Space limited to 15 students

This class has been presented numerous times to Forensic Firearm and Toolmark Examiners in Germany since 1999. The goal of this workshop is the education of Firearm Examiners in the field of reloading, reloaded ammunition, components and the implications for the forensic analysis caused by these factors.

This class will now also be held in the US. With the support of the Albuquerque Police Department the class will be offered in a 3-day format on September 22nd – 24th, 2014 at the Albuquerque Police Department Crime Lab: 5350 2nd St. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107

The presence of reloaded ammunition is a fact. Companies such as Dillon, RCBS, Lee, Lyman, Hornady and many more are producing tools, dies and equipment to reload cartridges. Bullets, brass, powder and primers are available at local firearm dealers as well as through mail order. High prices and the (un)availability of factory ammunition are factors contributing to the interest in reloading fired or new cartridge cases.

Reloaded ammunition may influence the findings in bullet and case comparison, distance determination, a shooting reconstruction and last but not least the personal safety of the examiner shooting evidence ammunition.

The seminar consists of theoretical, practical and hands-on lessons.
The sources of reloading components and equipment will be discussed, as well as the reasons for reloading.

The procedures and tools involved in reloading a cartridge will be explained in depth as well as the toolmarks produced or removed by these operations. Subclass characteristics left on bullets, cases and primers by these operations will be explained and shown.
A practical session where each student examines individual samples and evaluates if and why this would be a reloaded cartridge will be part of the class.

Students will have the “hands-on” chance to practice the reloading process. Cases will be formed to an obsolete caliber and (optional) casting lead bullets will be demonstrated.


Quote from a firearm examiner with over 30 years experience after the workshop:
“This was one of the most valuable courses I have attended in my career!”

A brochure about the class is now available here.

Sorry but the forum does not accept .xlsx spread sheet files.
So I have to email the registration form directly.

Greetings
