OK folks...Here's my modest reloading area...

Table is a $30 card table from Home Depot....1 Lee Single Stage and a Lee Turret that has been neutered (index removed when I almost had a KB!)

Lee Perfect Powder measure

Lots of Coffee Cans to hold clean brass and dirty brass

Shop Vac in the corner to clean up to keep wife happy.

Notice the presses are C-clamped to a 4x4 piece of wood...Before you laugh too hard...This makes it real easy to take to the range to make test loads

See...you aint gotta have much to reload...I can't crank out a 1000 an hr like one them Dillon's I NEED...but she's getting the job done....

Just trying to encourage others...You really don't have to be all that elaborate to get started.

Now don't get jealous! I started with a Black and Decker folding work bench with the Reloaders special"screwed to it. Yes I said screwed. Didnt have any bolts handy.
As far as the current room That was my first major remodeling when I bought my house. It is actually the Laundry room, but I have taken up more than half so I call it "My Space". And I did the painting myself.

I have mine setup in a storage shed in the back yard that I stuck a 5,000 BTU window unit in. My regular work bench doubles as my primer, all my powder stages, case resizing and brass tumbler work area. I built a little bench between the studs of the shed that I mounted 2 presses on for my resizing/depriming and seating stages. I store prepped and un-prepped brass in those plastic snap shut pencil boxes you buy at the $ stores. Simple and very user friendly.

'neck, check this out. Beats the heck out of coffee cans and they are stackable. I have used them for a couple of years and love them. I even bought a thing that mounts to the wall that they can hang from. I'll try to get pic of that tomorrow.

I would post pics of mine, but someone would probably offer to come clean up for me. I reload so many small volumes of different rounds that things have a way of congregating on horizontal surfaces. IE....my space is cluttered.

Haha Eddybo has the nicest setup on the forum, but he is right it is the most unorganized. Atleast it is not trashy well except the machine shop. haha

Yeah I know mine looks bad...bigsig.

..You don't like coffee cans?

....Look again...I can unclamp my presses in a New York min and go to the range and load "development loads"

Kinda comes in handy...

was just trying to give the newbies something to look at for "WHAT NOT TO DO" by posting mine

Mine is cluttered...and I don't like that...but my "reloading bench" is now a HAM radio area

I have too many hobbies.....

Neck ain't nothin wrong with your setup. I'm in the boat with SJ mine is a homemade portable bulding that isn't big enough, may have to put a room in my shop. I'm with Sig on the bins also, you can get them at Lowe's with the wall mount. Best thing for us reloaders.Later, Mac

Good Post, am right now trying to map out my shop for a reloading area. This has given me good ideas. Thanks.

Couple years ago, I started moving my reloading "stuff" into the garage storage room ... it took about a year to get it done -- wife looking over my shoulder. I remember her asking one time, "I thought this room was for the yard stuff?" -- I softly responded, "Yes, Dear - remember we talked about it and I said I could put all that stuff in the pool room since we only use the pool a few months each year." She said, "Well I guess so." -- HOME FREE!!

























A "Brick" of .223 ready to go!



Nothing fancy!! As you can see, I use single stage presses for all my reloading. Never owned anything else. I keep most of the brass I plan on shooting soon, all prepared for final loading (polished, sized, deprimed, trimmed, and much of it already primed). When I get ready to load, drop the powder, seat the bullet. Has worked for me for many years!!

Cap'n I like the single stage for rifles, but I have to tell you about my Dillon square deal B. That little press can turn out 300 rounds of "good" pistol ammo every hour. You could already have all that brass loaded if you had one. LOL. Seriously I thought I had died and went to heaven when I got mine. I was like a kid with a new bike, I couldn't wait to get home to pull the handle. Mac

Yea - I know .... being retire and enjoying the good life, time is not an issue .... if I loaded up all the brass I had - then what would I do? Guess, I could get a Dillon and start drinking and chasing women with all the free time!! NO - that would be too expensive and the wife may not look kindly upon it!! Better for me to load them one at a time - for now!!
