    Looking for a new bench box?

    Need advice

    Today i am using a Viper 18" 2 drawer tool box on the bench for reloading. And the Viper is heavy weight = 23,5 pound (empty)
    Its only for the stuff i need on my bench...

    So what i am after is a light weight box to have on the bench for reloading only
    Any suggestions?
    Please advice.

    - Rifle in a Storm iM3200
    - Flag/stands have a separate case
    - Frontrest and rear bag own case

    Boyd Allen helped me set up one of my old leather Jeppesen Flight Chart cases as a carry all for the necessities to reload at the bench in a small light package. I don't have it where I am at the moment or I would post some pictures, but maybe Boyd can post them.

    I have seen Harley Baker's rig at the Cherry Ridge Bench Rest Clinic and it is a nice set up, but I think it is probably very heavy. Maybe he will post some pictures.

    Just my 2 cents

    Kennedy tool boxes used on ebay or other used equipment site, or a size 12 tennis shoe box.

    AUGHH, my back!

    I have always used a Sear's Craftsman two or three drawer tool chest. They are easy to find, cheap and fairly light weight. If you need a lighter box, plastic might work. Look at Plano drawer tackle boxes. They are more expensive but very sturdy. You might try e-bay or craig's list and find used boxes cheaper.

    Have looked at several of those from Plano. But can not make up my mind...

    Price is no concern if I find the right one(?) When I look at Plano tackle box, I think it is to much small spaces and do not know how to fit it to my reloading gear...

    anotyer commet

    Don't forget to line the drawers abd drawer walls with cork so you don't get pink paint on your instruments, etc.
    If it weighs under 50 lbs loaded you don't have enough stuff.
