NRA Members' Home Loaded Ammunition Survey

I commend to you all today’s NRA quick questionnaire about reloading. It does not take long at all, and is great fun filling the box for “Other calibres not listed above” ! Depending on what they do with the results then perhaps HBSA should get involved:


Home loaded ammunition is of critical importance to full bore shooting in the UK. Many full bore shooters use almost exclusively ammunition they have carefully assembled, and achieve impressive standards of accuracy, consistency and safety. The NRA is exploring schemes to ensure good practice on Bisley, MoD and private ranges and is considering developing a number of additional initiatives such as expanding training programmes etc.

We are however very aware that we have scant data about the amount of home loaded ammunition produced, where it is shot, the amount of formal and informal training received, and the reasons why home loading is becoming more popular.

I will be grateful if you could take 3 minutes to complete the attached survey - please click on the link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=UcueOLvTu_2f6VlYB4JYRuGg_3d_3d - responses will be confidential and a summary of the results will be published later this year.

I can reassure you there is no hidden agenda (a good number of NRA Trustees are committed Home Loaders!) as we are keen to develop our strategies to support and develop this important area of full bore shooting on the basis of facts reported by our shooters.

Kind regards

Andrew Mercer
NRA Secretary General
