NRA Publications Armorer Christopher Olsen had the chance to spend a few days reloading Hornadyammunition and putting it to good use at Gunwerks' long range shooting course. Get an inside look at what he learned with this gallery.
After a few hours of studying indoors, it was time to take our new skills to the next “classroom,” which was the reloading and shooting bench. Gunwerks' facility provides a great environment where—we were able to load and shoot all in one place, an efficient way to do things.
Hornady provided Lock-N-Load Classic Deluxe kits, which made reloading a snap, literally. Lock-N-Load die bushings make swapping dies a breeze without having to recalibrate when switching between dies.
It's time for a little perspective. The goal of the course was to reload ammunition and hit a tennis ball from the building in the center of the picture, 1,000 yards away. Talk about stretching it out.
