    WitchHunter, the image is too small to see. it needs to be at least 8 times larger.

    Just upgraded my bench with a new Lee cast iron press. I zipped through 100 or so 7.62 NATO's before the RCBS decapper gave out on a Radway Green. The press is awesome. Very stable, with a smooth action and very little effort needed even with the small base dies. The spent primer tube is a neat addition but about 1 in 10 or so falls out a slot in the front. No biggie but I wish there was a fix for it. And as the busted decapper indicates, this sucker is powerful so you need to use care when combining RCBS parts with stiff military primers.

    Well, thank you very much. I missed out on the bidding for the hanging light on Ebay. Just kidding. :D
    Just trying to keep the dust off stuff.

    Crown Royal for the press, an old sock for the powder measure(tacky and fits a bit tight) and an old towel for the gun vise. May be a few projects for Mom's sewing machine in the works too. My trimmer, tumbler and annealing kit need covers or a cabinet along with the stuff under the desk.

    Here's mine guys. Don't laugh it's all I got. Hopefully we will be buying a house soon and have an actual bench![​IMG]

    No, that's far too simple ;-) I ended up wedging a piece of brass tube in the slot to block it off. I hand prime anyway.

    I've gone through another 300 rounds of .357 now. Awesome press.

    Looks like the cat gets some utility out of that Midway range bag as well!

    Adam the gnome, I applaud your efficient use of space. I might build something similar for the living room. When wife and I met I had a rockchucker bolted to my coffee table and a uniflo powder measure. At the time my home had all the loading equipment in the storage building out back. I didn't like having to go outside every time I wanted to load. Once wife and I moved into our current home I was not allowed to drill holes in her grandparents coffee table. Go figure. Luckily reloading room is a short trip down the stairs. As to the cat pics, my dogs always enjoyed the reloading room as it or the gym was where I spent most time and had to evict them from gym when friends were over to keep the dogs from getting hurt.

    Looks like you have a nice selection of bullets and powder there. That is a lot of RCBS die sets on that shelf.

    I am new to the game and just completed my bench and first 100 rounds of 44 mag in two bullet weights. I will be doing some .223 soon and starting on 9mm after that. I'm sure I will figure out better ways to manage my bench as I go, but it's been fun so far. I just can't believe it took me this long to get into reloading!

    Nice setup. Mine is very similar. I have the Gadsen flag in the same place too.

    Cool. :) I like your setup.

    Hey guys, when you quote someone's post that includes images, if you could snip them, I'm sure some of us, especially those on mobile devices, would appreciate it. :)

    Mine is currently being moved/rebuilt in out soon to be new home. I had the space under the 3-car garage turned into a safe room/vault with HVAC. I’m in the process of moving my reloading stuff and finishing the new 700+ square ft room, while prepping our current house for sale.

    Wow, that looks like it's going to turn out great! Nice touch with the vault door.

    Wish I had room for something like that.

    Guilty!

    I noticed this happening after I quoted one with images...I didn't expect the images to be quoted as well. Made me cringe. I try to delete images when I quote now!
