Since I haven't had time to build a work bench in our new house yet, I've put my shooting table to use as a reloading bench. Everything won't fit on it at once, but it works just fine. Plus, it's portable! :) I can strip it down and pack the table in my trunk in about 5 minutes, and re-assembly is the same. Posted ImagePosted Image

I've done the same thing with mine in the field. They work pretty well and are plenty sturdy. Hey your brass looks a lot better, did you get your tumbler and media working better? :)

Yup. The walnut media really does them well, and the corn finishes them off. I put in some cloth strips to help collect the dust from the treated Lyman media, it seems a bit exessive to me.

too clean and organised :) great idea.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

I knew the corn cob would do the trick for you as the final polish. :o I've never tried the cloth strips. ;) The polish I use in my walnut is a liquid that you just use a cap full each or every other batch. :)

Too much dust, put a teaspoon of kerosene in with the tumbling media. 'bout twice a year works for me.A17Shooter
