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




What do you think about this video?

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.

georgeterro: 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. .

Gunnut357mag: I have actually, it was the very first item I got when I got into reloading. I did like it, however, I quickly sold it and upgraded to my rockchucker press. The reason I did this, is because I realized that is does take a lot of time to reload only a few cartridges, when I can do 3 times as may with great ease and consistency on a full sized single staged press. It would work well to get you started if you are only doing one or 2 calibers, but you are better of to buy a single stage starter kit

Joe Blow: Possible cause of primer stuck during resizing is because of military spec brass that has a crimped primer. The crimp reduces radius on case primer hole and causes spent primers to catch.

Gunnut357mag: Thanks, for the comment.

Gunnut357mag: Sorry, but it is not up yet. I will get it up soon, but I have quite a few projects happening now.

ssj7warrior: Is it possible to melt lead and use them as bullets?

Joseph Smith: Thanks for the information on the different die sets for the AR and hunting rifle. Well made video, Thanks for making it.

phillr3: I will. Contact me at cul8r_rp@hotmail

Gunnut357mag: NO, it is not nonsense. Some 5.56mm chambered rifles like his can be picky with the ammo you run through them. He has tried 26 kinds of both 5.56 and 223 factory ammo through his AR 15, and the only 223 ammo that would cycle without any issues is federal. Hornady, PCI, PRVI, and Remington all gave him issues. I have tried different brands of brass though my 223 dies, and they will not let the bolt close fully. HE bought the small base dies, and we have not had any issues since.

clloydhi: Get a Single stage press...RCBS or Lee...anyone is good. Then when you have mastered the basics get a Dillon 550. You can load handgun and rifle with that machine and make accurate stuff. I reloaded 308 and 30/06 on a 550 and got half inch groups with my ammo/rifle combo.

Gunnut357mag: It is not that, but rather the decaping pin was chipped.

Jim Brannan: You say rotate the shell counter clockwise and it looks like you go clockwise. Does it really make a difference?

clloydhi: First get the Lyman and Lee reloading manuals and read thru them. They will give you an idea of what you need. Never EVER use data you see on youtube or any other site without checking the load with an established data source. I use the Hodgdon online and Lyman, Sierra, Nosler, Lee, Accurate Arms and Hornady manuals. "Yeah, I have a lot of books to cross reference loads...that's why I haven't blown up any guns in my 28 years of loading!

Gunnut357mag: Yes, soft points are cheaper, but when you are hunting small varmints you cant beat the stopping power of a polymer tip. For larger game however, a soft point is a must.

bak1911: Hey gunnut is your reloading set up here the RCBS Rock Chucker Supreme Master starter kit? If so how do you like it and could you do a review on it for me im looking to upgrade from my lee kit and looking at this kit. thanks man.

ontarioknivesNS7: I use same dies without problem in ar-15

imperialfragments: might have to give varget a try..... i usually roll with H335 or RL15

Gunnut357mag: I found data in the hornady handbook of reloading 9th edition for it. Also there is some info on it on hodgons website.

Gunnut357mag: Yeah, his rifle actually had chamber issues from the factory.

usaisalwaysnumber1: bro you could have put 100 bucks with what you gave for that and got a Remington sps varmit heavy barrel.i can actually shoot 5 shots at 150 yards and be one hole..now that's accuracy..
