Think I have everything I need. Now I just gotta figure out how to use it all safely. Been reading the manuals but I learn from hands on. Anybody want to mentor the fng?

I like the bench. A few months ago I was looking for a bench and I think I saw it at Northern Tool(?).

Once you've read your equipment and reloading manuals then start asking questions. We'll work through them with you.

Use almost the same bench for my setup, only mine is a lot older and has half as many drawers. I mounted mind on a plywood base and bolted it to the wall. Had to do the last when doing heavy resizing of the 50BMG. I use several different presses so made some 1'X1' 3/4 inch plywood plated finished to match bench and mounted presses to them with 4 captive nuts in the bench to screw them to for quick change out.

looks like you are well on your way to becoming a reloader, congrats!

best advice I can give you is don't rush and pay close attention to what you are doing. don't listen to the radio or have the TV on or any other distractions. reloading is fun (at least to me) but it can be very dangerous if you slip up.

best of luck and have fun!

Load all that in a box, and come to my place. In the shop I have my 4' X 8' welding table that has bolt holes for a press. And as you know, the rifle range is out the front door of the shop. "Red Snake" came out for a loading class a couple months ago. He's produced legitimate 1/4 MOA ammo for his .280 A. I. since then.

Kevin, does one have to put a cheater pipe on the press handle to bump the shoulders on .50 BMG? grin

Yeah, bench is from harbor freight, $150. Not a bad deal, pretty sturdy and heavy. Probably could've saved a few buck building my own.

A creedo I live by more and more, the older and more painful I get.
