I'd like to see some pics of folks reloading areas, don't worry if there messy mine doesn't ever look like 

the nice clean staged shots below :) I bet some of your setups are just incredibly drool worthy.

Ok I'll bite.

Just how long did it take you to clean that bench up for your photo op? :)

If I knew how to get pic's from my phone to the wire I would show my man cave (and take my whoopin')

I'm a new Re-loader, so I don't have much to show - 

But I FILL my cases to the TOP, crimp them tight, and shoot them LOUD with plenty of GUNSMOKE !

In the link above from last year, I showed my messy setup at home.  But I'm hardly ever home any more, so I mounted a 550 to an old B&D Workmate in my brother's garage in San Antone.

What a terrific and super neat setup you have, that's gotta' be a joy to spend hours there. Never heard of Spolar before, just watched them in action on Youtube.....bloody impressive machines!

This is my reloading bench in the hallway leading to my workshop.  The best feature is that it in a climate controlled basement.  I do all my reloading standing up.

Wonderfully neat and well organised, the custom wood shelving for your Dillon gear is a neat touch.

It's changed a bit since these pix. I've added a MEC Grabber and in between are threaded holes for ather reloaders  and equip. to be screwed down with knob screws. Off to the right is my 5' work bench for gun cleaning etc.  The aluminum rail around the bench is for hanging Acro bins where needed while reloading.

I built the bench 42" high, so no need for strong mounts to raise the machines. All machines are grounded to a rod outside.

You guys are some sick people...neatly arranged, spotless reloading rooms and the like. :rolleyes:  SICK, SICK SICK. :P

 

3' Johnson's room is the sign of a down to Earth reloader and I'll bet he can find everything he's looking for.B)

I reload only .45 Colt and 5.56 match ammo for competition (although I just started doing 9mm

until enough reliable bulk ammo is available) so I can keep it fairly simple.  I removed the progressive

head from (on the left of the table top) the RCBS to single stage load my 5.56 match ammo in this shot.

I've reloaded a bunch of stuff in the past, now though I keep it simple.

My angel of a wife gifted me an entire bedroom for a weight room and another for a gun room.  If I don't keep both of them clean she'll crack me upside the head with my own barbell and then shoot me with one of my own guns.  I'm not sick, just scared. :wacko:

Its a happy peaceful place our reloading rooms/area isn't it. Just a great place to unwind and relax and be productive and totally immerse ones self.

Yeah, until you drop that tiny but important piece from the press and it bounces off the toe of your boot and flies off in a direction you don't see to parts unknown.  :lol:

If I drop something it rolls or flies under the 4x4 parked behind me where I reload, never ever just nicely next to my feet :(
