I am amazed that that is 2 weeks. I am kinda jealous, several months, and I have 3 tubs of powder and 3 boxes of primers lol. Then again I am still dealing with the poor college student syndrome lol.


That's OK. At least you are starting at a young age!! I started at 55!! You have plenty of time for this hobby to snowball into an absolute obsession!!

And in only 2 weeks.......I wonder what it will look like in a couple of years.

I'm wondering the same thing. Nice going.
You put some thought into the setup too it looks like. Case prep on the left, on to priming, then charging, then the press. Looks efficient and well set up.
Welcome aboard sir.

I just spent some time going through all 76 pages of this thread and I must say...

There are several addicts on here that just make me SICK. Too much bloody money with too many high dollar toys, more components than a manufacture has and just flat out to many loaded rounds just sitting on the shelves.

Just kidding folks. I'm just sitting here green with envy and jealousy. Keep downloading the pics.

I took a metal frame shelving section and reinforced it with 2x4's on the understand to withstand the torque of the press.
That's a great idea! I've got a great big piece of hardwood from an old 1920's desk that I'm going to use as a bench top, and have been wondering how to make a supporting base for it that can easily be disassembled and moved. Your idea will also allow me total control of the height and it can be a pedestal style to eliminate the legs and permit clamping all the way around.

Those are 2 custom BR rifles built on Kelbly Panda actions. Both are 6mm Dashers for long range BR shooting. The closest one is set up as a light gun to shoot 1k BR. The other is built with a short range BR stock and mainly used for a local groundhog match.

Here is my apartment bench

I jus got into reloading a few weeks ago, but since my wife and I live in an apartment, I had to get creative with my bench, since it would need to be disassembled and stored for most of the time.

So here it is. It's a Lee Deluxe Turret kit, on Franklin Arsenal stand. It's quite easy to take down. The main post is tapered and fits in the large base and the mount surface without any tools, simply twist, and pull them apart.

I've already done about 350 rounds on it, and now it will be stored for a month or two, until I need it again.

Hornady LNL AP "Portable"

My new "Portable Stand-Alone" setup. Hornady LNL AP complete with Dillon low-primer and powder check alarms, primer shuttle L.E.D warning and a round counter. Lyman 450w/heater for smokeless lube, and RCBS LAMII for BP lube. My actual bench is a mess! Maybe some pics after I clean it up.

For those old enough to know what this means, Viper is giving Rube Goldberg a run for his money.

Hmm, not enough random, apparently unrelated objects for a true Rube Goldberg machine.

I am impressed at the density though!

Cowboy, is the top actually tongue & grooved 2X6s with a lip on the front? Looks like there is more than meets the eye from the pic.

My reloading bench, latest edition

I just installed steel plates with two inches of plywood sandwiched between for a really sturdy mount. Also, I didn't want to pay for a commercial case preparation set up so I used an old drill motor and a sewing machine foot switch. It works great.
