Beginning Reloading Classes 

Four members of the Itasca Gun Club have completed the 24 hours of training required to become NRA-certified instructors for ammunition reloading.  This certification is specifically for metallic cartridge reloading (rifle and pistol), not shotgun.  These folks are not new to reloading; they each bring decades of experience. 

IGC members designed and built a reloading bench for teaching, 6 feet long with a loading press mounted on each end so students can do some practical reloading in class.  

IGC will offer our first reloading class on Saturday October 22nd, 2022.  Other classes will be on the calendar as they are scheduled.  Until we see what capacity we have, our first classes will be limited to 6 students each.

There’ll be lecture, discussions, and lots of answers to questions.  You’ll get a student reloading handbook to keep, and a certificate of course completion.   You’ll learn the basics of assembling accurate, quality ammo and reloading safety.  We’ll cover equipment needed, cartridge components, where to find those components, making use of loading manuals and then each student will do some reloading in class.  We’re set up to load 9mm Luger and 30-06 ammunition.  And if people want to, we’ll fire the 9mm in the indoor range at the end of class.

The cost of the class will be $95, and it will run 8 AM – 5 PM.  Since we incur up-front costs to put on a class, a non-refundable $50 deposit will be required. To sign up, or to get on a list of interested people, email Steve at
