I am trying to form a club..
What I want is a world class reloading room where members can come and use all the best gear and collaborate.
What I see is setting up AT LEAST a dozen stations with single stage and progressive machines, including pistol, rifle shotgun... Possibly a nice casting area, a couple or three rooms to isolate the noisy work like tumbling, the hot work, casting and the general loading area.
Add to that a coffee pot, and a library of dies, as well as literature..., a store of consumables including powder by the ounce so a guy doesn't have to take out a loan to work up a load...
I would start with every scrap of gear I currently own.. A Dillon 650, RCBS Big Max, Hollywood Universal Turret, Micro Precision press, Hollywood Senior.. Case polisher and separator, Star Bullet lube-sizer...
But as quickly as possible add all the current string of Presses from RCBS, Dillon, Redding, Lyman..
And put them out for the members to use.
"Hey, I need that Dillon 1050 for an hour Monday, and I will need the automatic primer tube filler for large primers and the .45 ACP tool-head. "
Ok Bob... yer open from 7-8PM...
Shop will be well lit, plenty parking, close to food if possible...
So I am trying to make a poll here. I need to find out as much as possible and I need the help of the Membership here to do it. If the poll thing doesn't pan out, drop a line.
We are talking Mid-Town Anchorage here, and I have sights on 3 locations right now, all are a bit expensive, but nice.
Here are the questions that will help me determine if this can work:
1. Would you join at $30 a month?
2. Would you join at $100 a year?
3. What do you usually load?
4. What hours would you want to participate?
So... this is a poll... I want to thank you for participating should you do so.
Looks like the poll is live, but is a checkmark poll.
If you have time, please tell me your calibers, and hours you would like access.
