LD ,that's pretty much the way I think about it.
Ok nkbj, I'll bite what is it?
I use a fifty caliber ammo can. Everything except the rod fits in it. Put small items and patches in .22 cci plastic slide top containers. Powder in the brass pourer. All fits, compact. Works with table top or tailgate well.
Now that's really neat! It makes you wonder as to what else is out there that people have come up with.
I like it! Small enough to carry around but with everything you would need in it. Thanks for the post.
It's an old steel box picked up for a couple of bucks at a charity resale shop with partitions added and covered with corduroy to hold premeasured powder charges. My way of going traditional for my heavy bullet pieces.
Nice box.I like the pistol stand.Thank you for the pic.
Rockler Woodworking Supply has the free plans for this tool chest that could easily be adapted for range use. You might want some different wood than plywood and drawer slides other than the modern ones used in the plans.
These are not my boxes, I saw them posted on the NMLRA Facebook page by a man named Peter Wygant. But this is the style I want to copy. I always thought these were a well thought out design.
Agreed, they look very functional.
Thank you szwedj for the pics.
I can see right now that I will have more than one box, lol! If I tried to incorporate all in one box I'd end up with a foot locker !
Great looking boxes Guys, the only thing I see missing on the last one , besides the kitchen sink was a pistol stand....
Still a fantastic design and well built box...
Some of the Guys in S. Fl I shot with had some similar, with the pistol loading stand front and center by the short starter & ramrod holders.
My range box is geared for loading, cleaning and shooting needs. Maintenance and gun-smithing tools are very minimal so as to keep the size down.
This one is made of 3/8" thick walnut. The tray is for all items needed to load & swab my rifle. Space on the side of tray is for my blackpowder cans. Natural walnut with just Tung Oil finish.
Easy to make, just takes a little patience with the hand sawn dovetails.
Here's one I put together from cherry and forged hardware I made. Leather handles are bark-tan from my old bull. I figured it should look the part along with the rifle.
Very nice box a well done! Any pics of the inside? Thank you for sharing.
Nothing special on the inside, just a regular old box at this point. Have thought of putting in some dividers/trays, but haven't yet settled on a design.
Too funny, I logged in just now to see if I could find a thread for range box ideas myself. I'm currently using an old plastic fishing tackle box. It works, but I'd like to have less plastic at the line.
@Eddie2002 - Check out some of the cowboy action cart setups. There are quite a few interesting setups there. As is often said, necessity is the mother of invention!
Here is my range box which was purchased from a rifle barrel barrel vendor who was at our state shoot back in the late 1970’s. I recall paying about $30. for it at the time. They told me they made them from some of the left over wood. I continue to use it to this day.
Another nice looking and functional box. Is there anything that you would change given the opportunity for another?
I used a box I got from Harbor Freight. Added a few things. The drawers are to small but it works till this winter when I can take the time to make one.
By gummy! It even has a mirror in it so you can make sure your hair isn't mussed up.
Of course for many of our members, they gave up worrying about their hair a long time ago. I think it was just after their last 5 hairs started falling out.
