    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
    Oh yeh? Well this was sent from the scary black electrical box under my desk, so there!

    .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.

    Reloading

    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.
    I will send you a check for the postage by Friday.
    Thanks again.

    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.
