Josh Hawkes: So i resized a bunch of 223 and the neck was sized down to .215, the
bullets dont even seat. In the die the expander seems to be .223 but doesnt
increase the neck size. I lowered the pin but it didnt change anything
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!
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?
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.
NWoutdoorProductions: Ok cool thanck are u posting a vid on that load
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
gary needham: what scope do you use with your savage edge 223 rifle?
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: 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
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
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
