Portable reloading ... pictures please

What do you take to the range when you want to work up a load? I want to make a portable reloading station I can take to the range. I have an extra Redding Ultramag press and am looking for options as to how to use it. Thanks in advance.

I slide this into the trailer hitch of the truck, bolt on the press and I'm good to go.




Then I set this on the tailgate and get to reloading.




I do however prep my brass at home, this set up is strictly for measuring powder and seating bullets, but it does work.

Chris, that's pretty slick. Do you have a photo of how use secure the press to the fixture you attach to the truck?

Unfortunately I don't have a pic of everything set up, but its pretty straight forward.

The two bolts you see in the pic are threaded into the top plate, I just take them out and set the Rockchucker in place and tighten the bolts back down. Once the pin is in the hitch and the chains are hooked up and tightened it is suprisingly solid.
