    Reloading benches are fairly cheap to make so over engineering them doesn't raise the cost all that much. I have a bench with a top made from edge glued 2x6s. The front and back rails are 2x6s and the legs are 4x4s. They are joined using...

    If you look at the press in the photos in this link you will see the "extra" hole on it. Perhaps it is the exact same press. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?78804-new-life-for-a-Redding-25-Turret-press

    That's a good question. I have a later #25 and it does not have that extra hole. I got my press around 2000 which was the tail end of when these were made. There were some variations apparently. I think moving the pin to the other hole would...

    I'll add another vote for the Frankford Arsenal. I like mine very much. I've used it for about 4 years I think. No issues and checks out against my balance.

    Palmetto State has Federal Automatch for $26/325 with free shipping for 4 boxes or more with no limit. So for 8 cents a piece, I ordered 7 boxes. These are for shooting not for "safekeeping."

    If you plan on loading a lot of 223 like some do, I'd recommend the World's Finest Trimmer to take care of case length. It is fast and not too expensive. I just remove crimps from primer pockets with an inside deburring tool (motorized, of...
