How To Reload High Accuracy 223 Remington (5.56mm) Varmint And Target Shooting Ammunition.




What do you think about this video?

Brandon Koehler: Oh yea, I'm also assuming you haven't taken very many live animals with the Vmax, nosler b.t. style round as they are 150% devastating on game. I about ripped a the last coyote I shot in half with a b.t. hit in the back half of the lungs at 250 yds. There was a football sized exit wound with all kinds of guts hanging out. If you've ever heard or seen someone talking about the red mist it's from these style bullets vaporizing game. They make gargantuan exit holes. Take some game with em you'll see:)

Brandon Koehler: A couple things. 1 every rifle is different as far as seating depth goes. Some like a the bullet jumped and some like it jammed into the lands. ( not the rifling). Rifling is the deepest part of the barrel, the lands are the part the bullet touches when jam seating. You should really get a comparator and an o.a.l. Guage it'll really help you tighten up even more :) Nice video.

James Schisler: I checked you out after watching this video. Your into everything. I'm into the 223 with bolt action and AR, new to loading.This is one of the best I found for me skill level. I have a Savage model 12 I'm ready to load now. Thanks

Mike Hunter: Problem is I can not find any of the powder I want.

GunnyJeffers: Very good video! And I've seen about 20 hours of this stuff, as I'm new to the process. I wish you told us what happened when the primer was set off when you attempted to de-prime the upside down primer. Kind of left me hanging there, but you have all fingers so it must not have been that traumatic? Thanks for posting this.

John Coray: have you done any sub sonic for 223 ? love this video thank you

Gabe Davis: The ammo you reloaded for your buddies ar didn't work because of the pressure from the load you made not from the case or the dies. the external case dimensions are exactly the same. The head and walls are slightly thicker on the 5.56 nato because they call for higher pressure for velocity and to cycle the ar.

ed christman: i use the full length die set for my ar15 5.56 & never had an issue. 

quantumfart: What is happening with the Primers, (de-primed 4000 .223rem to figure this out) The primer is being de-primed perfectly, what is happening is the primer is actually getting stuck on the pe-priming pin, then when you pull the case back out of the die that stuck primer reseats on the mouth of the primer pocket, by hitting that primer again you pop it back out. Hope this helps ;)

fwalker9961: I load for my ar with regular 223 lies and I have never had trouble. just my 2 cents

Kevin Price: Why did you not trim the cases, or did you do it off cam? either way you should have recorded that step don't ya think? If you're goin to teach people, teach them the right way.

ugotit33x: EXCELLENT

cybot63: Hi:) If i remember right back 25 years ago I was told Remington primers had a thicker wall and fit tighter in the primer pocket like mil spec. But needed a stronger firing pin to detonate it like the AR's

enterprise59: Ok.. I'm getting a Savage .223 axis soon, I reload for my 2 AR's. I have some varget that I tested for the AR's and works great.. but.. according to Hodgdon, Varget starts at 25.5 gn.. how are you getting 3k Vel?

June Lewis: I have searched everywhere for some 50 or 69 grain reloading bullets for my AR. Can anyone help on possible sources? Thanks guys!

Michael Cragg: Just a thought, it's one more step to prep the brass, but you only have to do it once, is use a primer pocket uniformer. I use it on all my brass, it squares up the pocket and makes it so you can set the primers the same way every time. The primers bottom out completely and seat just a hair below flush.

mqpatrol: Great video. Watched a few others and yours is nice and clear and concise without OCD ramblings. Thumbs up!

Ben Pou: Very well explaned and very usefull video ! Subscribed !!!

jdhtejas13: Have you had a chance to load with Superformance Powder yet? I was interested in trying it but there doesn't seem to be much data for .223

sonofscotland67: Excellent video...thanks

Tom Vollman: When you talk about bullet seating: Why don't you measure the ogive with a bullet in chamber to establish the .002 jump to the rifling? Franklin makes a device to facilitate this measurement.

Talmadge Fisher: I have a couple questions: 1.) Why do you FL resize instead of just neck sizing? 2.) do you neck turn your brass at all? 3.) What is the normal neck tension that is applied by FL resizing dies and Neck sizing dies without specific bushings?

NWoutdoorProductions: Ok cool thanck are u posting a vid on that load 

gary needham: what scope do you use with your savage edge 223 rifle?

NWoutdoorProductions: How many gr are you using with the superformence. I can't find any data on it in 223 if anyone eke can help me out that would be great thanks 

Richard Schaffer: Boyds makes a laminate stock for those guns now. A nice stock with a epoxy bedding job should make your reloads shoot a lot better from that gun

Smokey420Greenleaf: man, i hope RCBS is paying you well, as many times as you tag their name per minute in your video :-P great instructional vid though, been considering reloading for a long time now. I have saved up over 10,000 casings, but just realized that my .223 and 5.56 brass is all mixed up in the same ammo can with little to no way to sort them apart (most of the headstamps on the PMC ammo i shoot dont say what caliber the round is). will this pose a problem if say, i decide to reload ALL my ammo to 5.56 standards?

stroudads: I have the same gun (edge) and did the same thing you did with working up different loads and also came up with 25 grains of Varget 55 grain V Max as well. It shoots wonderful! Good vid. You should check out some of the vids on doing a trigger job for this gun.

Joe Blow: Then you need to deburr tip to prevent sticking.

Gunnut357mag: The same goes with my Winchester model 43 in 22 hornet, it does not like bullets seated out, it like the set deep in the case.

MR-FLIP: i have over 1000rds 223 brass who buys them

hpd707: Everybody has brass. Where can I get some damned bullets and primers!?!?

Gunnut357mag: Cool, we found that the issues with his rifle was with and incorrectly head spaced bolt from the factory

Gunnut357mag: You need to take your time and go slow, and as long as you pay attention to the directions in your reloading manual for safety, you will be ok.

Gunnut357mag: Your welcome, glad you liked it.

Gunnut357mag: The reason I do, is because the chamber on my rifle is very tight, and I had some issues with the bolt having resistance when it closed when I used neck sized only brass.

MrKing91191: the chamber differences between the 223 and 556 has nothing to do with case dimmensions. the difference is in the throught leed, the distance between the chamber and rifling. the small base dies are made for ars to make them cycle better because ammo made from those dies make the cases slightly smaller , therefore cycling better in autoloading rifles.

Jim Brannan: I'll buy them. ctjimmy00@gmail.com

Gunnut357mag: Thanks, I'm glad I could help.

Peter Edwards: Very Useful and informative cheers......

Richard Petty: thanks enjoyed watching it

Jim Scheffler: Not all rounds/guns gain accuracy from a shallower seating depth. My .22-250 actually likes rounds to be seated deeper in the case.

chalemi: That was a helpful comment. Odd what some people look at.

Gunnut357mag: The reason I full length resize is because my rifle has a very tight chamber, and i have not found any need to buy a neck sizing die for 223.

roe stalker: Grate vid well enjoyed. Thanks

Jeffrich308: Great Video! Thanks!

Dennis Pritchard: I have a Savage edge and tried to find your video on fine tuning the gun and couldn't. need help Dennis

usaisalwaysnumber1: ammo doesn't make a crap the gun you have in this vid is a el cheapo so I wouldn't expect too much ,even with match grade ammo..try a Remington sps heavy barrel now that's a lead slinger...

TheCommenter71: @hpd707 You can make bullets yourself. .
