Time for me to start using all those dies I got...
Link Posted: 7/21/2008 12:34:31 PM EDT
There are a number of reloaders on the forum, I don't know of any that are NRA certified though.

Many years ago I was a certified Hunter Safety Instructor and Home Firearms Instructor, I dropped the certifications when NRA started charging you to keep it valid. It didn't cost them anything to keep me as an instructor, they didn't send out any materials or anything else beyond a paper ID card with an expiration date, so they could easily save that money by not putting an expiration date on it, so I saw no reason why I should pay a renewal fee for the privilege.

Aron,
Need any help, just let me know.
Bring some brass over for 223 or 308 or handgun, and I'll be glad to show you how.
Anybody here wanting to know is welcome to my help.

I have a set of .375 H&H dies, with a ton of once fired brass...will that work? Otherwise, I got a bunch of .38 Super and .45 ACP brass.

I have dies for 6X45, .375 H&H, .458 SOCOM, and .30 Herrett(for loading .30 HRT)

We can load whatever you have dies and components for. I don't have any of those calibers or dies, nor components, other than the 45 ACP.
Straight walled cases are a bit different than reloading cases with shoulders i.e process is different for a 308 vs 45 ACP (but not much).
Whatever you want to load, we should be able to do if we have the material and dies.

What part of OK are you in?
Link Posted: 7/22/2008 8:06:13 PM EDT
I'm in North OKC, northwest of Lake Hefner. 122nd and McArthur to be exact.
You're welcome to come along with Aron.

I split my time between Fort Sill and OKC.

I have all the stuff to reload. I even built a building (16x16) just for that. Reloaded at a couple of different guys houses, trying to learn. Havent reloaded a single round in my own shop yet I'm probably the closest guy to you also.

hi guy -iam in lawton oklahoma -i load 9mm 40mm 45mm -7mm -i have two 550 and a rcbs rockchucker-for larger cartridges

Ok...so which cartridge should I work on getting loaded up? I can't get brass for .458 SOCOM, I have brass but not bullets for .375 H&H, I may or may not be able to get 6.8 SPC brass to form .30 HRT from, and I don't have a 6mm-223 upper....

That pretty much scratches rifles off the list right now.

Maybe I need to get some powder and bullets for all the .45 brass I have.

That'll work.

You are supposed to provide the primers!

I can do that in a limited number. I don't have but a couple of hundred large pistol primers. I loaded up all of my 45 ACP brass a few months ago.
Just bring your brass, bubba, and some bullets of your choice. We'll use Unique powder.
I loaded up most of my brass with 7.0 gr of Unique and a 200 gr hollow point. Accurate with good stopping power.
We can do the same load with your brass if you want'.

Lemmie check my budget....the 1st of the month is when my rent check is due...

If anyone in the Edmond area wants help learning, I'm available. I'm not certified or anything. In fact, I've only been reloading for 2 years. But I've done thousands of rounds and haven't blown my face off. I'm pretty sure I can get you through the basics and on your own.

I'm not in OK, but thanks for your post, as it let me know about a program I did not know existed.
