Just a small bench. It is actually a microwave cart, but fit perfectly in our computer room in the condo. Sorry about the quality, my wife took the camera to her parents house.

Thanks guys, nice to be here.
I love reload and I think that a good reload bench in very important to work well.
Many of my tools I buy in ebay USA, like these powder measures and scales, They are old but work very good.
Greetings from Spain.

Something to shoot for

Thanks to everyone for the great pics, I am just putting my reloading hobby back together, and it is nice to see everyones setup. I think the craftsmen bench will be the one for me with the light already on it, as a good start.
thanks

I like to reload at the range, where I can easily fine tune my loads. Here's my range setup:



It all fits into a small action packer for easy portability.

Here is my setup. I just finished the wall shelf yesterday and have not bolted my RCBS RS2 back on or organized the shelf.

My bench is screwed to the wall and was built using 2x4's and 3/4 MDF for the top. The shelf is 10" Shelving board with a luan back. I plan to install some fluorescent lighting under the shelf to illuminate my work area.

After seeing some of these pictures, thereare a lot of good ideas. I really like the tracks laid into the table... I have been thinking about a couple of ideas and that looks like the ticket. Thanks for sharing that .

Here is my bench and a dillon toolhead holder I made

My bench

I set up my bench so that all my presses could be detached and put off to the side ( in case I have to use the workbench for other tasks). I reload 9mm, 38 SPL, .357 Mag, .45 ACP, .45 LC, .223 Rem, and .243 Win and 12 guage (Cheap Lee Load All....but works just fine for me). I cast for 9mm, .38/.357, and .45 acp/LC. The last picture is my reloading buddy, Earl. Man's best friend!

On the Lee press there is a place to fit a hose for the spent primers to drop into a bin.

26yrs old and new to reloading. Started on february 14th when my gal got me a dillon 650 lol. Never ever owned a gun till january (unless duty weapons by the military or my job) and now I can't stop lol.

I like it. Right now I'm not going for complete accuracy. Just stock piling till the time comes where I'm satisfied with what I have then I'll work on accuracy rounds for certain weapons.

So whatcha think?







BTW I love my new XDM .40... I need to go test my XDM 9 but anywhoo I hope ya'll like my set up. (lol could careless if you don't though)

Chow!

Edited... The flag is laying on a bench because a storm ripped it off the side of my house. I know the flag should not be like that but I have to get a new mounting plate and rod...

I have a small home, so room is at a premium. I used a 60.00 butchers block from craigstlist. I have two Dillon 550s, one for large primer work and one for small primer work.

re:IllinoisCoyoteHunter

Any luck training your dog to operate the reloading presses? I tried with my dogs, I think not having a thumb works against them.
