  1. Some of my once fired brass for my .223 has scratches that are deep enough to feel with my fingernail, but they are tiny. Are these dangerous? or are they too small to cause any harm? i know dents are not too bad but i dont know what to consider for reload and not, because it is quite a few of them. but they have only been fired once. Thank for any advise.
  2. So I figured I should start this as a replacement to my scattered notes on shooting, this way they are in one place. Maybe others can help or my experience can help someone else out. I will try my best to organize posts for my own and other's sake. It may very well turn into an actual diary since shooting sports have quickly become a true passion of mine.
  3. I am getting into the sport of 3-Gun. What are the advantages, or your experiences, with 9mm carbines versus a .223 rifle?
  4. I have a bunch of once fired Lake City 5.56 with very shallow primer pockets. They measure on average .090 vs. spec of .117-.123. In 7 years of reloading and 10's of thousands of rounds I can't say that I have seen this and have always used Lake City for my match brass. Any ideas on what the root cause is? Machine gun brass? Built out of tolerance? Obviously it is resulting in high primers that are fully seated. I tested the offending cases and they seem to function but I'm very uncomfortable with it. Thoughts?
  5. I recently bit the bullet (and drained the bank account) and purchased a Dillon Super 1050 reloader with a complete Mark7 Autodrive setup for 9mm & .223/5.56mm. I am asking for any and all recipes you folks might have for 9mm to meet Minor PF for USPSA/IPSC Production, IDPA SSP/ESP, as well as Steel matches and general target shooting. Ideally, I would like to use the same basic load for various pistols including Glock 19/17/34, CZ SP01, EAA/Tango, and Sig P320. I am looking for 9mm loads using 124gr projectiles (have plenty on hand already) and either Titegroup, CFE Pistol or
  6. OK. So after probably close to four months of anxiety, reading, laziness, 'it's too hot outside to work on the bench' isms after getting my Dillon 650 I finally sat down and worked all the kinks out and got my first 20 bullets of .223 loaded with 8208 XBR. I started with X-Treme Bullets 55 Grain FMJ and based on the limited data http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/rifle?&CartridgeName=223+Remington&OrderBW%5B%5D=55&Manufacturer%5B%5D=All&Powder%5B%5D=IMR+8208+XBR had I started with the lowest number of 21.5 Grains. I only managed to crush one .223 brass while setting up the
  7. Last week I received all the components needed to start reloading .223 on my Dillon XL650. I've been loading 9mm for about a year now and I'm wanting to develop a load for training with my AR-15. I loaded some test rounds and went out yesterday to record data with my chrono. My loads were.... - Hornady 55 grain FMJ - PMC Brass trimmed to 1.750" - CCI Small Rifle No. 400 Primers - CFE223 (test rounds loaded at 24.0, 24.5, 25.0, 25.5, 26.0, 26.5) - 2.245" OAL * shot out of 14.5" barrel I searched the forum and web for CFE223 load data and found most used 25.0 grains - 27.0 grains so I
  8. I am reloading both .223 and now 300 Black Out. I am having a help of a time getting the right size in the primer pockets for both 5.56 LC and .223 FC Remington. I either swage too much and the primers drop out or are loose or my Dillon 500b will not seat about 30% of my primers which can be very frustrating. Any one have some tips on calibrating the Dillon Super Swage? I have heard you can over swage and you should set it up to just swage the opening of the primer pocket and not swage too deep. I also use one of those "cutters" to lightly cut out the crap before I swage. I had thought I woul
  9. Hello all, I'm a new loader running into a lot of problems that are frankly making me want to give up, sell my stuff, and buy more factory ammo instead. I'm hoping someone can help me... Relevant Equipment list: RL550B press, Dillon dies (.223), Lyman .223 case gauge, "WFT" .223 trimmer Relevant Components list: Hornady 75gr BTHP Match bullets, Wolf .223 primers, once-fired Lake City brass (fired from my rifle, all from the same case of Federal M193), H335 powder, 2.260 COAL Relevant Firearm: home built AR built around a White Oak 20" 1:7 SDM barrel When I first got my press, everything se
  10. Being experienced in pistol reloading I have no experience with rifle rounds. I have found and prepared the brass. Found the primers wolf .223. I found a decent buy for some .223 bullets. Speer 65 grain gameking spitzer boat tail. I cannot find any reloading data on this bullet for CFE 223 or ARComp powders. I have searched the powder manufacture and bullet manufactures websites but have found nothing. I have found web responses saying use a smaller bullet load and work up. Found another article saying not to to use the smaller use the heavier load and work up. I do not want to blo
