    You are quite welcome. Check out both ranges web pages for a calendars of events. Old Fort is very much laid back for their events with Red Castle matches being a bit more involved. Red Castle has pit service so not shooting blind as you are at Old Fort. I enjoy both very much. You do not have to be a member to shoot matches at either.

    And here we are with the finished product. I also bought a rolling work bench from Harbor Freight for more storage and work space. After using it for a bit I am quite pleased with the end result.



    Hope someone finds these posts entertaining and/or helpful!
    Very nice bench Terry. So can you share exactly what "wipe on poly" you used for the finish? I really like the look on that yellow pine.

    Thanks, Mike

    Really nice build, Terry!

    I hear you on the serious shooter front. I used to compete in local sporting clays shoots. Back in the day, I might post 190 out of 200. Would sometimes get me in the top 10

    That much work, and you don't have a Dillon on it?

    No Dillon. I'm seating with a K&M arbor press so really nothing for the main press to do but decap, resize and expand. For what I'm doing the Rock Chucker is plenty good.

    That's a nice looking bench. I like the idea with the HF storage trays; I may have to steal the idea when I rebuild my reloading setup when we get the house finished. Right now I'm using a lot of different sized trays with all kinds of odds and ends in them. I also used the T-nut idea on my last bench; it works well. I put two rows of T-nuts along the front of the bench and made several bases all the same size then mounted the various presses on them, including, yes, a Dillon....two, actually.

    Thanks Dave. 2 Dillons. Nice!
