We stopped by the Hodgdon booth at the SHOT Show this morning to talk with Chris Hodgdon, who told us his new mission is to get more shooters into reloading. He said founder Bruce Hodgdon got the powder company up and running, in part, by partnering with component and press makers to set out on a cross-country road show, demonstrating for shooters how to reload cartridges.
Now, seventy years later, Hodgdon’s going to be doing that all over again.
With help from companies like Hornady, Lyman, Nosler, MEC, RCBS, Winchester and others, Hodgdon will be putting on reloading seminars and classes at gun stores around the country. Plans are being finalized now, but look for the tour to begin in the spring. They should have a formal announcement and a preliminary schedule of stops in the next few weeks.
Watch this space for more details.
