    Well, this is the old set up from NY. The CO setup is going to be much more spacious and easy to work with. Eventually I plan on walling off the corner of the garage I set up in so I can isolate it completely from my workshop for safety and better security.

    Well your going to need to post pics when you get that new set up done.

    I need to get some pics up myself after I get my gun room in order and set up with the reloading stations.

    I'm going to need some more bins to account for the .270, 5.56, and 10mm brass. Then add some shelving for the additional powders. Have to hit up the lgs and grab some 4895 and benchmark tomorrow.

    And I have a delivery of 9mm and 5.56 brass arriving tomorrow.

    Those are the exact two which I chose to start with on .223 Rem. The Benchmark burned cleaner than either the H4895 or the factory loaded (Fed) that I shot. The Fed was very smoky and stinky. The H4895 was exactly between the two for smokiness. I forget which brand of factory ammo I zeroed with but it wasn't Fed. The H4895 kept nearly the same POI as what I zeroed it with (just a small tad high) but the Benchmark shot higher than the H4895.

    Benchmark:

    I'm gonna stick with the H4895 in .223 for now. :)

    The IMR 4895 pulls triple duty on my bench. It handles .270, .308, and .223.

    Benchmark pulls double duty with .223 and .308.

    Clay's pulls double duty as well. It handles 9mm, .40 S&W.

    Clay's will even run 12 ga loads with a few different types of 2 3/4" shells, if I get in to shot shell reloading.

    That was a replacement fan for my attic vent in the old house.

    <whew!> That's a relief. I was afraid you turned it on when you work a kilt while reloading.

    :rofl:

    Very nice! I still haven't thought through how I'm going to set up mine when the shop is done. I have a corner designated, that's it.

    100 yards, KLAWSON?

    OK, just making sure it's not for anything
    related to reloading. I have 3 or 4 of them... ;)
