2017 Reloading Seminars

January 10 - September 19, 2017
Location: Kittery Trading Post Katahdin Seminar Room

Learn to Reload! Whether you have reloading experience or you're just getting started, KTP has a class for you!

More and more shooting sports enthusiasts are reloading their own rifle and pistol cartridges and shotgun shells. Less expensive than buying factory loads, reloading also allows a shooter to develop more accurate loads for specific firearms. Kittery Trading Post is offering two free seminars in beginning and intermediate reloading, taught by John Trepanier of the KTP shooting sports staff.

Intro to Reloading

Introduction to Reloading is designed for people considering or just getting started in reloading their own firearm ammunition. It will cover basic tools and techniques, safety, powders and casings, how to efficiently set up and use a press, and will include plenty of time for questions. Limited to 30 attendees.

Intermediate Reloading

The Intermediate Reloading seminar will be "hands on" and is specifically for people looking to increase their knowledge of reloading technique, as well as those members of the public who were able to attend KTP's extremely successful Introduction to Reloading seminars. Limited to 15 attendees.

Introduction and Intermediate Reloading will be held on Tuesdays, 6–8pm in the Katahdin Seminar Room at Kittery Trading Post on Rte. 1 in Kittery, Maine. Seminars are presented as individual classes –you are welcome to attend one or all of the classes in the series. Because of the personalized nature of the instruction, students will be able to grow their skills with each class.
