LOL I’ve been using a school desk as my loading bench for twenty years give our take LOL
I share your concern, anxiety, or worry ... not sure what I want to call mine. I've let the chaos of the current situation steal my joy and shame on me for letting it. But, I can't bring myself to shoot my "now cheap" ammo because replacing it, if you can buy it, now costs upward of 2x, 4x, 6x? more than my cost (yesterday's prices ... who knows what today's prices are). I then shift to "I can reload enough to keep shooting for quite some time" and then argue with myself "But you can't replace your primers and powder ... at least not for a reasonable price."Nothing fancy, but very functional. I put 40 lbs of weight in the desk to stabilize it. Adjusted the legs to make it level. Now I can watch football, and burn through my bullets, primers, and powder that I can’t replace. Lol
Yeah, I have no idea what "working in silence" is like ... tinnitus is my constant companion! I find my hearing and tinnitus has gotten so bad (shooting without hearing protection as a kid, heavy equipment as a young man, many hours in a Navy aircraft and then general aviation private plane, all before hearing protection became understood, advised, available, etc) ... adding background noise really kills my ability to concentrate.I CANNOT work in silence - I HAVE to have some background noise - of my choice. When I am focused on the project at hand, then I don't hear the noise, but I do hear the absence of it!
I like it. That would make for a great portable reloading bench. Where did you get the desk?
Funny guy. There was a time I made fun of the Creedmoor man bun group too, but then I quit being ignorant. I shoot prs matches with it. And I’ve won prs matches with it. I never hunt with it. I’m not a member of the “I can kill a T. Rex with it, at 2 miles group”. I understand what it’s good at, and I use it for that purpose. It’s accurate to 1000 yards, doesn’t kick so you can spot your shots, it’s easy to find components for, it doesn’t cost a lot to load for, and it makes sense to shoot competitions with.Gent's He's loading the 6.5 Needmoor, it doesn't make any difference with them, you could load them with water and they'd still shoot half moa at a K, Regardless I think it's a bad example to display on social media where a new loader would see it, I couldn't live with myself if someone got hurt, and by the wood stove?????? Really?????
