    Thumbs up Reloading benches. I need to see some pictures.

    Always interested in how other folks have their benches
    laid out.
    Please feel free to include cleaning stations too.

    That's my plan too.

    When I do move, only a few items are coming with me.

    I used these plans to build my bench 20+ years ago.
    nice and heavy.
    Build it once and be done with it.

    I built that one years ago....thought 8' long was plenty....even added some drawers....

    Now 8' is.........uh, crowded!



    See where the RCBS APS bench primer is? I removed that, and mounted a Lee quick mount with a Lee APP bolted to it! Now the bench primer shares that spot. stuck on a shelf at the moment.....

    This was a week ago? Because I was loading a .243 Prohunter with RCBS 95g. The rifle is in the corner whilst dialing in.

    now THIS is what a reloading room should look like.... i will post some of mine a bit later.. mine is aabout the same, with a bit more "alaskan" unfinished look... lol

    You should see RanchDog's reloading room... you can actually eat off the floors, and there is a Keg and tap system in his with reloading press arms for dispensing beer... absolutely awesome... could even be a bowling alley in his!!!
