    I finally got my reloading bench set up. I've got a bunch of brass all prepped and ready to go. Now if only I had some powder and primers I'd be all set to start my new winter hobby.

    Ain't that the truth. Mine started out kinda neat, but now it looks like a disaster area. :D

    Dont feel bad mine does too. But i am in the process of cleaning it all up (2 bedrooms full) I have paper work coming from the ATF to get my manufactoring license. I hope to be in full production by the first of the year. I have one gun store willing to buy from me. Then i will be running the gun shows as well. I will have a web cite too. just going to take a bit of time. :D

    That is great - nice set up.
    I still don't get to spend enough time with my reloading but winter on its way so I am sure I can bulk up.

    Very clean. You'll want to frame that picture, it won't look that way long.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. After I got it set up I realized that its going to be a constant work in progress.:D Figured out that I still want a small shelf for reloading manuals and maybe a smalll cabinet to keep powder in. Guess I'll just have to keep adding as necessary. And still try to keep it clean.:p

    Great start, reloading adds to the shooting experience IMO. It would be fun to see it one year from now! Shelving and a cabinet are good ideas, and you might want to think about reinforcing the table - they take quite a beating during reloading.

    You can keep your reloading area pretty clean - in fact its highly recommended so not to mix any components.

    From when I first built mine:

    **BTW I don't smoke at my bench I just happened to decide to take a picture while I was having a morning coffee and put my stuff down on the bench :) **
