Ok today was like Christmas again! Another stop by the brown UPS truck and this time he dropped off the Hornady L-N-L electric case prep station (Three weeks early) and the Hornady 3 Die set for 9mm… Then also as a surprise he also dropped off the long awaiting RCBS Pro 2000 press!!!

So now I have a few other items I am waiting on from Hornady, two more die sets, their concentricity gauge , L-n-L Auto Charge and their L-n-L Sonic Cleaner with a few shirts & hats…

RCBS still owes me a few shell plates and die set and then in Aug the Forster set will be here…!
So we are constantly working on the little area I have for right now for reloading… Figuring places to get all this gear in and set up is a challenge, but I love it…

Anyhow here are some more photos of the process so far…

I'll steal some of your ideas shamelessly Gunner.....thats my next plan to take over my son's room while he's at college and set up a reloading bench,
That is why I posted these, if I can help anyone that has a little space and needs to figure out how to do this go right ahead...

I have until the end of the year before the garage and garage room is done so I will be in this area for a while at least...

Out of curiosity, why so many different rigs? Not that I wouldn't love to have 'em, just curious.
A few reasons, each one offers something the other don't.. I like to be "covered" and have anything I may need...

I would love to have one unit that has EVERYTHING each one of these offers but that I guess is a dream!

Besides, I personally like the looks of having all the different brands...!

The goods

Cool stuff...
Now get into casting...At least one mold set per caliber. Come on now...you know you want to...
It just makes sense to be able to make your own bullets. Don't forget the muzzle loaders...With casting, you get to play with toxic molten metal...I mean what could be cooler.
DO NOT CAST BULLETS IN YOUR SOCKS... The molten lead will stick to them, and no matter how hard you dance around, it wont come off!!!

A couple of tools you should consider:
The lee hand press...great for something to do while watching the tube:

Also consider the RCBS hand primer...I will never use a press mounted priming ram again!: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduc...rce=froogle&utm_medium=free&utm_campaign=9315

i used to be heavy into the palma shooting and i had one rig set up for just for the reloading of the palma ammo and had a whole area in the reloading room just for that round and how to clean reloading and store it in the reloading brench set up . ..

the other two rigs i had where set up for the rifle and pistol ammo set up .so i basically did not have to fumble around with trying to change out the shell plates and dies ..so it basically just go saight from the get go ..

My hubby just set up his reloading station. Great post to the OP by the way!
I said the same thing to him..."now you need to get into casting". lol
maybe I should take some pics of his set up. :thumb:

I have everything I need to make 100,000 rounds of ammunition in 4 different calibers....

And they are stacked in corner, where my wife occasionally trips over them, and yells at me for wasting our money on something I am to chicken/ignorant to use.

Bullet casting, like arc welding, machining, and hot bluing should be done with the your pant legs bloused or slid over the outside of your boots. There is nothing worse than have some molten or caustic particle burning the crap out of your foot and not having any way to get away from it.
