I just ordered a bunch of stuff to start reloading for my 5.56 rifle and midwayusa
didnt really say .223 or 5.56 too much..............they used .22 as the way to start ordering
and I ended up ordering the above...............Will these be ok to shoot out of my rifle
as its a 5.56 Nato rated............224 diameter sounds larger then .223, and I had heard
that 5.56 is a little bigger then .223, but I just want to make certain????????????????
I have about 1500 once fired LC 05 brass (nato) and some winchester brass too. Im buying some
dies, but the powder and cci primers wanted a 25 dollar hasmat charge, so I will look at local shop
to see what there prices are.
I was going to order Hodges VARGET but they were out of stock. Then I saw H335, and was told
that is like original 5.56 military powder, and then BL (c)-2 was mentioned, but could not find,
and H4198 and H322 were all mentioned as being good. Any suggestions for the cleanest for
55 grain bullets???? Thanks for info and help!!!
If you don't know the difference between 223 and 5.56 or if 224 dia is the right size you need to do alot of reading before you try to reload anything. I am not trying to be a smart %#$ but this basic info that can be found in a lot of places
