Love the off season... not really tho!

Its awesome to get on the bench and work up my loads before turkey season and boating season hits. Nothing better then being in the gun room making ammo and building guns! These are 30/06 200 gr Speer Hot cor, over IMR 4064.

Nice! I'm a "heavy for caliber" bullet guy myself. Great round. Great powder. Only thing you did "wrong" was that they're not 220 grainers!

They are primarily for bear, but I will pop a deer with it.

got a question for all of you. id like to put a plywood top on an old teachers desk that i do my reloading on. its a metal desk with kind of lenulium type top that is cracked and coming off. i had to add a 1 inch thick oak board to extend out away from the desk to mount the press. id like to remove the board and extend the plywood out far enough to mount the press on but not sure how thick of a sheet of plywood i should get. it will have to be able to withstand the pressure of resizing cases. i was thinking of 5/8 or 3/4 inch. what is your opinion. thanks.

I 'm no reloader ,but I would go with the 3/4 inch plywood to make sure you have enough stability and not to have to redo it later on

I have these old cabinets laying around , so when I assembled them to make my reloading bench, I used 3/4 inch plywood to hang my press on. There was to much flex in it, so I grabbed a 2x6, cut it to match the hang off, and screwed it in place. Solid as a rock, and no flex. My gun room is ugly, but its my hideaway from life! LOL...
