Default Post your reloading rig!

Ok, I spent a ton of time reading around trying to figure out how I could reload living in an apartment. One thing that helped me with ideas was was seeing others rigs so post them up! Here is my new setup it's about 20 minutes old so I don't have my press and powder measure setup but check it out:







It's just an unfinished oak tv stand I had an extra shelf put in. It cost me like $140. The stool was like $30, I wanted something that wouldn't allow me to lean back and get distracted. The stand is on wheels and the stool should fit on the top so I can roll it to a closet when not in use.

OK your turn.

Be careful about using that tumbler indoors. They will put lead dust in the air from the spent primers.

This is what I just took down when we sold our house (Closing tomorrow, WooHoo!) But I have a Dillon 550B that I haven't put up yet.

Here's what I store stuff in:

Looks great guys. I just got my press set up the other day and loaded my first rounds last night, successfully. All went boom with no problems. Still getting all my stuff and putting together the bench and accessories.

Here is the first half of the Dillons.
I have not finished the bench down the other side of the room to mount the other 8 or so presses yet...

I have something like 14 reloading presses, but only 8 of them are Dillons.

Randal,

That is a slick case trimmer you have on the middle left Dillon!!! Is that press' only job to trim, chamfer and debur brass? (using the other open stations)

I bet that beats the snot out of hand trimming brass.

Did you have to make any tradeoffs based on size for some of the gear you were buying, instead of getting the "one you really want" that wasn't going to fit? (just curious)

Yes.
That 650 with the casefeeder can lube, decap, size and trim about 600 rounds per hour.

The edges of the case mouth are just square and don't need to be deburred.
The trimmer cuts so cleanly that there are no burrs to worry about after tumbling to remove lube.

Me thinks you go through a LOT more ammo than I do, but that is a real testament to the going the 650 Route for volume.

Like I said before... pretty slick.

Less compact and tidy, but it only cost $30 at Dixieline for the table, and a block of wood and some clamps.

not for me, i just got whatever i needed, and built the bench to fit all of the gear accordingly.

I'm planning to buy a new press in the next few weeks (I've been sharing one with my brothers at another location, but this one will be at my house), so no pix to post just yet.

I've been mentally deciding what all I need to buy in addition to the press, which got me thinking about what kind of cabinet / workbench to buiild for it. I wanted it to have enclosed storage, a large work area and be solidly built. As I started designing it in my head and making a buildsheet for a trip to the Home Despot, I came up with a plan...

Earlier this week, I went out on Craigslist and picked up a FREE large metal desk. It's heavy as can be, but it has a large level surface area to work on and I'll be putting (lockable) casters on the legs so I can move it around the garage if needed.

The nice thing will be having lot's of drawers close at hand for tools, dies, tool heads and other accessories. Given the amount of space I should have behind the press, it may turn into my 'gunsmithing' table too - no more fear of spilling solvents on the dining room table and incuring the bosses wrath.

The best part... did I mention it was FREE?

Tje 650 is the case prep press.

I used to have only 2 550's, but that was when I only loaded for about 25 cartridges.
Now I load for about 40 cartridges.
One 450, three 550's, two 650's and two 1050's.
Then a collection of single stage, turret and arbor presses as well.

Like I said, I think you shoot more than I do. I'm guessing you shoot more than I would if I had that thing called "free time".

40 Plus calibers you can see by the blocks on the right I change them out a lot. I really enjoy making ammo and like it this way just fine. I am planning on getting at least one more 550 and 3 case feeders.

Did you know that the 550 casefeeders only work for pistol cartridges?
I might have an extra 550 when you are ready for one.

That's to distract you from the secret 1940's dentist lamp that is the secret of the whole operation.

the two stools were left by the previous owner and I foolishly used one to repaint the house. The table was picked up off the street as well. The only money spent has been on bullets and the blue parts.

No I bought the gear and then the cart to fit it. The only thing I was worried about is after the table top stuff is put in having space to move around but it looks like a folding tv tray (another piece that can go in the closet) will work to hold my reloading book and notes leaving the rest of the cart top for trays. If i really run low on space I can get another tv tray and they take up almost no room in storage.

Btw This is the other cart I as looking at, the down side is that most places take a month or two to get it to you. It looks like it would fit the bill and you can get it for around 170-190 online(the bigger one)

Sorry for the off topic post.... I didnt want to start another thread, and I thought Randalls response may be helpful to others..

Hey Randall, how do you case lube with the 650 after putting the cases in the case feeder?
And if you lube the cases, then put them in the feeder, what lube are you using so as not to get everything coated in lube?
Since I have 5-6 5gal buckets of .223, I would love to do 2 steps on my 650 instead of one at a time.
I was going to size on one of my RCBS rock chuckers... I was worried case lube would get all over my 650 feed parts if I tried to use that..

Thanking you in advance for any and all help..

No pics of my set up but sence I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment right now I do all my reloading in, on and around a footlocker in my bedroom that is only slightly larger than the one I had when I was in the Marines. When I am done it all gets put back into the locker and locked or into two 5-gallon buckets in the back bottom of the closet.
When I am loading I sit on the corner of the bed. I have loaded a few thousand rounds this way on a rock chucker. It's not the most comfortable way to do it but it is the only way I can do it where I live right now.

I did buy a house this weekend and should be moving mid June at the latest. Any house worming gifts would be much appriciated.

Hey Randall, how do you case lube with the 650 after putting the cases in the case feeder?
And if you lube the cases, then put them in the feeder, what lube are you using so as not to get everything coated in lube?
Since I have 5-6 5gal buckets of .223, I would love to do 2 steps on my 650 instead of one at a time.
I was going to size on one of my RCBS rock chuckers... I was worried case lube would get all over my 650 feed parts if I tried to use that..

Thanking you in advance for any and all help..
he uses a lube die. i do the same on my 650 (got the idea from him)

I have done extensive modifications to improve lube capacity and flow rate.

I'll post a pic of my old, "low budget" reloading bench. I've gone high class now though and moved it to it's own table and gotten it off my tool box drawer.
I've added some nicer reloading components to!

This worked good though...
