    Looking good, Ryan. You'll be producing good rounds from that outfit. Thanks for the pictures.

    Well, I started putting my reloading room together just about a year ago now. I think I have done well so far, but of course there is always room for improvement.

    Looks good CJ. I like that little building. i need to get me one set up for all my bigger tools...

    Bandsaw, drillpresses, drum sander, mini lathe, both air compressors and a mill.

    CJ, very nice. It will surely do as a mancave.

    My little building is an old bathhouse here at the campgrounds. It was condemned in 1990 (the state didn't like our sewer system) and sat as a storage building for 21 years. About a year ago now, I started digging through it looking for some stall dividers that I could see in the back. By the time I got enough stuff out of the way, I found all the dividers were rusty and splitting. :( Took basically the entire contents of the building to a scrap yard.

    So then I had an empty building that we can't allow guests to go into... so I claimed it. The old shower room (which you can't see in the pictures) is storage for our two mopeds , out-of-season clothing, etc. Basically is serves as our garage.

    You can actually still see the toilet flanges set in the concrete in the first picture I posted. Filled them with crushed lime until about an inch from the top, then spray foam. No smell at all (and it doesn't hurt that nothing has gone down those drains for over 20 years).

    I've spent enough time getting that place set up just so that I haven't done nearly as much loading as I would like. But I still have a bit of factory ammo from before I got the equipment, so it's not critical yet. And I think I'm done moving stuff for a while... so I'll get to loading more here shortly.

    That's a fine base you're starting with.

    Don't fill it intentionally just because it feels empty; it'll fill up on its own before you know it.
    And start saving your peanut butter jars. They're the handiest little container ever made.
