    Reloading Bench

    I'm regularly reloading 8 calibres now (small beer to some of you) and although I cleared some kit over the last few months my bench is becoming cluttered and I'm finding that I am constantly juggling kit to make space for different jobs. My volumes are going up and my lack of better organised workspace is starting to prod my reloading OCD.

    Project Gunroom is now on the cards for 2015-2016 but I'm not sure the bench can wait that long.

    I've got some lovely kit but wondered how you lot were set up? I think I could enjoy the kit better if I was better spaced and squared away. Any recommendations on benches rather than hitting a timber yard and disappointing myself with my carpentry skills?

    Anyway here is me now:

    Crikey mate how much ammo do you churn out of the Dillon at a time that you need a stack truck to carry it away?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Feels like it sometimes!

    The weight of my range bag is often the topic of conversation on a club night.

    I don't have a photo of mine, but it's the simplest form of RCBS press bolted to a lump of hardwood, clamped to the kitchen worktop with two G-clamps. On top of the block of hardwood is also a set of Lee beam scales. Then a tub of powder, a box of bullets, two plastic scoops and a plastic funnel. It's a bit minimalist.

    Only if you also build an extension to my flat to put it in! My minimalist setup works just fine for the low-intensity use I make of it. It only needs to come out three or four times a year. I actually try and keep all my kit quite compact and minimalist. I think it comes from always having to share space with people who don't share my interests (in the boot of a car, or in the cupboard under the stairs, etc) and having to carry stuff on my back in public transport discretely.

    This is mine - one end of the new man cave I've built up the garden.
