I'm refinishing an old drafting table I have that I use for my reloading bench and got to thinking it might be cool to see pics of everybody's reloading area. I'll post pics of mine when I get done with the urethane and get it back together. Anybody want to post pics of their reloading set up?

My reloading bench doubles as a fly tying bench. Right now I'm set up for tying flies but when I want to reload I just pull it out and bring my chair around to the other side.

I am to low tech to post pics. Mine is L shaped, it is 8' x 6' and 2' wide. I have a dedicated room for gun stuff. Right now it is a mess so I am glad no one can see it. It has a old RCBS Rock Chucker and a old Dillon 550 B on it. After I retire at the end of the month I will probably add a Redding T-7 Turret Press to the mix.

I have a RCBS Rock Chucker and a Redding T-7 on my bench,, used to use the T-7 more that than the RC. That was until I bought a set of the Hornaday Lock and Load adapters, now I have all my dies in the Hornaday Adapters and use the RC more, quick and easy to swap and no die adjustments each time. Check them out before you buy another press.

Here is my finished happy place. I have been collecting the tools, restoring an old press and building the log bench for a few months now. Time to get to loading!

Love the character in that table! Looks like a nice setup to me.

Cool looking table! I'm almost done refinishing mine but the chilly weather is slowing me down big time. The urethane is taking days to dry between coats.

It is an old 1958 RCBS A2 press. I picked it up at a garage sale when I was stationed in South Dakota, but it had come from Shemya AFB originally. The guy had bought it from a DRMO sale when they closed down operations out there. Pretty ironic I ended up stationed up here and brought it back home... so to speak.

Here is mine. RCBS press and nothing fancy or fast. Now I gotta get the wife to let have room for a shotgun bench.

Sure turned out nice! Thanks for sharing!

Very nice...!!! Though I'm not quite understanding why you mounted it on the side like that...???
With the bench being pretty small and with the cabinet on one side that was the only place to mount it so it wouldn't block the stool or the drawers. It works well with the workflow.

G'Day Fella's,

Here is an older image of my reloading area.

It has changed a bit in more recent times.
This includes the addition of more die sets (only Green & Blue colored die boxes), bullets and cases and also, a bullet trap on the left hand side of the bench.

Regards
D'oh!
Homer

I'm ashamed to take a picture of mine right now. It's kinda like my reloading room needs a woman's touch without letting her touch any of it! She once stirred paint with a RCBS primer tube cuz she couldn't imagine what else it was good for!
