Yeah, but you still need a PLACE to put them.

And a 550, is not small.

I lagged my bench into the stud wall behind it so it wont move. Love having bullets and brass right there and primers/powder nearby

The docking tray for the 550 bolts well into the 2x4 studs behind the 3/4 play wood I put up on the wall in my storage room. I doubled up the stud so I would have enough structure to hold the weight. Im delivering the youngest to OleMiss but will verify docking tray hole spacing when I get back home

Am adding some of their rail for tool head and primer fill tube storage.

+1 to this, and guilty as charged as well.

What is the black material you topped the bench with? I was going to put Masonite on mine.

I once had a carpenter tell me that workbench tops are supposed to be sacrificial. Make it so the top can be easily replaced or covered over.

A reloading bench top is not sacrificial.

I did mine in matte white laminate.

Easy to see small parts and powder and primers.

I'd say that the least desirable aspect of my bench is when small parts in my hands slip while over it and hit its formica surface, they subsequently bounce to locations much further away (on the floor) than I'd ever expect. Primers, bullets, screws, Dillon locator buttons, washers, you name it. Some of these have been lost and never recovered. One such loss (a custom gun part) cost me $30 + shipping.

I would recommend putting some type of edging material on the edge to keep things from rolling off the bench.
