    I'm still learning about the program to get the details. From what I understand, this is the course description:



    What will you learn in a NRA Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading Course ?

    A one-day training course.

    The NRA Basic Metallic Reloading Course exposes students to the fundamentals of metallic cartridge reloading. The Course is designed to enable shooters with little or no prior experience in reloading to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to produce safe, consistent and accurate reloaded ammunition.

    The NRA Basic Metallic Reloading Course is the result of a joint effort involving the NRA Education and Training Division, the members of the National Reloading Manufacturers Association (NRMA), prominent manufacturers of ammunition, firearms and reloading equipment, and other organizations and individuals having specialized skills and expertise in reloading, ballistics and related topics. Every effort has been made to provide the necessary basic information to reload safely and effectively, and to present the technique of reloading in a logical, easy-to-understand sequence of steps.

    Course Lessons:

    ■Introduction to reloading and reloading safety.
    ■Centerfire cartridge components.
    ■Using the reloading manual and reloading data.
    ■Metallic cartridge reloading equipment.
    ■The metallic cartridge reloading press.
    ■Metallic cartridge reloading practical exercise. (You will reload cartridges that are ready to fire.)

    Yep...looks like you'll have a press set up and everyone gets to roll one.
    Is this part of what you wanted me to do?

    I took that class a couple of years ago, money well spent. Anyone who intends to reload and has not yet started should take it to help avoid a mistake or two.
    If Obama is the answer; how stupid was the question?

    That course description came from another source as the actual NRA course description that I found earlier was lacking alot of detail. Its still all up in the air as to whether we'll run this class. I really just wanted to see if anyone was interested. We'll have to do some more investigating now that I see a few folks are interested.

    oh, and no, the video thing that I wanted you to do is something different.

    Tell your wife how much money you'll save and she'll buy the press herself

    Yes but...If a crazed Elephant breaks loose from Ringling Bros, you will be one of only two people able to stop it, in the area.

    We can charge the city lots for the job.

    C'mon, any fool knows you just let the zombies take care of the elephant, then there are plenty of folks equipped to take care of the zombies. When are you guys going to start living in the real world anyway?

    Oh yeah, and what is this thing called "thread drift?"
