      Sure should count for credit in:
      Math (from simple arithmetic to ballistic calcs)
      Home Economics (need I 'splain this?)
      and, with luck, Butcher Apprenticing and Culinary Training

          That's awesome brother, there is a host of valuable information to be learned in this hobby that can be applied to other aspects of this life. I have taught hand loading for better than 25 years, and the most challenging areas individuals have struggled with is without question weights and measures. So yes, I truly believe that it counts as home schooling. Unless someone has a background that exposed them to these elements of weights and measures, the average person has no clue as to how to read a dial caliper, or how to zero and operate a bean scale. As a matter of fact, I have a very long time friend who has never been able to read a measurement that's more than one digit behind the decimal.

          I have involved every single family member in my family to hand loading from as early an age as possible. So keep doing what you're doing brother, you're building a strong relationship with your son that's highly educational.

              Pulling the handle to deprime is how I started out in about 1958. Pistol cases is how I started my kids and grandkids.

                Of course it counts as home schooling. He will probably learn more at that bench then in our modern socialist indoctrination centers that they call schools these days.

                  Great place to start the learning process. Keep up the encouragement.

                      We all have to get the young ones started, and keep them interested. Or it will fall by the way side. Well done.
