Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading

The NRA Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading course exposes students to the basics of reloading centerfire metallic cartridges with little or no prior experience in reloading.

Although the course can be completed as quickly as eight hours, the amount of information presented, and the probability of intensive question and answer sessions on the included topics, makes it likely that the course will take longer.

Students will receive the NRA Guide to Reloading handbook and intensive lessons on the basics of reloading.

Wow i didn't know they had such classes. This is a good idea for those just getting into the hobby. When i got into reloading i read a ton of books and got a lot of instruction from my Dad.
