Check with H&H. They have given reloading classes in the past. Don't know if they still do.
I know this is probably done been asked many times before so please bear with me.
Where is the best place to go to a basic reloading class in okc?
I would like to learn for .308, .223 and 7.62x39
I watch these videos on you tube. It doesn't look real hard but an hour or two class would be worth a lot to me.
i was at H&H yesterday. they are moving or expanding the the reloading section to the east. they guy at the counter said they will have a lot more stuff out soon.
Canadian Valley Tech Center in El Reno (hwy 66 between El Reno and Yukon) is having a 5 (or 6) day evening class coming up the first part of October. It all occurs in one week and costs $69 I think. Seems like a pretty good deal.
I looked at the el Reno vo tech class, that looks like a great chance to Learn reloading. Pretty cheap for 24 hours of training. Thanks for the tip!
You can also learn alot just by talking to the guys at H&H in the department and videos on YouTube, without spending a dime.
Most of the major press manufacturers have easy to watch videos you can watch online or get from them. Reloading isn't hard. It just requires a great deal of attention.
You can buy the lyman 49th reloading book and read all about reloading and the steps involved.
You will need a reloading book anyway..After reading if you still do not get it you may need to take a class.
How much cheaper does it end up being?
it is a substantial saving...how much depends on what caliber you are loading....30-30 for example is 10c to 20c for the bullet--5c to15c for the powder and primer and your brass will wear out at a rate of 2c/3c per round per firing...call it 6.00 to 8.00/box of 20---and the cost goes up from there...(less for handguns/more for bigger bores ) looks like you save a bundle but actually you just get to shoot more....its just good to be able to "roll your own" --fire one that you built--and try different componets....for the guy that just goes hunting in the fall--probably a no---if you like to shoot its definitly a yes...some calibers are $40-50 per box retail....you can load them for 15 or a little more
One of the easist ways to learn basic reloading is get a Lee Loader for the caliber you want, and a powder scale. The scale is actually optional, as the kit comes with a powder dipper that will throw the correct charge with several different powders. Then if you enjoy the process you can work your way up as far as you care to go. If you don't enjoy it, you not out much money at all. Even though the Lee Loader seems primitive, you can produce some very fine ammunition with it.

seriuosly though, i never stood on a chair to cast but have not advanced much either! the lee loader will do one caiber just fine.
i recommend the lee classic turret anniversary set. simply and effective.
Henry's in Yukon had a reloading class earlier in Aug. Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/pages/Henrys/137022323009753
You might call them and see if they have more on schedule.
