If you are ever up in South Orange County, I would show you a little about the hobby. I'm no match reloader but I enjoy the sport without incident.

I had offered classes but guys seem to think a half day should cost $20 and cover everything.

It don’t work that way. So I never had a serious taker. And no I’m not offering now. Just advising on what you need. And that’s a few days minimum spread out over a few weeks.

I am off the 78 by tri city. Wouldnt mind meeting up first. I used to do group buys with several guys here for reloading stuff.

As a matter of fact the MRS has me cleaning out the garage right now as it got pretty cluttered and I havent loaded as much as I used to.

For all you new reloaders: about 4 months ago I didn't have any equipment, didn't know what I was doing, and was worried about blowing myself up. Now I have 3 presses have made over 1000 bullets, have a variety of powder and primarily shoot what I reload.

I asked for help like you are, and someone reached out and helped immensely. I still have questions, some dumber than others, but I've gotten so much help from everyone on here I couldn't have done it without them.

Learning reloading is definitely a hands on process.
I have 3 different case trimers but prefer one. Same with priming tool and calipers.
How much case lube to use before sizing is critical but not a book taught skill.
Digital scale a must, as is a case tumbler and media separater.

^^^ THIS ^^^ There's penty of help on here if you need it. All you have to do is ask. I started a few years ago and haven't had any regrets. Clear out your garage, you're going to need the room.

NRA Metallic Cartridge Reloading Class (8/24/2019)
This class will empower you with the knowledge of how to properly and safely reload your used casings into economical, effective, and accurate ammunition. As you hone your reloading skills you will improve your shooting skills as well.
The first session of the class is strictly academic and is held in the EF&GA Meeting Hall on 8/24/2019 from 8 AM until noon.
The second session is “Hands On” training conducted at Elvio’s reloading bench. You will reload your own cartridges and produce ammunition that day. The scheduling of this session will be negotiated during the first session.
The cost is $110 for the class. Non-members are charged an additional $15 classroom fee. If you need supplies (casings, primers, projectiles and powder) they are available for a $10 surcharge.
Prior registration and a $20 deposit is required to secure a place in this class. Registration is necessary and limited. For more information, contact Elvio Marchi at elvio1@cox.net or 760-734-3942 or register using the link at https://www. escondidofishandgame.com/classes/nra-basic-metallic- cartridge-reloading-course/
