Show us your reloading/gunsmithing bench

Nice! How does that auto ejector work? I was thinking of buying the kit for my turret press

 

Works Great! I have only used it for that small batch of .308 in the photo. But those are obviously larger round and it had no problem so I cant imagine there being any issue for anything smaller, rifle or pistol.

Recently moved. My bench is a work in progress. I have another bench that will replace those small tables under the cabnets off to the right. I have the bench, just need to get it from the garage to the basement. Lol

Nice!

 

I noticed mostly everyone is reloading in the basement. Is there an underlying reason for it? Conditioned space equally less temperature swings or something?

Mine is because my wife refuses to go down there, so I can actually add to the bench and work space w/o her... how do I put this in PC terms... "bitching" lol :D

Below grade and garages are "man space". Like bathrooms and living rooms are woman space.

Cool. So it shouldn't be a big deal to reload in the garage. The house I may be buying doesn't have a basement. Just a big garage. It's attached to the house but it's not conditioned. I'm going to add a heater for the winter and maybe an exhaust fan for the summer but can't do anything about humidity...

The garage has a brewery and a ton of tools (table saw, drill press, roller cabinets, snow blower, etc), there's a reef tank in the rec room and another in the second floor hall, my watchmaking bench is in the living room and my espresso station (commercial machine and grinder plus all the accessories) is in the dining room. I have more hobbies than space, the basement had a few square feet of available space. My bench height was dictated by the height of the spare set of tires for my track car, barely visible on the left side of my picture, under the bench.

Wish I had a basement to reload, but i'll be transforming my den into a reloading room soon.

    • This has been my experience at OB as well, using both a red dot (Holosun) and Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6.
    • 20 or 24" depending on what is easier to get for which model gun. There was hot demand for 20" barrels but it has mostly died out. First because they mostly ship with 24" ones in the popular brands and second is that in most locations, the "right"  setup is with a 12 round tube. At that point the tube is longer than a 24" barrel, so why spend money trying to get a 20" barrel for something shipping with a 24.  If you can get one with factory fixed sights at that length, that's really the sweet spot.  The shotgun in 3 gun is stupid and entirely impractical. it's an ungainly mess that you would never try to manipulate in an interior space outside of a warehouse or a big box store. IMO it should be 18" barrels with 8 round tubes as the norm as that is a very handy package when set up right. But that's not the way things have shaken out. It's the gamiest part of the game.  That being said, 18" barrels that accept chokes can be at a disadvantage at some matches. 18" cylinder bore barrels with no choke are near useless for 3 gun. I tried 18" with a choke because NJ (and 18" with a 6 round tube is not a bad setup in terms of looks or ergonomics), but outside of it being a mossberg 930  and having the associated reliability issues and problematic manual of arms, it just was sub optimal with choke selection. Where others shooitng 20-24 could put on a cylinder choke and shoot whole arrays while picking up freebies from the spread, I'd start getting donut holes in my patterns with some ammo.  Shotgun isn't about what is practical or most right, it's about what is the least wrong choice for a competitive advantage. Given that, it's a place where the wisdom of the crowd is a bit more correct than typical.   
    • Work around - don't get the real id. Do it online. Then pick a different less busy line in the form of getting a passport card. It is accepted for flights. Heck a passport might be as well if you already have one. 
    • Thanks - I was fairly sure that was the case. If anyone else is interested: I found the guidance form the NSSF here ( http://www2.nssf.org/l/127421/2020-04-28/42prlx ) that says as much and even references/links the ATF guidance for these situations.
    • You are going to be fine. oakridge is saying exactly what you were told by your local PD. While your physical DL shows it expired, the computer systems will show it was extended due to the wuhu flu and, therefore, valid.
