Question Help Me Decide on Reloading Bench Dimensions

So I'm on the fence on the dimensions for my reloading bench. I already bought all of the wood and actually have the plywood cut for 8'Lx2'W. I haven't cut the 2x4's yet.

Long story short, I am going to trim the length down to 6 feet as 8 feet is too long for my needs. At this point, I am reconsidering the width, 2 feet seems shallow to me but it could be just right.

So for those of you with benches here is the equipment I am looking to setup on my bench:

1 Dillon 550b
1 Forster Co-Ax
1 Sinclair Stainless Ultimate Trimmer
1 RCBS Chargemaster Powder Dispenser
1 Thumlers tumbler
Various small tools

The bench will have two shelves beneath it with the same dimensions of the top so that is where things will go for storage.

I am going to be putting together one of these workbench kits minus the upper shelving:

So what say you 6'x2' sufficient? or 6'x3'?
