Not a bad idea at all. I'm moving so I'll have to redo my boom room pretty soon.

Here's the BEFORE picture:


Going to be on the grind all weekend to move that gigantic bench across a few states to make the AFTER picture.

I spent a few years designing this in my head. Lots of light, casefeeder cords run through the support tubes and under the bench, primer drop tubes through the bench, beefed up cabinets that can hold primers and cases of bullets, ect...

The Spolar shotshell hydro press can knock out some serious amounts of ammo in a little time.

I have another 550, Co-Ax and 50 BMG reloader (feeding the Barrett and AI-50 with factory ammo isnt gonna happen) behind where this pic was taken. I need to get some new and better pics.

I know Jesse T being the organizational freak that he is, will have some great pics to post here too.



-I saw the plans to his new reloading room. THAT will be noteworthy;
as for now, all youll see is gun cases and factory cases of ammo piled on top of each other.

Looking further down the bench to the 550s and 50 BMG press.

The 1050 on the left is set up to make 300 Whisper/Blackout.

Both the 550s have been tweaked to load precision rifle ammo, everything from 223 Ackley to 338 Lapua. The Prometheus powder measure/dispenser is accurate down to the single kernel of powder. Now if only I could tighten up the loose nut behind the scope. The only pistol calibers I load on them is 41 Mag and 454 Casull, all the other pistol calibers get loaded on the 1050s. Sad to say I might have more invested in toolheads than I do in 1050s.

The Forster Co-Ax press does not get much mileage these days. Its main use is pointing up bullets with a Whidden die and teaching people how to reload. The Co-Ax is a great press. My favorite single stage press.

Before I got my first 1050 about 15 years ago, I loaded on the RCBS Ammo-Master press on the end. It sucked so bad I almost threw it in the trash when the 1050 showed up. But I kept it for some reason. Turns out when you strip out all the progressive guts, it is a damn good 50 BMG press.

Yep, they work pretty well for that and I just happen to have a few empties laying around.

Wow Hoser, your reloading room is worth more than my car. And I have a new car.

Here is my Reloading/Gunsmithing room. Gear and guns are kept in a different place.

Here is how mine started:





And as it looks now:

I feel woefully inadequate after seeing Hosers room , but here is mine. The wife made the sign for me. Brass, bullets, and more powder and primers are stored below the bench in the cabinets. My plan is to build another 8' stained bench to replace the bench and shelves in the third picture. I left the big safe out for OPSEC.

Finally remembered to take a pic of where I keep my spare toolheads...

The 1050 toolheads are mounted on delrin posts that a friend of mine made. They are mounted on drawer slides so they can slide out so I dont have to dig through the toolheads to get to a different caliber.

Wow...I thought I was cool having a corner of my garage with my Lee reloader and a picture of John Wayne.

What are you using to hang your weapons on the wall. And the FN is really cool, Ive been wanting one of those for a while.

I have my 90% of my reloading confined to a 4 foot by 4 foot area. The only things that are elsewhere are my shotgun kit.

Great looking bench. Mine is 2 x 8's and may cover with 3/4 plywood so it's more flat. Great ideas on this thread. :)

Assaulter,

NICE reloading bench, what is the height of your counter top? I'm building one similar to yours for my Dillon 550B.
Thanks for your help!
