    probably about 60/hr was my turn over time, did parts during the week, filled them with powder, seated the bullets, and crimped them today :cool:

    have a lot more to do, but going to shoot these tomorrow :o

    anyone on the fents, it is stupid simple to reload. you can turn out higher rates, i was in no worry

    put the rounds in the case bullet down. It's easier to remove them and also easier to check for high primers.

    l4zy, I have the Frankfort arsenal tumbler and it seems to work well. If you are ordering one, get the one that comes with the filter - well worth the time savings

    .
    You pulled the noob move and placed them in there ass backwards. :bigthumb:

    Now the "moment of truth". Your reloading sequence is going to flash in front of you about a a million times before you finally pull the trigger.

    first I was like :eek4:
    then I was like:squint:
    Then it was like :cool:
    now I'm like :mamoru:

    :bigthumb: go get em tiger.

    the heavier bullets are 224 the lighter ones are 223. IIRC 55 gr and lighter is usually 223 dia and 62 gr and heavier is 224.

    I'm in the exact same boat as you caliber-wise :o.

    10/22
    WASR-2
    G19

    What guns do you have? I was about to splurge and get a reloading setup but I'm going to buy an AR first while I still can and I need a new computer. I'm saving all my 9mm brass though.

    The yar way is to use the billionty dollar dillon swager tool. The cheap way is to get something like a primer pocket reamer. I use the lyman and chuck it in the drill. Pick as your budget allows, and yes .223 uses a .224 bullet You won't see many .223 bullets out there, the only application for those to my knowledge is pretty old .22 hornet guns.

    (yar has to put a dollar in my tip jar to buy me dillon stuff for that knowledge ;) )

    those aren't much fun. the better ones are a rotary type where you dump the tumbler contents into the container and you rotate it around to clear it of everything not metal. it's faster and there's less of a hassle.

    well, for accuracy you are going to want heavier grain bullets, like 77g. it will shoot 55g but might pull them apart :o

    i shoot 55g for killing paper, but if i will do longer distance shooting, i will need to switch to a heavier bullet. 1:7 will rip 55g apart

    or is it it might not stabilize 55g as well as a heavier?
