    Me too !

    3 blank stocks - Future projects??
    2 ChargeMasters - did you reprogram for faster charging or slower for accuracy
    1 AmmoMasterII press - looks like adapter for standard shell holders
    Do you shoot a 50BMG? Think you do - Think I saw some H50BMG on shelf.

    Yes - I creeped on pictures by enlarging - only because I'm very jealous of your setup.
    I love to shoot 1000 yards and beyond.

    Wow you guys are good. Yes that's some H50 & a few stocks for future/in the works projects. The RCBS have not been tricked out and the loads are finished out on the acculab Vic-123. I sold the big 50 but I'm sure I build anoter before to long.

    After my latest updates. A Hornady LNL, 366, and a 007 (not shown).

    My LNL with Inline Fabrication UltraMount, Ergo roller handle, and LED lighting.

    A Hornady (Pacific) 366 with my home made mount and shell catching tray.

    Nice strong mount on the LnL! I have an ergo handle on my LCT, inlinefabrication has great products.

    Nice set up Beck. The Ultramount looks great! I think my next purchase needs to be a shotshell press, I am over due on that one.

    Just finished my basement and had just cleaned out the storage area. I bought all the supplies new except for the nails in the nail gun (only used to join the legs) and the decking screws. Total for 2x4's and OSB was $24.71.

    BTW, I "cut the corner" so that my entry/exit into the room wasn't obstructed by the edge of the bench. I'll get a picture of the setup now that it's in use a little later today.

    Very cool! I used 4x4 posts for the legs of my bench -- I suppose two 2x4's woulda been just as fine. :)

    I won't get into too many details, but 4x4s are slightly stronger than doubled 2x4s (the degree of difference depends upon the method of fastening), however they are a fair amount less costly and are far stronger than required for the task at hand.

    :)

    Looks good, Just glue and screw on the next layer of bench top and you should be good. I cover mine with a 1/4 sheet of hard mansonite. Makes for easier cleanup and replaceable if needed.

    She is still a work in progress. For instance, I will be redoing the peg board and installing a hard wired outlet hub (6 outlets) so I can keep the wires running to the back of the bench. As it stands now, the plan is to eventually top the OSB with a smooth counter surface and install a vise on the corner as well as install some shelves above the peg board. Also going to hang another shop lamp up above and install a ceiling mount double outlet.

    Don't have anything bolted down because I'm not sure what's going to be most productive yet. Shelves are fully stocked. Every friend has told me I made it to pretty. But I don't have a history of destroying my tools or my workshops.

    First time posting, saw this thread and i figured i had to. I started about 10 months ago so its really not much, but it works. Hopefully i will be moving soon though and that desk is not going to last another move, so i'll have to build something new!!

    That is a sharp set up. It looks like the Taj Mahal compared to where I started.

    This is mine, It has everything I need but not everything I want. I had to get rid of two of my presses because they were so warn out they wouldn't make good ammo anymore. I tried to clean house and neaten up.

    I'm happy with what I have.

    I'm not trying to be an ass but just offering constructive criticism.
    Installing a couple of sheets of drywall would go a long way in producing a much better looking reloading area. Your total cost would have gone up by maybe $75.00 including a can of primer and a couple of hours worth of labor
