One of the many benefits of having the kids grow up and leave home is that you can take their old bedrooms and turn them into a loading and ammo storage room. I really need to paint the walls, but I hate to paint!

Left to right are my 30+ year old RCBS Single Stage, my newer Dillion RL-550 set up for 9mm and .45 ACP, my 1980's old Dillion RL-450 B set up for .223.

The white looking bullets on the far left are the hand-rolled paper cartridges for the .54 cal 1863 Sharps replica.

What's wrong with the "Toy Story" motif?

Nice setup there!

Here's mine. I sort of took over the back of the pantry. since it's just me and my little dog here, I didn't have to go through a permission process. It sure is nice in the winter and when its hot to be able to load in comfort.
The hard non porous top really makes it easy to collect spilled powder granules.

Default Reloading space

Besides the garage, I have a closet as a reloading room.
If you don't have the room and need to take it down, you can use a Black&Decker "WorkmateŽ 425 Portable Project Center and Vice" or a Frankford Arsenal "Portable Reloading Stand" for $64.99.
Harbor Freight has a WorkMate knock-off ("Folding Clamping Workbench with Movable Pegs" for $19.99) and a small work table that you could move around ("Adjustable Height Heavy Duty Workstation" for $27.99).

Or, a Lee Classic Reloader for each caliber and a good leather or plastic mallet.

No I traded her for a cheep bottle of whisky and a pack of smokes, and I got a deal out of that trade.

My re-loading bench is set up in my bed room sense the ex-wife is not here I can do what I want to.

Here is mine, a work in progress that I can only work on a little bit at a time. I need more shelves, maybe this weekend. Then, of course, the window treatments......

Mack Bolan,

fwiw, when i first got married, i bolted my press to a 2x6...stored behind the couch until used...which i c-clamped to a coffee table covered with a towel. set up was minutes, take down was equally quick.

my presses are now c-clamped to a sturdy 3x6 bench.

I have seen people do good work on a temporary basis with a black and decker workmate, and a press bolted to a board they could clamp into it.
