I can't believe you wrote that Jim!Nothing beats knowledge from the prehistoric members here. Uggghhhh
I always inquire if people that want to start loading their own ammo are mechanically inclined. If you work on your own stuff, car, fix the washer/dryer, replace a water pump on the car, change your own oil. Have a decent set of tools? Then loading your own ammo is really quite easy.reloading classes portland??
I learned how to reload by asking questions in this forum. Several members here are very experienced and have been a wealth of knowledge for me. I'm still fairly new too, but components for .223 are cheapest and widely available I just went to town on that. I asked a lot of questions here as I went along. Then I was able to develop a load for my 30-30 in just a few range sessions, ready for fall hunting..223 and 30-30 mostly.
very cool. lmk if you start up againI used to teach classes in my garage several years ago and it was a lot of fun and it was always nice to make a couple extra dollars since we were raising 4 children at the time.
I developed my own curriculum and half the class was learning all about the process and the other half was actually pulling the handle and each student walked out with 50 rounds of pistol ammo that they loaded themselves.
I have been considering starting this up again but with the prices and availability of components I'm not sure how easy it would be. Yes, you can read and watch video's all day but until the time comes that you pull that handle and feel the case being sized or bullet seated or applying proper crimp it's just nice to have someone else there with you....IMHO
