Nope, I went in! By the way, I'm the same God fearing man coming out of my closet as I am stepping in.

That is sick, no one should have an area that neat and clean.

He cleaned it just for the picture.

It's the Jarhead in me. Yes everything gets put back in order after each session as not to scramble my three calibers together. (Large rifle and pistol primers look awefully similar)

We'll see what happens to that neatness once you're loading for 12 calibers, have 25 different kinds of powder, 20 bricks of primers, 10,000 assorted bullets, etc...

For now it's definitely a nice looking set-up. A man with a closet to call his very own is unusual.

I got lucky and have our spare bedroom for my toys and 2 loading benches. I've got another bench full of bullet casting stuff in the garage.

The thought of having to move to a different house gives me nightmares.

I was living with a buddy of mine and when she moved out I turned her old room into a "Testosterone Room." The room is a combination between weightlifting, reloading and hunting gear. I've got a four post power rack with olympic weights in the back/center of the room and my hunting gear on each side of the reloading bench that is not seem in the pic.

I reload for three guns in following calibers: AR-15 .223, Rem 700VS .22-250, Kimber CDP .45.
(actually I switched from "reloading" the AR-15 to straight "loading" with RVO brass and said to hell with FL sizing)

Bench is always in clean condition as to not scramble my large rifle primers with my large pistol primers. Only other addition so far is a vice mounted on the left. The vice is red to match the Lee turret press.

I can't wait to have a basement room dedicated to my hobbies. I can do the deeds with what I have now, but at the cost of a little crampness.

Very nice, but what's that red thing bolted to the bench?

The last time I moved, I had to schlep a literal ton of ammo and reloading components, plus guns and gear. I'm never leaving this place.

Indeed, what is that? Gargoyle, what's your joy and comfort level with the Lee turret press? I've been considering buying the whole turret kit, under a hundred and have a whole set up seems too good to pass up. But then the Lee naysayers...would you recommend this press?

I've got no problems with the "red thing" bolted to my bench. I've loaded tens of thousands of .45 and 9mm on my turret press. Rugged, reliable, no problems. I've got the three-hole turret with Lee dies, and an auto-disk powder measure.

Definitely not the fastest set-up, but I have complete control over all the stations - I actually removed the auto-index gizmo that allows this press to be used as a "semi-progressive." I can consistently hold OAL tolerance to within .001", and the powder measure is good to +/- 1/20 gr. - even with flake powders like Red Dot.

I highly recommend this affordable, durable and accurate set-up.

Everything that Shane said and...
The Lee turret press is one of the best pieces of equipment that Lee makes. Some Lee stuff is shady, however, this press is good to go!
Complimented with Lee carbide dies, a factory crimp, and an auto disk measure, and your making good rounds.

The press also gives you that multiple caliber capability with sanity! Switching turrets in and out is a snap. You can either go semi-progressive or single stage by adding/removing the indexing rod.

I wish I would have started with this press from the beginning. (good for the 1000-1500 round a month guy)

I may poke fun at you for having such a neat loading bench, but I am also deadly serious about not mixing up components. I only ever have one container of powder on the bench at a time. It would not be fun to accidentally load 8.5gr of 231 into a 45 case thinking it was AA#5. These are obvious safety precautions, but it never hurts to be reminded.
