The Basic Reloading Class is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of reloading straight-wall pistol cartridges. Focusing on popular calibers such as 9mm, 40S&W, and 45ACP, this class will introduce essential terms, definitions, and fundamental concepts related to reloading.

Additionally, the class will touch upon the functions and features of multi-stage presses. All necessary materials will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring their own notetaking materials to enhance their learning experience.
