These are a few pics from the garage area! What started as a localized reloading station has taken over the garage. There are a maximum of 4 uploads..so I don't want to overdo it..but the garage is rapidly becoming a place where the lawn mower is a guest!

You can see the lawnmower peeking over the top of the cleaning table. I found a place for it. I have a bench on the other wall where I work on my rifles.

chrt......The lawnmower doesnt get used all year long. It should be in the back row. Reloading, well it's a year in/year out thing.

chrt, you might want to photoshop out that pack of Marlboro's on the "left side of bench RCBS" photo but I have to admit I have done the same thing...

You have a real nice reloading setup and I am jealous.

BTW are you a Bucs fan? My son was on their practice squad last year. He even got to fly to England when they played in Wembley Stadium.

My Dad just finished this for me. And the GF let me use the spare bedroom as a gun room.

The wife and I stained these 2 cabinets today and tonight we installed the counter top. This wall is only 9' long so I made the bench 6' long and am planning to use it for cleaning guns.

Setup in the shed. Works pretty good, lots of storage in the drawers. Plan to put up some peg board and cabinets soon too.

An uninsulated shed? You must live somewhere warm. I would like to be warm right now.

I'm working out of a shed - insulation is your friend! Shed holds in heat better then the house (or holds in the cold in the summertime). Build it right and it's a pretty nice place to be.

v8stang: How's that powder measure work for you? I'm trying to put together a cheap reloading kit for a relative (and don't want to blow a lot of money on it).

Yeah its a new shed and very cold about right now haha. Insulation is in the plans right now. Got a little heater in there that makes it tolerable. The only thing I was concerned about was my dies changing with the temperature and constantly throwing off things like the bullet seating. So far I haven't noticed any change from the temperature (15-60F) throughout the past few weeks.

@altitude- I use that Lee powder measure, and it seems to work pretty well. That being said, I SS and trickle all my rifle bullets larger than .223. It get me pretty close, very consistenly. And they are pretty inexpensive as well.

altitude_19 So far it's working OK as long as the operator is consistent with the lever. The powder I'm using is Unique, and I've heard there are metering issues with it sometimes. Usually the charge is right on, and when I do get a variance it's a tenth of a grain or so (usually a tenth less). I've Only loaded 250 rds so far and I still weigh each charge because I'm paranoid.

Ok, all of the benches are done. Now all I have to do is install more cabinets and clean off bench tops.
