Welcome to The Reloading Class. We offer classes in reloading and handloading in southern California, in the Pasadena area. On this page, you will find descriptions of the classes that we offer, but please visit our FAQ, Shop and Contact pages for more information.

NOTE – if you register for both Level 1 and Level 2 courses for the same day, save $25 and only pay the bundle price of $175. USE COUPON CODE “COMBO” at checkout.

All classes currently on the calendar are held on Saturdays, Level 1 from 0900-1230 and Level 2 from 1300-1630.

Level 1 – Introduction to Reloading (3.5 hours) $100

In this class you will learn principles and theory of metallic cartridge handloading, proper equipment (press, dies, scales, powder measures, etc.) setup and usage, reading and understanding load data and load recipes, and the proper method to “work up” a load. This class lays the foundation upon which all future loading knowledge and skills will be built. Safety is emphasized above all else in all of our classes. This class isn’t all theory and lecture, though– you will be loading ammo in this class!

Please see our FAQ for more information.

All tools, safety equipment (glasses), and reloading components are included in the price of the class.

Level 2 – Reloading Continued (3.5 hours) $100

This class picks up where Introduction to Reloading leaves off, but it’s not just “more of the same”– New considerations, techniques and equipment are introduced.  After successful completion of this class, you will be equipped with the knowledge needed to safely and effectively work up loads for maximum precision and effectiveness for nearly every type of cartridge for nearly every type of rifle and handgun.

You will load both rifle and pistol cartridges from start to finish, from case prep all the way to final inspection. You will learn to use tools and techniques that give you total control of each step of loading.

Please see our FAQ for more information.

All tools, safety equipment (glasses), and reloading components are included in the price of the class.

Level 3 – Advanced Loading (5 hours) $150

In this class, we explore concepts that you will use to achieve optimum results in every area of loading. This class contains very detailed presentations and discussions on topics such as: headspacing, concentricity, OAL considerations, data interpolation, charge volume vs. charge weight, ballistics, material qualities, component selection, and much more. This goal of this class is to arm the loader with the knowledge required to negotiate virtually every obstacle and challenge they might face in loading for any application.

Please see our FAQ for more information.

All tools, safety equipment (glasses), and reloading components are included in the price of the class.
