I have never used the powder thrower, I prefer to weigh it manually, but I am not a bulk re-loader. Just a hobby for me!

Yeah, get some A/C and add a fridge for the beer, and it doubles as a place to hide out from the Old Lady!
Thanks Gordo, my thoughts exactly!

I think I'll use the hand primer as well, after a bit of a play with it yesterday I realized it's a pain in the arse (do with it what you will freudian slippers ) to prime the brass that way.

Heres my new setup. Its all Redding and RCBS. I dont have a powder throw.. I got it from a benchrest shooter who weighed every round.. It takes longer but I guess its accurate.. The case prep center comes in handy making the Arisaka rounds though!..

This is mine. In order to save space, I mounted the powder measure and primer tool on 2x4s that slide in and out of the black clamp you can see on the back of the table, right center. It works well and really saves me a lot of space. You can see the 2x4s on the shelves on the left.

Aus,Lach

Great start! One thing I did think of you need to get some desiccant in the safe ASAP. Also you could make just a box type shelf on top at the rear of your bench to attach your powder charger to it. You will need a scale of some type if you do not have one. But looks good and with the upgrades you mentioned that will be great. Just keep it as dry as possible in there. A little cold will not hurt!

Default Here is my room

The room is crowded but effecient. There is also a closet within the room that acts as an ammo and component bunker.As you look into the room on the left hand side is the reloading bench that wraps around to the back side of the room. There is a RCBS Rock Chucker, a Dillon550, a Redding Turret and a RCBS Partner press that is just for decapping brass. Shelves wrap around above the bench and hold parts, books, dies etc. below the bench are storage containers for brass and other equipment. A pegboard holds tools. In the center of the room is an island work bench (cluttered as you can see). The right side of the room is the gun racks. rifles along the bottom and in the center of the right side wall flanked by semi-auto handguns on the right and revolvers on the left.

Now you are just bragging. Seriously though, great looking set-up.

Thanks. Took 40 years to get to this, so just like to show it off. Hopefully it will inspire younger people to get involved as well.

Everything except for the rim fires. Reloading to me is as fun as the shooting. Wish I had more time but can't retire just yet. Took up prarie dog shooting about 11 years ago and so mass loading of 22 centerfires and wildcats became a requirement. Been going to Montana and South Dakota every year for a 3-4 day shoot, usually averages about 300 rounds per day. First few trips I was shooting more than that daily but as I became more interested in the longer range aspect of the shoot and wanted to clean less barrels while shooting I reduced to 300 per day tops. Can't beat the fun factor.
