How do you like the CFE223 powder? Can you tell any difference in the copper fouling?
I’m not experienced enough in rifles to be able to comment on the copper fouling. But I do like the powder , especially because it meters like water.
It is good!
Loaded these little shells
827gr of Butt Stomping Whoop A$$....................
I will hold your beer and you shoot it............
Lol.....I believe they'll probably push on me hard. Can't be any worse than firing that 458 of yours in a sitting position lol
Getting ready for the Meet-N-Greet on the 17th. Loaded about 150 .308's for my M1A and Cetme C308. Loaded 140 6.5x55 for my Ljungman and a can full of .30-06 for my Garands.
Loaded 50 rounds of 10mmAuto for my H-P 1095 carbine, yesterday, it shot well with the 175 grain Missouri Bullets and True-Blue powders....about 1300 fps...No leading & acceptable accuracy
out to 100...winde was blowing,... weather was cold(20-30mph & 27F). Shooting off-hand...sighting with a cheep redd-dot.
High on a Mountain in New Mexico...
Working on a pile of .38’s for the lever action.
150gn 9mm in desert sand (supposedly) powdercoat
I'm sure I've asked this before, but do you powdercoat all your cast bullets? If so, why? One of these years, I hope to start casting handgun boolits.
And those look nice!
I'm tinkering with other methods right now,but for the most part it is my go to.
Recently aquired a lyman 450 lube sizer,lube and have started fooling around with lubing cast lead rifle bullets.
For me the powdercoating is just easier and cleaner. Its stable,won't chip off and stick inside your dies. You won't look like your shooting black powder when firing off your handgun. Also......its cleaner on your gun,like FMJ ammo......there will be no leading.
One drawback to it.....Finding powders that stick well and cover evenly without having to spray them
Loaded 200 9mm
Loaded another 10 - 6x45 this time with 85gr BTSP over 26.5gr CFE223.
(800) .224" diameter 55 grain FMJ's, mixed brass, CCI small rifle primer, 26.6 grains of CFE223, 2.20" C.O.L.
Two groups this size,
went into one of these....
You have been................ BUSY ! ! !
You tried any Varget powder on them
Ha! Piece of cake on Big Blue! Gonna try to do a “review” tomorrow.
First powder I used was Varget, get better results with CFE223. I’ll probably try Varget again one of these days.
Course, CFE doesn’t have that wierd smell....
1000 rounds also piece of cake on the red machine.
But I do like the Blue
