    Default My Portable Reloading Set Up

    I made a portable reloading bench, which is a concrete block 16x8x4 with my Lee Press bolted to it. I can reload in my office, outside storage area or take on the road with me. I used in motel rooms when I was traveling this winter. The block is heavy enough to go through all the functions of reloading.
    The block does not take up any room and can be moved out of the way when not in use.

    Nothing wrong with that. It's portable and functional!

    I like. What do you have on the bottom of the brick to protect surfaces from scratching?

    I used a piece of felt like material cut to size, a towel or anything will work.
    I bolted a 1" pine plank to the block with a overlap and notched out for the arm and shaft would clear the block.

    I picked up a LEE Hand Press and a LEE hand primer. The LEE Hand Press uses the same dies as my Rockchucker and Dillons, so there's no need to buy special dies like the old Lyman 311 tong tool requires. For powder measurement, I mounted one of my RCBS Uni-flow's (most reliable measure's I've ever found) onto a 18" long piece of 2x6. I clamp the 2x6 onto a table or shelf with a C-clamp and use the hand press in my lap. Priming can be done anywhere. You just sit between 2 boxes, one full of unprimed brass, one that you put the primed brass into. I primed 2000 rounds of .45 ACP in about 8 hours once like that.

    I have a lot of Lee products. For simplicity and easy to use you can't beat their Lee Classic Reloaders. Grab some Powder, primers and bullets, throw them into a back pack and head out. All you need is a hammer and some time!
