    I've been reloading for a few years. I took about 3 year break from reloading and just recently pulled everything out of the attic and realized how unorganized I am.

    Record keeping I use index cards with all the info I require which works ok for me. Though not very organized.

    Keeping track brass appears to be the biggest issue as I have lots of brass with different firings on them intermixed together stored in 1/2 gallon sized plastic jugs.

    Just curious what systems others are using

    Maybe this view will help put it in perspective.
    Working on expanding it somewhat,i still need room for a paint booth and sand blast cabinet so i can start airbrushing some of my guns.

    Is there a thread for folks to post pics of their reloading areas? I think it could be good thing!

    Here's mine, pretty much everything has a place in my reloading room. For brass I just have Rubbermaid tubs that I sort everything in and they fit in the white cabinets. Record keeping is logging is a detailed binder that I picked up years ago, I think from Midway. It kinda helps owning a Cabinet shop. :D I have always used 1 1/8" MDF for my tops, very dense and hard, just throw a coat of clear over it and you got a nice looking top. The doors are all a Diamondplate pattern Melamine. I also have not loaded for 7 years after moving to a new house and I finally got everything done and back to loading!!

    What's the height of your cabinet that your presses are on?

    They are 37" high. The Snap-On stool (from Costco) works great because it is adjustable in height to use on the presses or the workbench.
