Mike, mine is just plain sloppy!!! It works pretty well except when it's time to measure the powder THEN it gets a little hairy.   

 
Mines also gots WHEELS!!! I'm mo-bile........Camper
 
I had a great old steel work bench at our last house, but I gave it to some friends.
 
Great thread, Coby!!

how in the world do you expect to load accurately without a digital scale mark??
my bench is an 8ftx8ft 1/2" thick steel table in our shop, works great lots of room sturdy hard to move though

Mine is in the detached garage across a breezeway from the main house.  We have an understanding that entry is by permission only and no comments on tidiness (that word looks wrong, doesn't it?).  One end is a bench made out of solid core doors and the other is my desk with TV and computer

Can't complain.

I thought Jeff had mistakenly said that once he "gets a gun, it's what I'll use", but nope.  He's got the reloading bench, and the next thing on the list is a gun.  I just thought that was funny.Big%20Smile   Sounds like it's gonna be a nice gun, too.

Here's a deal I've been using for many years to clean case necks for my .308.
 
I take 0000 steel wool and wrap some strands of it around an old .308 barrel brush. Then just twist the gizmo around a few times and viola, your case necks are shiny clean.
 
 
The threads on the barrel brush will screw right in a RCBS primer pocket cleaner handle.

1/2 tsp measure scoop? you better hope she never finds it.  I just throw a load of powder into a casing and use it to trickle.  But I do like the neck cleaner I'll have to try that.
