I just throw mine in a drawer and if I'm looking for a particular size it seems the one I
need is the last one I pick up.
Help me simplify and organize.
Thanks for any ideas.

Thread organizer...about $10-15 most places. Larger and smaller ones too...or a board with some nails.

Use something like this and mark the bushing on the lid, back of slot, bottom etc...Most Walmart's have them for less than $5.00

I'm going to Sportsmans Warehouse this morning and there is a Hobby Lobby next door.
I like the thread organizer idea and would like to see one.
Hobby Lobby might have them.

Walmart has those thread spool holders for $9. I wish I would have known they were that cheap before I went and made mine.

Simple and easy to make. Obviously I didn't spend any time refining mine or making it pretty.

I did it much like Speedy but across the front edge of a shelf.



RCBS also sells a rack for their shell holder that I'l bet would work for bushings, too.

I would recommend putting them in a paper bag several steps from your reloader so that they cannot confuse your loader. Be careful, some may be upside down or sideways. I would recommend color coding all fifty or sixty, committing the color and bushing numbers to memory. Unfortunately, I was unable to do this, therefore, I got a bushing board by MEC. Taupe, mauve, pastel, and others woman colors can be confusing, however.

After I discovered my top secret super dooper magic load using Federal shells, wads and Titewad powder in my Grand, I tack welded everything down and tossed the other bushings in the organizer with all my MEC bushings. Both my MECs have Universal Charge Bars.

In one of the shallow drawers of a metal tool chest that has been repurposed for reloading. I engrave the size/number in the top for easier identification.

I really liked the pegs on the powder shelf.

A board (scrap of 1X4) with a bunch of 7\8" holes drilled about 1\2" deep, and 6 or 7 one inch holes for the shot bushings. Not fancy but works for me, price was\is right FREE. Ross Puls

Rick,
I reviewed your scores, you may want to find a new top secret favorite load. LOL :)

fusing, however.
Charlie,
Your paper bag notion is comparable to mine rattling in a drawer.
Great minds, I guess.
See you at Blue Grass.

A bass lure tackle box with lids on both sides. That box is packed with P/W bushings. I use an old small tool box for the Mec bushings.

grntitan,

I think you are right. I have felt for a long time I should shoot my reloads for registered shooting instead of new factory shells.
