Range Reloading
Hope this isn't a duplicate thread...if it is, my apologies, I didn't see the original.

Anyhow, I'd like to start reloading at the range, so I can make immediate changes, but I'm not sure what equipment would best be suited for reloading in that situation. Anyone mind sharing your setup at the range? Any input would be much appreciated.

For what it's worth, I'm not concerned with loading pistol ammo, more focused on long gun accuracy.

Sinclair also makes dies in just about any caliber, adjusting them requires calipers but having your gunsmith drop the reemer in the end of the barrel blank to make a seating depth gauge makes it easier. If this is what you were looking for. MM! you and your Mossboogers and Lee reloading stuff /sigh

That Lee hand press that is in the first link is a great product. That is what I started reloading on. I still use it once in a while. It is nice to sit in front of the tv and prep brass.

Im assuming the man already reloads at home, im taking it as he wants quality portable equipment, not some Lee experimental, Fisher Price, pretend reloader. Dont be offended if thats what you use, they are fine if you only load 10 rounds a night.

I have an old RCBS turrent press and a Lyman single stage set up inside the house, have a few Arbor presses I use at the range.

I would use a portable table and mount the press using wing nuts for quick take down unless you want a permanent mount on something portable. I would build my own table for the best height and space needs.

Thanks for the replies Gents, and my apologies about not getting back sooner. Thanks for all the advice. Is there any advantage to an Arbor press and Wilson dies, vs a Rock Chucker and standard dies? I would think the Wilson dies would produce more consistent ammo, but is it worth getting a whole new setup?

Wilson dies and an arbor press are the best choices for an"At the range setup",and I'd also suggest a Harrell premium powder measure.You can attatch a 1lb container of powder if you are using Hogdon or Accurate or the like.
This isn't a cheap route,but it's about the best you'll find,and also the smallest reloading setup.
