    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 how 1/4 of the workroom looks...I have crossbows and a compound bow hanging from the ceiling.

    I have some donations to work on to clear out some potential space, still. It’s a work in progress. There’s 3 store rooms downstairs that need decluttering.

    I am wanting to reload rifle rounds, but I’m thinking of a separate station on the desk

    I don’t like to clutter primers and powder together. It doesn’t make for a safe situation.

    I have a few things to donate in the basement storeroom C to make space.

    Updated to add an RCBS turret press for rifle ammunition.


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

    Thank you.

    It has been like a part time job.

    I collect about 300-500 rounds from the range every time I go so I have a near endless supply of brass.

    It’s fun to just crank out 100-150 rounds of different calibers.

    I can’t wait to start the turret press. I have everything I need equipmentwise. I need components for different calibers, now. I’ll start with 300 AAC because I am getting a titanium Suppressor for centerfire Rifle this month, along with 3 other cans.

    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).

    Now I can see what is running low, which is just 44 Magnum bullets. Everything else is more than enough for my volume of shooting.


    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.
