I have a room in the basement set up for reloading and photography. I do most of my reloading during the long winter months in western NY. I do very little metallic reloading as I do very little rifle or pistol shooting any more. I do load 10ga, 12ga, and 20ga. I do load all my non-tox waterfowl loads.

Dennis, sorry to hear about your fire, but, in retrospect, I need a fire in my loading room. I had more loading equipment and components than anyone who has posted here when I was twelve years old. I was forced into it by the powers that be at my gun club.

My room is a mess. One bench has a 12ga Grabber for Federal paper shells and a 600 for 10ga on it. The other bench has a 9000H and a 600, both for the 12. Next to it is a table model drill press for roll crimping. I also do ceder arrow and long bow string making. Then there's my equipment for leather work. In the next room there's two 650s - one for 20 and one for 28. It's in my basement which makes it nice in the winter time.

I have one side of the laundry room. It works good for me, but it's a bit of a mess right now, I use it for assembling things I make on the lathe (such as pens) as well. Left to right: Mec 600 for 12ga, Dillon RL550B for 45ACP, RCBS Partner press for 500 Nitro Express, and an old Lyman Spar-T turret press I do everything else on. I load for 17 different calibers.

Spolar hydraulic with 12/20/28 gauge die sets. Quite a learning curve when you've been using MEC's for a long time!

I load a lot of 12 Ga on my PW 800 Plus, but never had the courage to step up to a hydraulic.

Reminds me of a posting on a woodworking site I frequent. The question was asked "Most of us have hand tools and power tools which perform the same function. When do you use the power tool?" The best reply was "When I want to screw it up quickly, rather than slowly"

Chuck that is a high tech looking press. Can they be set up for 2 1/2 cases and how difficult is it to change dies from one gauge to another?

Ok, you guys are embarrassing me now! I love it when someone says, "my bench is a mess".... right. This is a "mess", but it works! There's at least 500# of shot under the table. The buckets at the corner are full of 12ga AA target loads; the yellow bucket 20ga AA target loads. The table is a drafting table I made for a project in 1990. I brought it home, cut it down to 6ft long and put big casters on it so I can move it around, not that that ever happens with all that shot under there.

Not a mess but orderly chaos. The difference is i bet you know where every thing is and can put your hand on it when you need it. I have been a 70 year practitioner of this art. Took 3 years off, the military did not under stand.
