    Ball powder for 77 gr 223?

    Great info! I have some cfe223 that I’ll try. Will also try TAC as others have mentioned before ordering in bulk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ball powder for 77 gr 223?

    I load 55s with H335 and it meters like water too. I'm just wondering if I can get similar performance (3/4 moa out to 700 yards) using a ball powder with 77s. I'm sure I can run varget through my dillon measure but I would think that charge weights would be inconsistent with a stick powder.
  4. The dillon trimmer would definitely makes the job easier. But if you want to save a few pennies, the drill mounted trimmers that index off case neck are pretty nice. I’ve had the little crow WFT and now use the giraud tri-way. For $15-20 more (around $100 I think) I think it’s far superior. Trims, chamfers and deburs in on step. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ball powder for 77 gr 223?

    My go to powder for 77 gr smk is Varget. I typically only load 100 at a time so using my single stage and trickling powder is no big deal. However, I’m thinking about buying and loading in bulk (1-2k) and loading on my 650. I’d prefer not to run Varget or similar stick powder through the dillon powder measure bc it does not meter as well as a ball powder. Has anyone found a ball powder that can match the accuracy and velocities of their favorite stick powder? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve never had any issues loading scratched brass. I think it was Sierra that made some posts about brass inspection. What’s acceptable and not. I’ll see if I can find it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shadow 2 barrel reaming

    I haven’t and don’t plan on it. 1.13 really isn’t that long and less than some factory ammo. I actually tried a box of factory fmj and had 4 of 50 lock it up. The more I researched it seems that this is a known thing with CZs. Not sure why it is but I’d rather get it reamed for maximum reliability. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shadow 2 barrel reaming

    No go from patriot defense. Said the melonite barrel kills their reamers. I was having trouble with my loads (147 pc 1.13 oal) so tried some factory fmj. Had one round in 50 lock it up pretty good. I’m sure I could just load shorter but I want to be able to run anything. Thoughts on where to send? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shadow 2 barrel reaming

    I’m not sure. Don’t see any other than cold hammer forged on their website. I’ll call patriot defense tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shadow 2 barrel reaming

    What’s the go to place to have my barrel reamed? I thought it was patriot defense but their website says. “We no longer offer this service for CZ or other melonite treated barrels” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stripped slide for Shadow 2

    Yes. I saw this and thought it was the perfect solution but I don’t think it would be production legal. I messaged them but have not heard back. https://czcustom.com/cz-parts-all/red-dot-mounting/rds-plate-fixed-shadow2-sight.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stripped slide for Shadow 2

    Good thread. You really have to work on making weight when starting with a heavy gun. I’m shooting limited with a 2011 all next season so I guess I have plenty of time to figure out the best option Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
