    thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I have reloaded a lot of differant types of ammo with my dad at his house, he has the piggyback progressive stuff for 9mm and .45 acp and does alot of 30.06 match shooting, this is my first setup of my own though, still need to get a powder measure and some other supplies but have enough to keep me busy for awhile

    Mine is kinda messy right now. With dove season here and the Kinsley Kids shoot coming up I have been loading 2 to 3 hundred shells each day.

    Looks like it's coming together, maybe slowly, but definitely surely.

    Agedhunter, great start. Anxious to see the finished product. The bench looks sturdy.

    Fast Forward, look forward to seeing the pics when you get them up.

    What brand mini lathe is that Jack?

    I assume the mini mill is the same brand as well?

    I finally got around to getting a pic of my bench. It's not much but it gets the job done just fine.

    Here's a couple of photos of my little set up. I'm just getting started, so I suspect there will be expansion and reworking yet to be done. I bought most of the equipment off of a buddy of mine who decided he didn't like reloading, so just about 90% of what you see in this photo only cost me $100.00. If you subtract the $65.00 of recyclable brass he gave me along with the equipment, I think I did pretty well over all. :eek: He even threw in the bench... it's not great, but it will certainly do for now. Nice to have great friends sometimes. :D
