Default Reloading classes?

Can anyone point me in the direction of a local reloading class? Total noob when it comes to that.

Sorry. Apparently San Diego. Probably something closer is available.

Brian is worth the drive up from San Diego honestly, particularly if you have any other reason to come this way.

He's an amazing resource to the shooting community of all of SoCal, IMO.

Edit to Add: Don't hesitate to call him if you have a couple questions.

If you do make the drive don't worry about him being busy. If he's got a customer you can relax and he'll get to you and show you what you need/how to do it when he gets some downtime.

His prices are very reasonable. He might be slightly higher than you find a great sale at Midway or something, but they aren't high.

Do you just have some questions or need some assistance with something? There are quite a few of us in San Diego that reload.

Lots of info on YouTube. You can at least get an idea on the setup you'll need.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I'm actually asking for a relative. He shoots roughly 5k rounds a month and figures it's cheaper to reload. He doesn't even know where to start so was looking for a class.

if itís mostly pistol heís shooting that much, itís pretty straight forward. would likely want to go with a progressive press with a case feeder. i dove straight in on a progressive with a dillon 650 with case feeder. made sure to watch a lot of videos and took my time. when i first started i only did a few at a time maybe about 10 rounds. made sure to take my time and checked each step multiple times to make sure i did everything safe. i regularly can load about 100 rounds in about 12-15 mins. the press is rated for a lot more per hour, but i donít shoot much and i still take my time to make sure i donít get any hang ups.
