PostSubject: RUNNING OUT OF ROOM   February 4th 2015, 5:59 pm

Tried to get my table cleaned organized today & I'm just flat out of room! I have to get a counter & some cabinets to mount it on so that I can get mt RCBS press & Chargemaster that I got from Carlos, some dedicated areas.  I really want to get the press set up for some resizing! That's a 8ft table in the pic & I've got a 12ft space so once I get it done I should have plenty of room (in theory)

In any case the MR sure does look pretty! Tore it down & gave it a coat of Fitz gun wax. Really like that stuff. If the snow ever quits / melts I'll take it back to the range & dirty it up a bit Smile  Gonna be 2 below in the morning Sad

It is real pretty and it does look real familiar, specially to me. You just going to have to get a bigger table.

My area is not that clean and tidy,  your wife has trained you well.
Talking about the MR looks good. Mine doesn't shine like your.

Carlos.....It should look very famuiliar to you too Smile I need the bigger table for sure & I need a solid base for that Rock Crusher! I just know that a bigger table means more room for more bullets, LOL!!

Dave......Jennifer has trained me well & because I listened I get to shoot as much as I want Smile

I'm really hoping to find some inexpensive cabinets to mount the counter top to with the hopes that everything can be organized & put away & then hopefully the only things sitting out will be the vise, press, & powder dispenser 😀

Greg, I see the Nosler BT muzz bullet in that picture.  Have you shot any of them yet?

I have the same problem with the clutter.  I think it just creeps up on you.  The more things you experiment with or the different guns you work with all require more "good stuff". Very Happy

Glad to see I'm not the only one.

I was told once that in Native American, "Rich" must mean "lotta stuff guy", now I know that's really what "Greg" means.

I've got a U-shaped area that covers 3 walls, all with built-in benches and 2 shelves. It was empty 3 years ago; now I'm out of room. One short area is for casting, another for cartridge reloading, another for shotgun reloading, and the rest is a work area and storage.

This stuff is addicting. bounce

 I have only tried them in my Knight Mountaineer & they loaded sooooo TIGHT that I shot one & that was it. At the time that gun was my only 50 cal. I'll probably try them in the MR once the weather warms & the snow melts a bit,

lol! lol!  That's a good one. With all the "stuff" I've accumulated over the years I must be loaded!  In all honesty, we've gotten to the point if turnung down stuff whenever a friend says "You can have it if you want" There's too much crap, er, uh, I mean "stuff" in my house anyway!!

Joe.......you are soooooo right! It just keeps showing up Smile

Bob, I have enough room to do a large "L" shape & I may go that route before it's all said & done, but I know that more space = more stuff!

I had the same problem in my Knight Ultra Lite with .458 dia. Knight Bloodlines.  I did shoot some of them but the accuracy was terrible.  You could see the petals on the sabot stretching as you tried to load them.

Greg, putting up 2 shelves above the bench will allow you to store all the bullets, etc. above the table and give you lots more room. I put up a 1x12 about head high and another 1x10 above that. Reinforce with galvanized brackets and they will hold a lot of weight. A short stool is necessary to access the top shelf so stuff that is used less goes up there.
