    Thought maybe there was something in the pictures I wasn't seeing!:)
    I switched exclusively to Win primers after lightening the triggers on my Rugers. Got lots of light strikes with CCI's.

    Hooks. Looks like you found my ex-wife. Why's she sitting on your bench? And whose her ugly friend?

    This is the primary bench. My gun bench is to the right and I have two big cabinets to the left.

    As others said make a strong bench. Everyone I make is stronger than the last one. The current one (too messy to photograph right now) is constructed with 2x6s in a vertical band with the back bolted to the basement wall. Then I ran 2x10s perpendicular to the wall to form the bench top. I jokingly referred to it as the Tornado Shelter, then I realized that really wasn't a joke, it would be the safest place in the house in a storm! :)

    Nice clean setup GTKrockeTT. Where did you get the parts for that? Seems sturdy, is it? That might be just what I need.

    Nice pix all. Just what I needed. I'm looking to set up a bench and I'm stupid limited on free space with no spare rooms or basements.

    Here is my bench that I put together with scrap wood I had in my barn. The table is bent with the same principle as the plans that have been shown on here. I wanted to do something much fancier but wanted to get the press up and running before I could save up enough to build a nice one.

    I've added a lot of stuff to the vertical reloading bench since the last picture, so I thought another picture might be in order.

    [​IMG]

    This picture was from a month ago and more stuff has been added since then, with another MidwayUSA.com order arriving the day after tomorrow. I'm finally reaching the point that I wish I had more room. I have a shot shell reloader I'd like to add. I guess I could replace the horizontal pieces to widen it another foot or so. Or maybe just bolt a table extension and shelves on the left side? It works surprisingly well, organizing an awful lot of stuff in a very small footprint.

    The full text with excessive description is here:

    workbench kit was purchased here. you supply your own hardware, allowing you to build the bench without any specified size constraints. the sucker is definitely sturdy.

    my humble abode......

    Here it is.....I am actually "doin' it".....

    Salvaged this old desk from work. It's pretty stable but I may add a verticle brace going from under the press to the floor.

    Ergonomics are way off for my 6' frame. I like working while sitting down, but will need to put the whole desk up on blocks ~4".

    Banged out a couple boxes of .38 special target loads last night and got a major crick in my neck.

    If it gets above 10 degrees this weekend I may brave the elements and scoot on down to the range to pop off a box.

    Old shop area Dillon , RCBS, C&H

    Yes , still have my first true progessive C&H machines. In their time, prior to a lot of other manufacturers I reloaded thousands of rounds of 9mm, 38/357, 44 mag, 45 acp, and 10mm with them. Once you understand a machine they are kinda hard to let go. I would leave one with a small primer setup, and the other with a large primer setup. I have also had Lee Pro1000's and LoadMaster units prior to Dillons Square Deals. My main machine now are the Dillon XL650 which has produced over 50k of reloads since new. I shoot a lot of pistol still. I should sell the C&H's which I have not used in over 10 years now.

    Slowly getting organize.

    I had quit shooting and reloading for 20 years due traveling and job transfer. I sold all I had at the time. (Dillon 450 etc..., all my pistols, revolvers, shotguns and rifles).
    Was I ever sorry. I lost a lot of money then.
    Then last June, I deceide to get back at it again, I fist bought a 22cal Pardini SP for competition. Then a 2 months later I bought a H&K USP Tactical 45 ACP. plus 2 shot gun for geese and a rifle for deer.
    Because of the 45 cal, I had to reload again and deceide to buy this Hornady LNL.

    I'm verry happy with this machine. I would 't hesitate to do it again.
