NRA Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading Course




The NRA Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading Course

This 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 6 hour, 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. (class is officially 8 hours in length)

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

Course Goal

“To provide beginning reloaders with the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to safety reload metallic cartridges.”
