Just thought we would see what everyones loading room setup looks like. I'll go first..

This is my new bench in a newly remodled section of our basement. It has alot better lighting than my old room and has heating and AC vents for year around loading. I haven't got the room complete yet but i can load as it is now. Positive or even negative comments are welcome on my set-up.---Matt

Thank you for the compliment. I said it was a loading room. I just didn't say who or what was getting loaded...LOL

just a easy way to weigh shot huh?

I'll get pics of my new bench as soon as I can get enough cr& off it so you can see the loader.

Here is how i solved the loaded shells coming off the chute in back. They go thru the bench and straight into a bucket underneath the bench.

Shooting Coach---Yeah you have definately got a thing for loaders. You can never have too many toys though. Those are man toys. I like it.--Matt

Hell, borrow away. I stole the damn idea from the Spolar set-up at the Grand. My set-up is not near as fancy as theirs though. I believe their shells went into a padded drawer. She told me they sell the bench and all like they had but i'm a poor boy and like to build crap anyway.---Matt

Converted my former office into my loading room. AC/Heat/carpeted with good lighting. One of the 9000 dumps the finished shells down a tube like grntitan's but they dump into a plastic tray on the floor. Good for about 400 shells. The yellow bucket catches all the old primers, (must have close to 50K in there now). Red plastic trays under each loader catchs any spills. Tray has small hole where I sweep spills into, spill fall into glass jar under counter. I can empty it and sort shot/powder as needed. Very comfortable setup for me.

jbmi--I like your spill control idea. I may have to incorporate something just like that on my bench. Very nice set-up.---Matt

Here's mine. I haven't gotten the shotshell loaders permanently located yet, they will have their own bench with holes for loaded shells to fall thru. I loved the PVC duct work guys, well thought out! Hope you don't mind if I copy cuz I'm gonna.

I just started loading Shotshells last Xmas so I'm still new.

Been doing the cartridge loading for 32 years now.

I find it important to have a calendar within easy view when I'm reloading, sometimes I lose track of time and need to know what day it is.

The hull hopper is hiding it, but there's a PVC chute thru the bench into a 5-gallon bucket below for completed shells. The Rubbermaid tubs are full of hulls.

Like yours my spills go through a hole in the bench top except mine are sorted when they stop falling. Under my bench top I built and hung a pocket for lack of a proper name. In the pocket I built and slid in three wood boxes (8"x8"x1-1/2"). These boxes stack one on top of the other. The top box has a 1/4" hail screen bottom, it stops anything from a primer on up in size. The second box has a steel or aluminum window screen bottom,it will stop all sizes of shot. The bottom box has a solid bottom, powder ends up here. When I change recipes or when I am done loading I empty the boxes. Pushed out primers go through the bench in a pvc pipe to a box. Loaded shells go through in a pvc pipe to a bucket. Almost all are something I heard about or saw right here on ts.com. Thanks guys. Paul in Nebraska.

This is what mine looked like before I got married and moved to Kansas. Here, Martin has half the basement filled with reloading presses, hulls, lead, powder, trophies, and God knows what else. If he has a calendar down there, I would never be able to find it. LOL!!!

Yes, it's a cell phone pic. But I'm not selling anything, so perhaps I'll get a pass.
