I hear ya. This is my electronics workbench which is opposite my reloading bench, and all this is packed in an upstairs two bedroom condo. I really need a bigger place.

It's been a hobby since I was really young, so I ended up going to school for it, and now it's my job.

Anyway, that said... I'd like to get into reloading one day. I'm jealous of you guys who have the room and money to reload. I live in an apartment and I just don't have the space or the money. I barely have space or money for what I do have, and that's without reloading.

x2 for na-vah-dah you win, and how sweet is 2 safes and indoor reloading. I'm setting up in my garage but would love to be indoors. If only my office was a little bigger.

My setup.

Rifle on left. Pistol on right.

Most of my stuff is organized in 30 cal ammo cans below the bench.

Awesome thread with some great ideas. Just getting into reloading and will start on my bench tonight. Pics to follow.

I have a question about primer/powder storage. I'm out in Ramona and my bench will be in a garage with no AC. I have a refrig/freezer but don't use the freezer side. Would that be good for powder/primer storage? Anyone else have an issue with high temps in the summer and how do you store your primers/powder?

Follow SAAMI guidelines for storing powder and primers and you should be okay.

Current primers and powders should last years and years in open air as long as you don't have high humidity.

I wouldn't recommend storing them in a place where fast pressure increase could potentially create a bomb (a fridge).

Just imagine the warehouses these powders and primers come from... hot, cramped, etc. They do just fine...

Ok, got the bench started. I'm going to try to do this like "Run My Renovation" where I try to incorporate your suggestions. All within reason of course. Here's a few pics of what I started. I used a vanity from one of my bathroom renovations then framed it to give it strength. My next step is to Spar Varnish the plywood to give it a smooth surface.




All scrap lumber I had laying around. First expense will be the varnish.

Pretty much finished for the most part. A few more things to add here and there but can start reloading as soon as I send some rounds down range!

I was going to get a B&D "Work Mate" but I just realized my old drawing table would be great to use. It has some junk on top but what's taking up the most room is my old, THICK tube tv. The table top isn't extremely thick so the Rock Chucker will be screwed into one or two 3/4 pieces(Maybe only one if I get the RCBS accessory plate) of plywood and then C-clamped.
