I was in a hurry and had a empty 10rd mag so i loaded 10 to top it off..Only 10 :hmm:
Ive loaded 38spl shot shells with spent Small and Large primers.. It was crazy what it would do to small stuff. They grouped horrible tho.It was on the ground but not laid totally flat.
The crimp was over a thin cardboard wad. And actually I use a 45acp bullet seat die to lightly round the brass edge over the wad. I also dropped hot wax over the end as someone had suggested in the past.
I get home tonight I'll put one flat on the ground and see how it does.
I really wish I had some number 9 shot to try.
They are free and feel like I have an unlimited supply.LOL now there's a ideal to get rid of some of these.
What yall goin to use them for? They look better than anything i load!Got 50 rounds of .223 loaded so far this morning -- time to reward myself with cake, and then load some more!
55 grain, .224" diameter FMJ, mixed brass, 26.6 grains of CFE223, Winchester small rifle primer, 2.20" C.O.L.

These were really dirty. Shooting on the farm and chasing brass around all the dirt and you only get a few reloads before you have to tumble them to figure out what caliber they are....I thought you only used dirty bullets?!?!?! 5:
Split necks, folded necks, wrinkled shoulders, and some necks rolled in.That sucks. What was wrong with them?
Your the best! Ill trade you something for it.Good luck. I've never bought "new" brass, 34% is ridiculous for a failure rate. I bought a bulk box of 2k pieces of range pick up 223's recently. Less than 10 pieces were bad. Side note, at least now I know who to save any 300 WM brass for.
Goody!!Hey Jonathan I'm gonna put you some on an order I have coming for you to try. New Brass. I think I saw it available! Will have with the 2200.
It is Christmas time after all.Now I gotta decide whether V-MAX or Z-MAX would look cooler.
You wont be disappointed one bit in the bluekoolaid. I got 2 550s and love them. Loaded 500 rounds of 223 last night on one in about 70 minutes.I like the blue kool-aid. One day I'll stop drinking the red Lee kool-aid and get one.
