Was just sorting my shooting calender for the year, and noticed that the NRA are offering handloading courses this year - They're aimed at the total beginner; with a day of theory and a day of practical...not bad for £95 :good:

Okay if it's kept to the intended target audience, if it were to become mandatory on the other hand....

We're not sure that the phrase 'target audience' is really appropriate 8-)

We'd be interested in such a course, but navigating the NRA site to try and find when else it's being held is a nightmare...

A simple e-mail to the relevant people will answer that for you.

The trouble with organisations like NRA running courses like this is that if lots of people take it up then the organisations start thinking about pushing to make it compulsory...they do love compulsory training in organisations and government.

What rubbish. Anybody would think that this is a new initiative when the NRA has run handloading courses for donkeys years.

Unfortunately there are those on this forum who only think in the negative when the NRA does anything.

I'm a big fan of the NRA, look at everything they have done for us over the years.

I think any suspicion could be understood after having read this thread on the NRA and benchloading.
