    ImaShepardRU - Nice looking setup. I long to have a man cave that can stay uncluttered and organized. I have to stack stuff upon stuff for storage.

    Good idea for the primer catcher. Mine drops down the ram so I can either remove the trap door, and place a large can underneath or periodically open the door and scoop them out.

    alfack - Now I get it. If I were doing match loads I could see the need for a rigid mount. A few thou on a target round is acceptable (I hope).

    retsupt99 - Everything the body needs with a LoadMaster with the frills (case colator, bullet feeder - don't need it, extra turret, universal deprimer x2, factory crimp die, tumbler, scale, media separator) comes in at $800ish including bullets (TMJ or FMJ - cast lead is significantly cheaper), powder, primers to do 2 calibers, 1k rounds each. Get your range brass local along with powder and primers to avoid haz mat shipping fee.

    If you want, I can compile a shopping list w/cost - online shopping. PM me.

    There after figure $150 (again, TMJ or FMJ bullets) per 1k rounds if you keep track of your brass.

    Sticks - I had one thought when I saw the setup. I would always have on knee pads and shin guards!

    Very impressive.

    Thank you. It is finally going to get field tested tomorrow. Finally got some nice weather and I have nothing better to do while on layoff, so I am packing it up and heading out to the private range.

    Pretty slick Sticks, nice set up. One thing I can see that I would bet your going to change right off is the lack of some kind of edging on the top. I'm thinking as you operate the press in short order stuff will be falling off the edges. Thought the welds looked pretty good, only thing I ever was able to do with a stick welder was burn nice holes in things

    I thought about edging, but the only thing that sits up there when I am running it is the box of bullets, , scale, calipers, and the round catcher tray. Anything else that I need is on the workbench.

    Nice set up. I suggest using a cloth or covering below the loader to keep anything from dropping in an inaccessibly place, or to keep you from digging through the buckets/storage you have.( voice of experience here )

    Well, so far so good. I did place a piece of plywood in front of the bench to keep things from going into never-never land underneath (I got 8 legged critters building nests under there, don't care to find out what kind. They do their job eating bugs, I'll do mine and leave them alone).

    Weather is starting to look dicey wind wise for tomorrow. I will post pics if it mounted to my truck if I do go.

    That was a cool idea! Looks good to me all the way around.

    I learned how to stick weld from my wife's grampa, who was a ship builder down at Ingalls shipyard during the war. First time I tried it was in a pair of flip flops, and he just chuckled as the bits-o-molten lava fell on my feet and said it'd toughen me up (and would make me wear shoes next time-it did). My stuff was never pretty either, but if it works, that's why you do it. Great work.

    Spaced this out to frustration.

    My hitch lock, having been on for 7 years in Colorado's wonderful chemical ice issue...well after fighting with it for near an hour with everything I had in my tool box, and finally breaking the key off in it, refused to come out. Time for the blue wrench.

    Anyhow, my loads for both my .44 and .40 were good. Solved my primer issue (not seated deep enough) and enough powder to cycle the Desert Eagle slide. I need to up the load just a bit due to get a better burn in the .44 but otherwise good.

    Looks great and a great idea for range use.
