Ok I vote for cracked butt too. The clock was the crown of that table. If you look close half of the numbers do not work.

Actually you only see the front row, there's an additional 6 or 7 boxes behind those out of view. You might get the idea I love Laser-Cast.

I use them in 9mm, .357/.38, .40, .44 and .45 (Colt and ACP) calibers.

For my 1911, I use both 230 RN, and one of my favorites, the 155 SWCBB. The 155 is extremely accurate; it's like taking a .452" paper punch and going to work on the center of a target - very neat holes. The hard part with them is finding the optimum OAL. That turned out to more difficult than usual.

In .44 Magnum, the L-C 300 gr. TC's makes some real slammers. Great for hunting.

LOL! I can't keep myself from going back and looking at that pic again and again. It's like a bad car crash, replete with body parts and general carnage; you just cannot help but look and look again as you go by.

Cracked Butt, that pic might just become my screensaver........

If this was properly exposed, it might come is as a tie or close second to CB's entry! The bench looks better today,This pic was 3 years ago), because of the addition of shelving above the bench to organize the empty shell boxes. I'll take another pic tonight of a better organized mess!

Here's the other two corners of the small bedroom I call paridise. Both have lots more "stuff" on them now, but are FAIRLY well organized.

See snuffy, the problem here is everything in your mess seems to be reloading stuff. I will grant you second place status, but until you can get some real unreloading related trash in there your not going to hang with the cracked butts of the world.

Dang, I thought the priority mail boxes might do it, oh well! I guess I'll just have to clean up real good, then try for the neatest reloading bench award!

I don't see how any term can describe that other than "Wow!".

That's what happens when Bill Gates decides to get into shooting and reloading.

I have never even dreamed of a setup like that......the power of imagination, knowledge, and the money to get there

I could not load for the distraction of the view

After looking at (read: "drooling at") that thread again, I see that Hammer and I started out the same - a Lee tool and a hammer!

(... and that ends any similarity.)
