Discussion in 'Handloading and Reloading' started by James THR, Aug 30, 2006.
I added some more Auto Disc's, cleaned up the bench a little. I picked up a single stage Lee press for decapping(couldn't beat the $20 price), not mounted yet, and I have one more LAD and a .380 die set on the way. I will be done at that point. Plenty of powders on hand right now too.
I have a 7th one on the way for the .380 die set that's on the way. I was going to get another auto disc for the .380 since those loads will always remain constant but the auto disc is more money, it was a no brainier.
It surely beats reloading on the tiny work stand I've been using for the past 5 years.
Very nice. Clean & simple
If my wife EVER told me what to DO with a space I was considering for myself I'd have to listen!
How do you embed photos like the ones above rather than with thumbnails?
Getting ready to post some pics of my gun/reloading room. Just a bit more organizing.
If you do not have your own web site like most users, you will need to upload your image to a web service that allows you to copy images there, then get the URL for the Image that you want to show and paste it in the dialog that pops up when you click the "Insert Image" box.
Here is a link that describes several sites that will share your images.
I hope that this helps you and others.
Here is an example of what I was talking about:
Gives me ideas to improve my setup.

I did buy a Lee single stage for de-capping, and two more Auto Drums! I retired the Auto Disc. I wasn't happy with that at all, even with a 9mm/115fmj/HS6 load that I like and load by the 100's, was sometimes low by .4g. Not a big deal but not acceptable to me.
Loaded up my first big run of ammo tonight.
Rifle Brass, extra brass and shotgun shells in the safe
Pistol brass and primer storage
My benches look like a small tornado hit them.

Press on B&D Workmate
I am still planning on building a reloading bench/cabinet; but for now continue to use the B&D Workmate (going on 3 years). Note the 2x10 has a 2x4 screwed into the bottom which the Workmate clamps onto. I secure one or two 25 lb weights to help stabilize it. The board has holes & shape for my Rock Chucker on one end, and the Lee LoadMaster on the other. The advantage is little space needed. I spread an old sheet on the carpet and set this up next to my regular desk which I use for the electronic powder measuring and other handling. Not the best for sure, but it stows away quickly and takes little room. I load 38spcl, 357, 45acl, 223, 308, and 458. I plan on adding a piece of plywood to one leg set to help stability. It works!
