to buy in terms of "reloading". I really want a Freedom Arms Sparrowhawk, just so I can reload for it. Is that a problem.


Anyways I'm thinking at this point I should just add an addition to my house and get it over with. Would be way easier than trying VERY hard to keep it all confined.

We finally got our bench set up again after #?*! thieves stole our stuff. We've pieced enough together to start loading again, but it's not done by any stretch. I'll try and get a pic posted this afternoon.

It's nothing to write home about YET.
This will get us by for now. Hopefully, as funds allow, we'll have it set up like we want it before too long.
I won't complain anymore though. I am getting my fix!
The room is a wreck but before too long, it'll be a great man cave. The bench is the neatest thing in the building.
As you can see, we have no real brand preferences. There's a little red, a little green and a little orange represented. Hopefully one day, there will be some blue.

Stealing reloading gear?!? Me thinks this is not the smartest decision one could make...guy *might* like his press...heck he might even have a gun!
