  1. Ammunition and Reloading
    Hi all, I just began reloading, particularly for .223 remington (lee dies). I just finished my first batch of 75. I cleaned, measured (none needed trimming) and resized/decapped once fired brass. (winchester and LC brass). I then loaded up nosler 55 grain HPFB bullets over 23 grains of...
  2. Ammunition and Reloading
    So reading through a new reloading manual I bought (Modern Reloading by Richard Lee...it has been great so far, and the data is extensive), brought back a topic I was considering earlier. Neck Sizing vs. FL Resizing of my .308 cases. As of now, I have always FL Resized my cases every time...
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    Still working up new loads for .223 to see what works best. My rifle is chambered at 5.56, but was wondering. If I resize 5.56 brass using my RCBS .223 dies, does this effectively make them .223 cases now? ie Able to be chambered in .223 barrels? Thanky Kindly Y'all

  6. Ammunition and Reloading
    I've recently started reloading .308 Winchester for my Savage 10 bolt-action rifle. I am aware that when loading for the same bolt-action rifle a case was fired in, that you can neck-size only, avoiding the hassle of full-length resizing, lube, etc. This is because the case is fire-formed to...
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    I'm still working out exactly what I want to do regarding sizing .308 brass. I'm definitely getting away from the full length sizer and am going to use a body die and a neck sizing die. The body die works great, sizes the case body and bumps my shoulders back just a little. I have a collet...
