    I just got done making my first 40 rounds of .223 reloads! :D
    The first 20 I just used my bullet seating die, the second 20 I used my factory crimp die at the end. I want to shoot both lots from my AR to see if there is a noticeable amount of accuracy.
    All are loaded with 25.4g of H33 and topped with a Remington 55g FMJ.

    Wish me luck!

    Took the kids out shooting today. Brought my reloads to try out. I shot the first 10 to make sure they are safe. I was surprised that they all work as well as they did. Quite accurate too! Brought the brass home to reload again.

    Congrats & welcome to the reloading community.

    And... did you fire five from each batch?

    I shot 6 from each batch, both seemed to shoot fine. I am not much of a rifleman using open sights, so I can not comment on accuracy. I got all 12 on paper, but only one in the ring. for me, that is pretty good for 60 yard open sight shooting for now..will work on it.:)
