Default Dog food bucket

While my dog was alive, I kept collecting these dog food buckets. They have a nice hinged lid.


Seemed a shame to throw away such a useful bucket, so I began loading one up.

Everything that is needed to load .30-06 and .308. In the bucket. Compact, dust proof and water proof mostly, rain proof fo sho.

In the bucket are dies, a pound of H4350, Varget would work just as well, Lee hand press, Hornady priming tool, lube, shell holders markers, pliers, powder scale, bullets,,,EVERYTHING that you need to run and gun. With this setup, you could run for the bushes, or set on a shooting range all day, set on a prairie dog town all day, or just simply use this rig as your reloading shop for small batches. I have loaded 100 .308's while watching a boring one hour program on TV. I have several of these made up, for reloading or for a range bucket for black powder,,,your imagination is your guide.

Primers?

I have a couple of "grab n go" totes- one holds all the non-perishable junk for two person camping, minus sleeping bags, food and water. No more forgetting tent stakes or TP.

Exactly, the primers are in the Hornady primer tool box probably 500 of them

I like that the buckets are clear, and I can get the right one off the shelf when I'm ready to go, and being square, they stack in nice in the tool box.

I thought about keeping extra reloading supplies on hand just in case, but then I quickly decided it would be better to focus more on loaded ammo. For instance, rather than getting extra dies I would rather spend that money on extra brass and then go ahead and load it. I keep a few back ups though. But that's just the route I decided to go. Each unto his own.
