Wow thats nicer than what I have set up, very well done! I went for the rudementry look, purely functional. You have really upped the bar though. I might have to call Martha Stewart and get some pointers so I can one up ya here, lol. mines just a work bench in the shed with 4 presses and some plywood shelves. But seriously thats sweet!!! Looks like I am not the only one stacked so deep too.
Awesome set up. Well worth the time you put into it. I just started reloading so I have a long ways to go. Hopefully someday I'll have a set up as nice as this. Just awesome.
Very nice. I thought I was doing good. All my stuff fits in dresser drawer and a small one at that.
I wished I had that kind of space to reload but limited to a small area at this time. I also obviously don't load as many different calibers as you do so would never need as many different supplies either. My loading is all 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt (pistol and rifle), 45-70 Government, 20 ga and 12 ga shot shells. The press in use now is the Lee Classic Turret and Lee Pro 1000 was sold to buy it. It does do the job however very well.

Nice set up. My reloading preps right now consist of a few protein bottles of brass, and a pair of reloading manuals. Yeah, I'm behind on the power curve. Talking to a friend right now, trying to buy his press, dies, tumbler, etc to help finance the RFB he wants to buy.
Crap, great idea. I've thrown out a lot of protein containers. What a great way to store and keep all my expended brass. Amazing how something so obvious is overlooked. I learn something new on here everyday.

I just sold my Rusty Lee 1000 for $70, and bought a used Lee Reloader for $10 to use for decapping and setting rivets & snaps in leather
I have a Lee 3 hole turret with 30/06 dies,bullets Hornady Scale, Pacific trimmer, 3 turrets that ended up costimg me $30 out of pocket after selling off the rest of the package.
Then came the Midway order and Gun Shop visits.
I started by buying a friends complete set up including not only 2 - Lee Pro 1000 but a Lee Reloader for presses. It also came with sizing tools, a couple of bullet pullers, a pair of scales one digital the other beam type, tumbler with media, brass and bullets as well as some powders, a few thousand primers in large and small pistol. I made a few thousand rounds with the equipment and decided the Progressive presses wasn't for me so I sold them getting what I have now. Now I consider what I have perfect for my needs with the limited calibers I load and very able to keep me shooting a 1000 rounds a month on average.
