    One place I HIGHLY recommend you reload is any where you can take cover while you are reloading. It's just wise thinking IMO. :D

    I have no space currently in the house we are in.I have a block bldg that houses the well and room for storage.After about 10-12 months,I pulled out my reloading stuff to check on it.I was in horror to see that my press,dies,Wilson trimmer and shellholders got severly rusted.It took 2 days to clean w/naval jelly,steel wool,and oil to repair them.Anything stainless was ok.I know keep everything stored in the house.GA. is humid!

    I'm in my heated basement with my Dillon 550 Press mounted. The whole thing works great.

    Like George, I have an outbuilding that was going unused. It's now set up as half storage (our house has very little) and half my play room. I have an 8 foot table for reloading and a 12 foot table for gunsmithing and other projects. Very happy with that set up, though I do still need to work on climate control.

    A bedroom in the basement. That gives me a temp/humidity controlled environment. Good for the supplies and ammo , as well a nice comfortable place to work.

    If I had a basement that is where I would reload. IMO that is the best place. The controlled temp and a concrete wall for your bench to rest against. A good cup of coffee and there you have it.
