    I just finished up a new bench, no rounds have been loaded on this bench yet. There are still some tool heads and stuff that need to be brought over to get this thing all buttoned up. Two 550B's and a rock chucker. 550's are set up for small and large primers, have tool heads with powder throwers already set up for .40, .45, .44mag, .223 and 30-06, soon to add 30.30, maybe 9mm and .260rem if I get around to building one.

    I've had my eye on that Costco workbench for a couple of years now, but all our moves keep me from stepping up yet. Nice to see it works well for reloading, I'm going to get one when I can and consign the custom benches to the garage.

    I recently added the storage cabinet on the right side and the shelf for brass above my reloading/firearm work bench.

    I currently load 260 rem, 260 AI, 6.5 Grendel, 223, 35 Rem, and 9mm luger.

    That is a very nice set up. It doesn't take a huge bench to make good ammunition.

    Reloading Room

    When we built the new house, I added a room, under air, in the garage. It's tight in there, but I have all of the goodies. The builders, called it my "time out" room.

    Here's mine. Built it from a set of plans I found on the net.

    I just loaded 300 rounds of 9mm today. The cabinets on the sides are great for storing powder,books, or whatever, and they are lockable. There is a storage rack on the bottom, too. The whole thing is very sturdy. I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I had planned on anchoring the back of the bench to a wall stud to keep it from moving, but it doesn't move at all when I'm working.

    I was going to post a photo of my bench after four years' worth of reloading clutter but the picture size is HUGE (4000x3000 pixels)!!! Gotta find a way to shrink it down... I did manage to stash it in my album for now, though.


    ETA: Let's try this:

    Since early 2010, I've added several lights and a shelf below the bench. And a whole heapin' pile of goodies!

    Clicky for biggy on both.

    I'm not sure if I like the LnL case feeder or want to burn it and pee on its ashes. When it works it's pretty neat but when it doesn't, which is far more often, it's due to some tiny piece misbehaving. Extremely frustrating.

    I don't use a chair. :) Well I do have a bar stool that's the perfect height, but I rarely use it. I find myself standing more often.

    I always stand at my bench. I can't pull the lever repeatedly in a chair.

    Most of the time I'm standing at my Dillon but I do have a tall stool from a hospital lab when I want to sit. My Rock Chucker is on a lower bench so I use an reclaimed/refinished oak school chair.

    I'm new to reloading and just got set up. Before even loading a single shell I decided the bench was not going to stay and moved into a small room about 10' to the right. So, here is a shot of the reload bench v1.0 and then v2.0 which is running now. Of course before finishing 2.0 I already have plans for 3.0!

    I actually did load some 12ga before moving it. Many great ideas from this thread! It took like 5 days of ignoring my gf to get through the 131 pages of submissions! Thanks to all who showed their very private and sometimes secret rooms, and also to the ones who put their reloading areas prominently in their living rooms and entry ways! I'd like to have mine convertible in the living room but our house is too small to make at happen I think.

    So now I've loaded a few hundred 45's and it only cost me a nasty blood blister (followed a case up a little to long on the press) and about 1000$! So my cost per shot is already only 10/ea, haha. I'm bordering on obsessing on this hobby now.
