Going to make a barrel vice for my switch barrel.

Kicking around the idea of making it so it would fit my trucks receiver hitch socket and also a bench mountable reciver. Idea is to be able to make just one vice and use it at home or away.

Wondering what are some of the things this group of creative folks have come up with.

Re: Barrel vice ideas (or pics)

Suggestion: Make the top plate to allow mounting the barrel vice as well as your loading press. When on a long road trip either shooting in competition and/or varmint hunting I'm reloading ammo and need a place to mount my press. Come out of your hitch a reasonable distance then turn straight up to a comfortable height when seated, then mount your plate. Bumpers can make a nice loading bench.
