    I love that he has a Jeep, the sole purpose of which appears to be "target changer transportation".

    Wait, I just read the whole post and the guy is a Mathmatician. I'm not exactly sure what kind of work that gets you, but damn it must pay good!

    I would not have so many reloading presses but overall I am going to try for that set-up.

    But it would not be worht it to do it in California so I think a relocation is in order.

    So, instead of changing dies he just buys another press. A novel approach. Well I 'spose if you have the money and the space, why not.
    Beautiful landscape.

    Man, I don't reload at all and I'm still envious!

    It makes me happy to see such a cool setup.

    I guess if you've got it, flaunt it?

    I could never justify that type of gross excess in a thousand years.

    Beautiful country, though.

    I think it's one of four things. They're all "wife related".

    1. The guy has a wife who dosen't give him crap about anything. Time spent on hobbies, money spent on hobbies, or just hobbies...

    2. The guy has no wife.

    3. The guy's wife has equaly expensive hobbies, and she has a decidely un-wifely sense of "fairness".

    4. The guy has a wife that likes shooting as/almost much as he does.

    (4a. His wife is a Dillon Blue Press catalog model.)

    Although, a bit more seriously, whenever I do see something that involved, whatever it is, planes, boats, sailing, mountian climbing, whatever... I wonder more about the finances, lifestyle, and personal relationships that permits them the ability to devote so much time and money to their hobby, than I do about the hobby itself.

    I think we can safely rule out 4a. since he'd probably have other things to do in that case, like, uh... :rolleyes:

    Somebody with plenty of dough and waaaay too much time on their hands.

    I like the shooting setup...prolly due to the climate being colder than the frozen Chosin a lot of the time. I could see myself setting something like that up for my final residence someday.

    You'd think somebody smart enough to earn enough to afford all of that could figure out how to change the tool head thingy on the Dillon thingamajigs.

    If you shot enough ammo to NEED that many presses, how would one ever have the time for a SO?

    Makes me wonder what the gun collection must look like.

    Well, it's OK. I prefer mine. Yup, my Dillon is perched on my bench which is a desk in the corner of my upstairs. I have an astounding 25 or so square feet of space to put it all in, thus a lot of crap layin around, and the lovliest veiw of my neighbor's roof and the adjoining street. Ah, peace and contentment.;)

    Oh yeah, well I have about 40 boxes of casings in the garage, that I'm saving for when I get a reloading setup, and a great view of the inside of my garage. Beat that! :p

    The only thing I don't like about the set up is that he can't see to either side of the shooting lane and has no idea if someone is up there who shouldn't be. Granted the homestead looks isolated but one thing you never do concerning lanes of fire is assume or leave to chance. That is a sweet shop though. I can't even afford one of those Dillions. :p

    i Do Not Like the whole "shooting from the reloading room" concept. other than that, it's cool.

    Fella's;

    The referenced threat from sixgunner is excellent. I brought my wife down & showed that set up to her. I then asked her not to give me any crap about my reloading set up ever again. I pointed out that if I so desired, I now had a goal, a record to pass, a bar to top. She got the point.

    :D 900F

    Why was it the first thing I thought when I saw that room was, "Good morning, class. Welcome to Reloading 101."

    That's just over the top.
