    Since CMG posted up pics of his reloading setup, got me thinking. We post pics of everything else, why not take a photo of your reloading bench and see whose is the cleanest and most laid out! I will post some pics up later!

    Cobra will win this. Hands down. Mark's bench is alarmingly clean.

    The Results.......

    For those with a Hornady, I put the large handle screw on the BOTTOM, not the top. This makes for a much easier and shorter "radiused" cycle and has reduced "right arm fatigue" a lot.

    This neat little plastic looking sleeve simply slides up and keeps the brass intact on the shuttle. It stopped bouncing all over the place which occasionally happened and you'll see the attached "wool" piece on the bottom of the v-block. It keeps pressure on the bottom of the brass for an easy entrance into the shell plate.

    Here's our setup!
    1050,650, and SL900. The jugs underneath are filled with 380, 9mm, 40, 45, 38, 357, 38 super, and 44 mag

    The cement mixer is what we tumble our .50 cal brass in and 2 tumblers are in the photo, we have 4 total.

    I single stage .50 and this is all the stuff, well and the drill press from the 2nd photo to chamfer the primer pockets.

    That hydraulic press is sick. Is that what you size your .50 cal with?

    Here are my two benches.

    This bench is home to my casting equipment and LNL AP which I use for loading pistol.

    This bench is the first bench I built and has my LNL Class that I use for loading rifle and a Lee c-press that I use for punching out bad primers when I need to and hardness testing my cast bullets.

    Holy crap! That's a serious setup. I love it.

    Does that two hp motor run the hydraulics on that black press?

    Thanks! Yes, that is what i re-size .50 on. It is a lot slower, but way easier on your body! Takes me about 45 min to an hr to re-size 1k

    Yes it does. That is strictly for re-sizing .50 like i mentioned in previous post. Currently trying to get rid of the shotgun press because Ive never used it and would like to replace it with another 650. Have one set up at all times for 124 LRN 9mm and another setup for H&G 68's(The bullet that would have been JMB's favorite)!!!!
