Q&A with Zeke Ernst, competition pistol shooter and reloading manager at the H&H Shooting Sports Complex in Oklahoma City

Q: Has the ammo shortage created more interest in reloading?

A: Oh my gosh, yes. Tenfold. We teach reloading classes and they have been booked for two months in advance. We are just now starting to catch up. There has been a massive influx of new interest in reloading. It's a natural transition. If I can't get ammo, can I make ammo? When people find out how easy it is and the cost savings, it's a natural evolution.

Q: What's the best way to get started?

A: Several manufacturers make single stage reloading kits. They are typically around $400. I strongly recommend that a new reloader take an introduction to reloading class. At H&H, it is a three-hour class and the cost is $50. When you leave, you have a lot more confidence and knowledge.
