Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading – BASC Marford Mill, Wrexham, North Wales

Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

Aim

This course is designed to equip the candidate with the knowledge and skills required to undertake basic metallic cartridge reloading.  It is an ideal introduction to reloading.

This 2 day course will provide the novice or less experienced home loader with a sturdy foundation of knowledge. You will need to have a Firearms Certificate and your own rifle along with some reloading equipment. Safety, law and technique will be dealt with in a classroom situation, and the practical aspects will introduce the basic equipment and safe techniques for reloading.

The course allows candidates plenty of time to practice under supervision what they learn in the classroom and develop a number of loads they can test the following day on the range.

Day two – Range testing loads developed previous day
