    Thinking of putting a reloading setup in my garage. But the floor slopes downward from the backyard to the garage door. Is this something I need to be concerned about? Thanks.

    I have the same issue in my garage..my bench is made to correct for that and as long as you level it properly you'll be fine. If it isn't level your scale will not be accurate.

    If you spill shot at least you'll know where it went.... Instead of having all over my loading room like I do.. :)

    I had that problem but put pieces of lumber underneath two of the legs to shore up the top with a level. If you use a balance beam type scale, its even more important that your surface is level.

    Use adjustable feet on your bench to level your bench. Do the same thing with your stool if you use one of those and you should be ok.

    Regards,

    Watch your scale if it's a beam. My bench has a small bow in it and I made a bunch of rounds that were light because my scale wasn't reading properly. I would shim the legs with some thin wood if I were you.
