That's what I used for my top, it's working out pretty good
How long will it take you to outgrow it ?
I usually can soon as the paint is dry .
It’s rare that it’s ever this clean but here is mine...
Thanks, it’s going to be a great work platform for many years to come, I hope.
I’m going to concentrate on replenishing my ammo stockpiles with one or two rifle and pistol builds when my shoulder gives out and needs a rest.
Winter here is the time I am in the bench room the most . Doing rescue guns has really pushed my reloading to the back . ( with thousands of rounds loaded ..... not a big rush to load ) My plan is to get the rescue guns done ..... then do 3 builds . By then I probably will be to old to shoot .
LOL. I haven't reloaded since October & my practice ammo for the XDM's is depleted, had to shoot factory JHP's the other day!!!
Well boys and girls, it’s time for me to start posting in the ammo/reloading section since the room has turned out it’s first loads for the .40S&W!!!
I still need to get the 2 upper cabinets installed but I couldn’t wait cuz I’m out of XDM40 food.
I had been wanting to get away from the rink-dink scale support so I built a scale condo with a garage....
What, no overhead door or remote?
Just kidding. I am a big advocate for utilizing space anyway you can.
I am getting a large heavy duty shelving unit /cabinet gifted to me this week that I want to use as a reloading center.
Just haven't figured out how to set it up yet.
It has to be in my garage and I have to be able to put everything away to keep it clean. I just don't have the room to leave it set up.
My first place to reload was in my woodworking shop on my outfeed table... I would cover all my stuff with a few bed sheets so the sawdust (man glitter) didn’t get on it all...
Off to the races there Jim !
Take lots of pictures of the set up ..... it is only clean & organized that well once ...... or maybe that's just in my world .
Well Ron, I’ll kind of deal with it like my woodworking shop. When it gets too dirty, messy, cluttered & I can’t find what I’m lookin for that’s when I clean it up.
I’m to the point where I need another bench. My tumbler, strainer, and media has been moved to the floor, there’s powders on the shelf I can’t see, and a lot of real-estate taken up by shell holders and Plano boxes full of halfway and completed reloads. Need a better way to organize brass too. Bought a bunch of lumber, haven’t got any farther lol
For the volume of brass that goes through the shop I decided to get a dedicated unit to handle it all. I sort till Tupperware containers are full then put brass in gallon size bags and into the totes till I either want to use them or they get sold....
I started with a empty bed room ...... then added bench ..... then 3 shelf units ...... a juke box ......stereo .... drafting table ......rolling tool chest ......gun cabinet ......filing cabinet ....2 office chairs . Every space is full . The brass & supply s & casting equipment are stored else where . I need a bigger house !
Jim....about the toaster oven.
Is that for nourishment or are you using it somehow in your reloading process?
Stranger things have happened.
I have a oven in my room too . Mine is for PC bullets . I take it to the car port so the fumes don't stink up my room .
Powder coating bullets maybe
And I have to ask....what would be the reason or purpose to powder coat bullets?
Other than making them look nice.
Cast lead bullets have a tendency of lead fouling a barrel. One of the ways to combat this is by powder coating the bullet. The powder coat acts as a lubricant between the bullet and barrel to help prevent leading. An alternative method would be a wax based lube. You can also use a Alox based lube. But in recent years powder coating has proven to be a very effective method.
