Chris, your setup looks great. I use a room off my shop/garage, 2 Lyman 5 station turret press', 1 single stage, and 1 Lee hand press for decapping. Find this is about the most relaxation I get. I do have heat but A/C is on my wish list.Warm weather here is 100-114* so I use an old refridgerator set at 60* to store my powder and primers

.45 cast bullets for the most part. Most others we have the ability reload. I currently only own a single stager but have been looking at Dillon for high capacity. Reloading 500 rounds on a single stage starts to lose it's fun.
For those who say you don't save money reloading because you just shoot more... I say phooey. Even if this was the case - wouldn't you love to shoot more for the same price?
WWB .45: 18 cents per round @ wally world
Cast .45: 3 cents per round (Free lead and re-using scrounged brass)
So you'd have to shoot 6 times as much after reloading to see cost equivalence.
Plus you look cool with all of those scars from molten lead splattering on your arms.

I started reloading about two months ago. I have a Dillon SDB with dies for 9mm, 38 spl., 357 mag, .380.
I am really enjoying it. I have become addicted.

I just got back home after a week on the road and the brass you sent is here. Again, I appreciate it.

The Dillion 550B works well for me. Rapid loading of ammo for mass shooting sure makes it nice. I don't use the powder hopper for rifle reloading , because I want more accuracy /better powder consistancy. With some of the smaller powders this may not be a big of an issue, will have to see. Nothing like the satisfaction of using handloads for hunting.
