Do you have a dedicated/permanent reloading bench setup? I don't. Mine is temporary. It's a bar height, small footprint, metal table I bring from the garage to inside of the house and attach/place whatever equipment I need for the given activity. Sure it takes extra time to set up and take down but I don't want to do any of it in the garage and don't want to leave it up all the time in the house though I could do so in my office. Maybe I'll change some day and leave it set up.

No point to this thread other than to make conversation. If you care to post pics that's nice (though I know there are other pic threads) - I just don't have any since, again, mine is temporary and not set up right now.

My bench is permanently attached to the wall with 3 collapsing brackets. I had to be able to fold it down to keep Mamma's car in the garage.

I bought an unfinished dining room table years ago and added a bookshelf to the top back of it, added a couple more shelves and put a clear coat on it and never looked back. I also have 2 large metal cabinets with all the overflow equipment, brass, bullets, powder, etc......

I'll add that my equipment and consumables are kept in storage bins in an inside closet.

Yes, dedicated and permanent. Small room off the living room. The cabinet on the left is ammo and component storage. Can't see the gun safes from this angle.

I converted my storage building to my reloading shed. I insulated it and have an a/c unit that keeps it around 80 degrees all the time.

Don't use cheap shelves.

I put this bench together about ten years ago, I think. It is built of the kind of furniture they use in high school chemistry labs. The drawer units were once one piece but I cut it in two and added veneer to close off the ends. The bench top is sturdy enough for a fat old man to jump up and down on and probably weighs 150 pounds. It's virtually indestructible.

I went to Habitat for Humanity and bought a big solid core door and mounted it to the wall at bar height in my gun room. It is hell for stout and has more space than I'll ever need.

Luckily my woman likes guns and stuff so our office is in the formal di ing room and the office is my shop. Built this off plans from a website. Great plans love my shop.

I'm a fairly low volume loader. My bench is pretty basic but functional for my loading needs. The bench and shelves are bolted to the wall with lag bolts in the man cave. I framed the bench up to be stout and it is rock solid. The press is bolted through a metal plate. The scale and trickler are at eye level when I am seated. The back wall of the shelves is peg board. It has storage beneath it as well as a power strip on the side and the room is well lit. I did have to resort to a large cabinet for additional storage.
Edited to add: The wife refers to it as the "shrine to the bullet".

I am building a dedicated reloading room now. I work a little on it when I get a chance and hope to start moving my stuff by end of month. I always have had mine setup in extra bedroom.
