Basically it comes down to what you're willing to give up in order to get what you desire. Also, while I've always had a strong interest in firearms and reloading, and have always had a selection of firearms, the bulk of what I now own have been purchased in more recent years AFTER our house was paid for and our daughter was through college. Priorities are necessary and family definitely comes first.
Really nice answer. I bet you are glad you didn't like shoes!

What do you need a bunch of shoes for? You can only wear one pair at a time.

Aren't #2 and #8 basically the same?

Okay, got around to taking a few pictures. My shop is best described as
10 pounds of sh** in a 5 pound bag. So keep that in mind, albeit I have
made some improvement in space and organization over the past few
months.

1) I have been casting some bullets the past week, got about 1000 .452 for
.45ACP, wheel weights water quenched. Also you see a bunch of 5.56 once
fired brass, waiting for it turn.

2) The front of the shop. You can see the tumbler on the front mess. umm
I mean bench.

3) The main reloading bench.

4) My lathe

5) The gray box on the wall to the left is the Phase converter, so I can run
the lathe and mill with both have 3 phase motors, my shop has a 240V 400
amp service. The Bridgeport and my sand blast cabinet.

6) My other hobby bench, Rocketry, also the A/C hiding in the corner, and
the gun safe.

7) Misc tools, Ellis bandsaw and peeking from behind the card board is my
Dynasty 300DX welder.

*drool* is the best I can come up with. You have my utmost respect, admiration and jealously of such an amazing collection so efficiently organized. I hope one day far and long down the road as you said when the house is paid for and kids are grown up and out, to be able to obtain a mere fraction of what you have amassed. Maybe by showing those pictures to my wife, she'll see that what I want to have "isn't that bad" as she is a member of the "what would you possibly need all those guns for" club. She enjoys shooting and sees reason in owning one firearm to fill each of just a few purposes, but doesn't share the passion I have for them.

Looks organized. I understand the 10 in 5 concept.
Most of my tools are woodworking, with a smaller light metal bench.

I guess this is an ok place to post this question.

Well, Ive been casting lead bullets for a while now and have a pretty good bead on it. But, I have a nearly endless supply of copper from work. They just throw the welding tips and cones away, so Ive been picking them up and bringing them home to turn in for scrap. Probably thirty pounds a week or so. How difficult would it be to cast copper? Or are the copper rounds on the market machined?

Perhaps a copper bullet thread would be great.

Does anyone have any details on their cast bullet station of the reloading bench.
Sh'ure would like some ideas.
