DESCRIPTION: This course teaches beginning reloaders - or those interested in reloading - the basic Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude necessary to safely reload metallic cartridges. This full-day class is not a live-fire course; no shooting is involved and no firearms are permitted in the classroom for reloading classes. Do not bring any firearms or ammunition. Each student is taught reloading safety; centerfire cartridge components; using the reloading manual and reloading data; equipment; and the metallic cartridge reloading process. Students receive the NRA Guide to Reloading handbook, the Basic Reloading Student Exam, a course completion certificate, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure and a Basic Firearm Training Program brochure.
