Reorganized my reloading factory

I have been reloading for a few years now, starting out with just 45 ACP, then 357 Magnum. My friend introduced me to 44 Magnum, gave me his Dillon 450 with the S&W 629 PC that he sold me. I became hooked on recoil.

I started reloading 454 Casull, 460 S&W and 500 S&W on a single stage. To facilitate a faster process, I have separate powder drops for 500 Magnum x 2 (500 grain bullets, 350 grain bullets), 454 Casull and 460.



One day I was talking to a new friend saying I wanted one of those automated reloading machines that I saw for around $3k. She said she wanted to sell her Dillon 550, so after a good deal, I decided to jump on it.

However, I was “out of space”. My desk had 3 presses already but the other side of the desk was unused and had wasted space. So I turned it in my basement workshop so I can have more working room....



So here is house 1/4 of the workroom looks...



The advantage is that each station has a load I can specifically work on in a few minutes.

The disadvantage is that I see space for two more progressive presses.

UPDATE:





Updated to add an RCBS turret press for rifle ammunition.

I’ve been reloading 9 mm so it has been cluttered on the desk.

Ok, so I organized everything, finally.

I put all Brass, primers, and bullets next to each press. The primer tubes in the center with the primer tray. The manual is on the edge of the bench. I have others to put there, too (Hornady, Speer, and Lyman).

The tumblers are on the ground since one time it tumbled off of the bench. I decided it was best to put them in a corner.

How many rounds a week do you go thru? Looks like you can make a pile of them real quick. Great set up.

1500 probably.

I went 4-5 times a week since spring. Then again, I have a range in my backyard.

This was before I added more targets.
