No doubt. 8 footers put out even more light, seem to last longer and are way easier to change.

chances are, I'll be putting track lighting up there.

bit more expensive, but where my desk is located at work its all 8 ft's
and I can't stand florescent lights.

drives my eyes nuts.

The reloading area will be away from the other stuff. gun powder and sparks from the bench grinder don't make a good combination.

I can't count or keep track of all of the calibers I have done over the past 25 years. Easier with the shotgun, only do 12 ga. :D Fred

Foss I know what you mean. Eric and I have to reload for most of our shooting as the calibers we like to shoot most often are wildcats. 219 Donaldson Wasp, custom 7mm Magnum ( made in the 50s) and even a 25 souper. Yes Souper. None of these cartridges were ever commercially available so if we want to shoot em we gotta load em first.

I HAVE BEEN RELOADING SINCE I HAVE BEEN OLD ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I WAS DOING MY DAD WAS A TRAP SHOOTER . THE REASON A GUN WOULD BLOW UP WOULD BE THE GUN WAS AN AUTO THEY CAN NOT TAKE THE
PRESSURE THAT THE OVER UNDER'S OR PUMPS CAN TAKE THE SAME AS RIFLE
SHELLS YOU RELOAD TO THE GUN NOT TO WHAT THE BOOK SAYS THE BOOK IS
ONLY A STARTING POINT GO LOW AND MOVE UP FROM THERE .
I ' VE SAVED A LOT ON SHOT SHELLS & RIFLE SHELLS ITS NICE TO HAVE
AMMO AROUND WHEN YOU NEED IT NOT GOING TO THE HIGH BUCK STORE
FOR WHAT EVER SHELLS I ENJOY IT :yes:

Geesh how did I miss this thread. I have been reloading ever since I bought my first rifle, which was a Remington model 788 in .308 Cal. I did at one time have two presses one for rifle and one for shotgun. I loaded a lot of shotshel in my day too. At one time I did some trap and skeet shooting and I found that reloading saved me a lot of money. Most common problems with shotshell reloading is most people do not set the crimping stage to correct depth. This is the stage where the shotshell is pressed down onto the BB's or Shot. You can safely reload a shotshell about 3 to 5 times before you have to worry much about them. Its just like everything else you must inspect the casing before you reload. If it don't look right don' reload it. I have more dies for rifles then I do the calibers. I have done some reloading for friends but they have to be a good friend, (if one knows what I mean). In all the years of reloading I personally have had only one shell no fire, and it was my fault. Good thing it happened to me on the firing range. Chambered a 7mm mag round squeezed the trigger and nothing, re-chambered it and nothing again. Took it out of the gun gave the shell a little shake and could not hear the powder. When I got home I pulled the bullet to find NO POWDER. Now that would have been nice if I would have been hunting and had a trophy walk out and nothing. But for me I love to reload just to see how accurate I can make the gun, it is relaxing and you get a good feeling when you get a gun to shoot its best.

Hey thanks I have read some of it where it talked about a caliber I have or reload for. Good stuff.

You're quite welcome bud. Glad to see it get some use. It's too good a book to go to waste.
