Safety Notice – Hand Loaded Ammunition

Since April, there have been three accidents involving hand-loaded ammunition that have resulted in injury and damage to property.

The NRA’s investigations show the underlying cause to be errors made during the hand loading process. In all three accidents, an incorrectly loaded case caused a breech explosion.

All members should comply with manufacturer’s instructions for the use of reloading equipment, in conjunction with reputable load data. Failure to comply can result in serious injury to the shooter and others.

All members that hand load ammunition should use only reputable sources for load data and should not exceed manufacturer’s minimum and maximum loads. Members interested in home loading are encouraged to attend a training course provided by a reputable organisation.
