  1. 5.56 / .223 Small Base Die

    Reloading/Ammunition
    So, what's everybody's favorite? Started looking at some last night, and posted reviews are all over the place. One consistent factor - use lots of lube (which I do). Also, since I use a full length sizer to size and deprime, do I need to get the set, or just the FL sizer/decapper? These are...

    I have a .223 Savage and want to shoot 5.56 in it. I have some 5.56 M-855 with green tip, 62 grains. With this round in chamber, I have .160" freebore. Sounds like plenty to me, but what do you chamber guys say about it? Do I have enuf freebore to be safe? Thanks, Pete

  4. .223 vs 5.56 question

    Long Guns
    Why are not all rifles accepting these 2 rounds not in Wylde chambering? Is the .223 inherently more accurate in it's own chambering and same for 5.56? Think if I were a manufacturer, I would want my rifle as versatile as possible, hence the Wylde chamber. Ruger does a lot of theirs like this if...

    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.
