Yep BigBlue, I sure do like that Rockchucker, they are some strong.

Thanks Vince and Hunterjoe, the nice thing about my room is that I can roll from the computer to my reloading setup and stay in my office chair. Works for me.

Hunterjoe, I made the stand for my powder measure from a couple pieces of conduit. You can't tell by the pics but when the powder measure is clamped to the bench the locking door will still open all the way without touching on the top of the powder measure.

GREAT idea for a powder measure stand. Wish

I can't tell from 1895's picture how it is made. Can someone provide a description or post a close-up? I need to make one. Thanks!

Here's a close up, I hope it helps. The flat piece of metal that the powder measure is fastened to is the mount that came with the measure when I bought it new 25 - 30 years ago. The rest like I said is just some half inch conduit that I shaped and bent to fit my need.

Thanks for posting the picture 1895. I'm going to start work on a stand this weekend with a friend.

English Mike, where do they let you shoot them over there? Do you have to use a suppressor?

They don't - the %^&*( outlawed handguns back in '97 so I head over to your side of the Pond a few times a year to shoot them & semi-auto rifles (mostly the FAL).
The photo was taken in Albuquerque.
Suppressors are easy to obtain here in the UK - noise regulations can be your friend....... Very Happy

Hahahaha chambered is right Bushy and after all these years (25-30) with it not being painted I think I'll just leave it that way. Very Happy

I've been reluctant to post a picture of my reloading operation as it fits the title of this topic, unlike the great photos of other members reloading benches. Its far from tidy and I don't have a stereo system but can appreciate how it would make for a relaxing reloading session.

I did get the plastic bins from Walmart (thanks for the suggestion BigBlue) and it did help tidy up some. Below is my workbench which doubles as a reloading bench. Space is shared with a spare cylinder head for my Volvo 240 wagon and tire from my MGA. I use Lee Classic Reloaders and my drill press for my reloading operation - low budget but still accurate! The only real tidy aspect of the set-up is all my cleaning rods for rifles and pistols are suspended on hooks underneath the outdated cabinets I reused from a kitchen remodel.

The workbench is a keeper. I built it in 1980 and has moved 4 times.

Just wanted to show others what a messy reloading bench can look like.



Oh, I did get my 1868 Remington Rolling Block action refurbished, tight, and ready to go back out to the range.

What? You restoring a MGA? Did my apprenticship in a European car shop. Rebuilt a bunch of MG engines, transmissions and third members (TC, TD, TF and A. Restored a MGA (1956) Roadster and a MG Miget (1976). Both were mine...

I bought this '60 MGA in 1978 from 2 sisters in Fresno CA. It had been driven every day of its life until 1983 when I pulled the engine out to start the restoration. The body is off as a couple of years ago. Its been in "restoration" longer than it has been driven. I seem happiest when I have about a dozen different projects in play. Some take years to complete. My 1868 Rolling Block will finally get done this year and its restoration has taken 43 years. So, I can afford to wait a few more years to complete the MGA. Besides, I don't want it to take away from my shooting time at the moment.

I drove a 1971 wire wheeled Midget for a couple of years - fun but an utter rust bucket in the UK climate.

Don't fergit the work on ya Ovlov Slim. Had two 240 series Volvos...great cars. I now own a '94 960 sedan...after writing off my '92 940 sedan.

While ya got the head off mate...upgrade the cams, maybe swap over to a 16 valve head (from memory the B23E engine will take it) and maybe throw on a little "snail" pumpin' about 12 -14 psi...talkin' good horsepower there mate. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Love the MGs mate...saw a MGB GT yesterday in almost concourse condition...not a common sight these days. It sounded awesome with the exhaust note reverberating in between the city buildings.

Anywayz, back on topic...if its any consolation Slim...my bench is no better...come to think of it...neither is the garage. I have a double garage and can't get a car into it, although I do have my trailer and two Bultaco motorcycles in there.

Cheers, Vince
