Hello james and welcome from The Republic of Texas.
Ask your questions here until you get out of probbie status, someone most probably answer.

Welcome to the board. Several thread on building benches. Might have to hunt for them, but there are quite a few.

Hello James308,
greetings and welcome from New York. Where from ? Build a bigger bench , too easy to run out of room. Get a good manual and read it, will be your bible and reference book for years to come. :cowboy: So you joined this group of Bandits did yah ! Great- now get a good seat and jump in when ready and meet some of our gang. Enjoy your stay with us. Great rounds the 08 & 45ACP easy to load for and plenty of brass around. Just watch out for the SP primers on some of them 45 cases.:confused::thumbs:

Welcome from North Dakota

As far as the bench goes, build it as long as you have room for. It will get too small really fast.

James,
Getting started will not matter what you want to load- going to have to do it sooner or later. Just read the manuals and loading order when starting out, may want to re-read a few chapters over to just let it sink in. Bottleneck cases use a good lube ( Imperial the way to go- for lube ) Straight wall just use Carbide dies. Not sure ask questions.:thumbs:
