223

  1. Shooting in my backyard

    General Firearms Discussion
    I live in New Hope on a little less than an acre and I want to know can I shoot my AR-15(.223WYLDE) in my back yard? I believe I have an adequate backstop (a ditch).
  2. I effing HATE .223!

    General Firearms Discussion
    OK. That's not entirely true. I don't really hate .223/5.56 and in fact I rather like the cartridge. What I do hate is reloading the little buggers! I feel like I'm trying to load .25acp and hate handling the tiny components and trying to look down the little necks to check powder levels. This...
  3. Load suggestions for 68 grain BTHP in 223 Wylde

    Reloading/Ammunition
    Have an AR w/ 18”, 1 in 7, 223 Wylde barrel. Have around 300 Hornady 68 grain BTHP Match bullets and half a 5# can of 4895 that was given to me. Having trouble finding load data for these bullets. Hornady website has 69 grain but not the 68. Suggestions?
  4. 223 boxer primed

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I have a bucket of 223/556 cases that have tumbled in walnut for 6 hours and I can't tell if they are boxer or berdan primed. Guess I could use a new and better pin light than I have, one with a smallest head and a bright light. No problem looking into any of the 30 cal cases or a 270 with the...
  5. Last 223 AR I build for myself

    AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    Or ARs for that matter. The rest will be uppers and those will probably be something unique. I’m stopping because I’ve been drawn more to shotguns in recent days,more on that as it develops. Anywho......223 Wylde with medlength gas. Going to see if it’s any more accurate than my 5.56 barreled...
  6. 223 Wylde Varmint Twist Rate

    AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    Starting to collect parts for a bull barrel varmint build. During BF picked up an Aero lower, LPK, upper, toolcraft BCG and 15” hand guard. Starting to think about barrel while I look for good deals on the remaining parts. It will be a 24” bull barrel with 11 degree crown in 223 Wylde. I’m...
  7. Reloading AR-15 223 Help

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I'm looking to load some 55 grain Sierra Game Kings for my AR for hog hunting. These will be for up close work when there are lots of little ones and I'm looking to take multiple shots quickly. Got other guns set up for bigger hogs (AR-10) or long range shots (too many to list here). I'm...
  8. 6x45 AR

    AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    Started my 6x45 (6-223) build. Waiting on a handguard coming via the MSGO pony express to finish it out. Then all I'll need to do is mount a scope and start sighting it in. Resized 10 223 shells this morning and that was easy peasy. Loaded 2 rounds 85gr Sierra BTSP over 27 gr CFE223. Should...
  9. 6x45 and 223

    Reloading/Ammunition
    Since y'all have talked me into the 6x45 barrel I'll be needing some loads posted to get me started. Just as well post loads for the 223 that you like also. I've got some Varget and CFE223 powder right now. Right now for the 223 I'm loading for 55 gr SP's. But I plan on adding a heavy of some...
  10. Hornady TAP 223

    General Firearms Discussion
    Any idea why they discontinued this? I have a few hundred rounds I keep in my carry mags and was needing some more but looks like will have to get something else. Or did they just change the name to critical defense? Hornady TAP 223 Hornady TAP Personal Defense Ammo 223 Remington 55 Grain -...

  12. 223 Handi

    Reloading/Ammunition
    A friend of mine has a Handi rifle in 223 and said he's been having extraction issues with it, it's an older rifle with the ejector. He said the chamber had never been cleaned so I took a chamber brush and some Hopes #9 to it then shot it. First empty case flew out like it should have, loaded...

  14. 223 is useless

    AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    So i got my target stand built and chains cut to hang the target with Friday night about 4am. Hauled it to the farm Saturday evening and set it up at the end of the shooting road. I was in a hurry so i just unloaded it and took off back to the blacktop road 1200 yards away. I had my 1000 yard...
  15. Favorite 223 Boolits

    Reloading/Ammunition
    My plan is to only use my reloads this deer season. Always used Hornady ammunition in the past, and never had any complaints. I'm interested in what y'all like (helllllooooo Nonnie! :D). I'm planning on sticking with 55 grain projectiles (1:9 twist). Thanks!
  16. Reduced load .223?

    Reloading/Ammunition
    I was thinking about trying the Titegroup load or similar loads for shooting turtles in the pond to keep from loosing my brass. Was thinking of something around 1000-1800 fps So anyone here ever try any reduced .223 loads of any kind?
  17. 223 reloading dies???

    Reloading/Ammunition
    looking to start reloading 223. I'll be loading for a precision ar and a bolt gun. Looking at all the dies out there has just gotten me confused. I know I will have to work up different loads for each firearm. Looking to produce quality ammo not just run of the meal plinking ammo. What dies...
  18. Help with Contender barrels?

    Gunsmithing
    Well, as of yesterday I ordered my first T/C Contender frame. I got it for a steal on gunbroker, but now I need to figure out what I want to do barrel-wise and could use some help. I was just going to order the .223 Super-14 barrel made by T/C as my first barrel, but then I found out that the...
