Not sure that's the kind of "reloading" he meant, but I like it!

 

 

BTW, that one section seems to be missing a few bottles.

I guess I misunderstood.:ph34r:  That was 2017 I think, supply was a little thin that year.

Thank you, Randy. I was starting to feel bad comparing those nice, neat rooms to my loading "area." Looking at yours I'm feeling pretty good about mine.:P

I'm right at home!  I've got 2 or 3 of everything because I can't find what I know I have.  Besides my active reloading tools and components,  I have 40 years or old stuff.

With the large quantity of primers and powder I suggest a metal hazmat storage cabinet.  Or you could build a fire resistant closet for storing them & ammo.  A couple of layers of drywall on outside & inside walls and ceiling plus a steel door/frame provides excellent fire resistance.

Thank's Randy, you have made me feel much better about my reloading room! 

 

I have seen the "loading table" at the TN State match.  I have a couple of those items that were on that bench after that picture was taken

You have a wellorganized outfit. My reloading is in a small cabin 200 yards from my house. I load too much Holy Black to havr it anywhere near where I sleep!  :)

Amateurs.

Most of the primer stock is 3 or 4 deep. Some of it dates to the Dark Times of reloading starting back around 2008, but they work fine.

I'm not walking down to the powder storage locker just for a pic, it's cold and snowing out.

After looking as some of these reloading rooms, I'm feeling a little inadequate.  I may have to step up my game.

Here is my little corner of reloading heaven.

 

If you think it is normally this neat, there is a bridge in New York I might be able to interest you in. These days there is a big RCBS Grand shot shell reloader where the little Lyman single stage press sits in this photo.

 

Before anybody asks, the bottle on the floor under the Lock & Load on the left is to catch spent primers. The spent primers from the one on the right go into the red bucket.

Rotary tumbler. The tub is the gray thing just to the left.

OK.

 

Thanks. Learn something new every day.

 

I checked out the video. I would be interested in one of those, but living in a condo I don't have a sink big enough to empty it into.

 

Mrs. Johnson would be real unhappy if I emptied it into the bathtub.

yeah---dump in the sink----quick rinse then into the media separator.   Throw em on the towel to dry for a couple of days to dry then of to the shed for loading.   I've got more AMMO loaded up than I know what to do with.   Planning on my first Wild Bunch shoot in a couple of weeks and have already loaded about 3500 rounds of lead and another 1500 hundred rounds of long colt.    I  just like to load and shoot!

it is what it is Lumpy. The room was there, I just put it to use.

 

Maybe a plastic desk chair pad from Staples would give you a hard surface on the floor where you work, making it easier to clean up powder spills and dropped components - especially primers.

 

Just an idea.

Funny, we often talk about the cost of CAS for startup or compared to other hobbies.  Our reloading rooms probably shouldn't be advertised, it might scare off prospective shooters. :P  I don't even want to think about the nice new motorcycle sitting on my reloading bench!:lol:
