Absolutely. There's no substitute for a hands-on "instructor."
The man who taught me shot NRA bullseye, IPSC, and PPC. He cast his own bullets as well.
Consequently, after the first 6 months, I actually knew more than a lot of folks who had been reloading for 10 years.
Ya can't beat "hands on" instruction.
