Ammo Reloading Benches

An ammo reloading bench is a workspace that is ideal for loading and reloading guns. With handy nooks, shelves, and drawers for small parts, this bench works well for guns and ammunition maintenance.

These workbenches are also great for DIYers, hobbyists, and crafters. Best of all, the workbench looks great in different locations, including the garage, basement, or artist's studio. It is mostly used, however, for firearm and ammunition specialists.

If you need a heavy-duty firearm and ammunition workspace for extra features like a reloading press, look no further than one of these ingenious benches.

The main quality you want in an ammo reloading bench is durability. While handling flammable, potentially explosive elements like gunpowder, you want the surface on which you're working to be as sturdy as possible.

Most reloaders advise bolting the bench to a wall or the floor. This enhances the sturdiness of your workspace. The basic design of most ammo-loading benches allows for installation in any room. If you are using a press, you need to make sure your workspace is rock-solid, with no wiggle room.

The other element to finding an ideal bench for your workspace is dimensions. Many benches include open shelves, either attached to the bench or to the wall. You'll need places to put completed ammo, shells, casings, or any parts you're using.

There are also benches with pegboards, fixtures for lights, and extra power cords and outlets for optimal convenience. The type of bench you choose will largely depend on your living space.

Whether you choose a bench with solid wood construction, steel frame, and a durable work surface or a more compact one that folds into the wall, you will be satisfied with an ammo-reloading bench.

If you don't have 8' of wall space to work with, you can find workbenches that are scaled up to use the wasted vertical space so you can have the same amount of storage with a smaller footprint. You should make sure you have adequate space for a multistage process of reloading your ammo.

What we’re looking for:

Construction: 

James Huniford, the founder of Huniford Design Studio, notes that when you're looking at ammo reloading benches for your home space, you find one crafted using heavy-duty materials that possess great strength and stability. In that case, you'll find a good portion of ammo reloading benches that are constructed using both stainless steel for its superior weight capacity and solid wood. A solid wood rectangular worktop allows you to use your bench for other household and woodworking chores. You'll always want to look for ammo reloading benches on four strongly constructed legs that create a solid foundation. There may be options for height-adjustable ammo reloading benches, which add versatility and greater function. This may include additional parts like cut-outs along the legs, mechanisms, or footpads to secure the worktop at a taller or shorter height.

Finish: 

Interior designer, Rodney Lawrence suggests that when you're narrowing your choice of ammo reloading benches, you take the finish into consideration because it can affect the work surface's overall function and longevity. For instance, ammo reloading benches that are crafted using stainless steel without a powder coating finish may not hold up as well against scratches and stains, moisture, chemicals, or even extreme weather, if you keep your bench in a garage or work shed. There are some specialty veneers and paint that offer some protection, but it's best to go with something super longlasting. If your worktop is crafted out of solid wood, you'll want to ensure that it's finished with some kind of protective veneer to help prevent scratches, dents, or even splitting overtime.

Additional features:

David Netto recommends ammo reloading benches with some kind of storage that can house anything from hunting gear to everyday household items. This additional storage space can take the form of anything from drawers or shelves that sit under the worktop space to even portable heavy-duty storage cabinets with interior shelving. Speaking of portable, some ammo reloading benches are available with removable caster wheelsmaking transporting your bench an easy task. Also, depending on the various things you're using your workbench for, you may want to find an option that's height adjustable. And for the ammo reloading benches with built-in drawers or storage units, there are options that come with a lock and key to keep private or sensitive items extra safe.
