Default Class for reloading?

Does anyone know of a gunshop providing reloading classes? I have it set to purchase a set-up but would like to be taught by a pro before diving in feet first. Also if there are any Calgunners who are reloaders gracious enough to teach me personaly I would be very grateful. I am located in Sonoma County and willing to drive some distance to meet-up. please email any responses to wynetime@gmail.com

If you are close to a sportsman's warehouse, they do basic reloading 101 classes for free. It is just an overview of reloading and good info.

The NRA has classes, but I'm not sure where they hold them.

Most reloading manuals have a lot of information that you will need and is primary piece of equipment required on any reloading bench!!!

You have the right idea. I am currently helping out a co-worker new to the hobby. So he and his neighbors (one is a Vietnam Vet) are pooling resources. They almost have enough components to get started plus I helped out with some SRP's and H335

Its great getting together with like minded people and passing on knowledge. Good times

D2 gun shop in Cotati or Rohnert park it is close to hiway 101 and 116 off ramp. Reloading is pretty easy if you get a couple of manuals and study up.

Did you mean to say "B2"? The only shop I know of in that area is called B2 Enterprises.

What are you trying to reload? Shotshell? Metallic Cartridge? Pistol? Rifle?

It's B2 and I took the class. $25 bucks but you get shown how to set up, get walked through the steps and load one round. Good info on what you do, or don't, need. I think the instructor was Ron. Funny guy. Good shop too. I felt it was worthwhile.

IMHO, find someone to come over, look over on your set up and walk you through it. I couldn't find anyone this far north in Sonoma County.
