    My reloading bench is a workmate type bench, and I have been enjoying it a lot. It doesnt tip at all, and its got a fair amount of weight to it, since I keep my components on it. However, it is slightly un-level. Will this affect my reloads at all? I would imagine not, but I would like all of your opinions on it. Thanks for any help.

    Only thing it could affect would be your scale.

    Yeah, I put that on the table next to me, which is level.

    Sounds like you're set. I've heard of a number of folks using the type of bench you describe, and they generally seem happy with it. Hope it works out well for you!

    Being un-level shouldn't hurt you. Lots of people use the Lee hand press for load development at the range and it doesn't attach to anything. If you have a powder thrower the bench shaking can hurt it's consistancy but that's about it.

    My powder thrower is excellent. With AA#5 it is dead on everytime. However, with larger flake powders like Unique, it varies a few tenths. Still acceptable.
