Re: Loading cast Lee 160 grain

I've had good luck with Lee 230 feeding, haven't check accuracy yet. Wouldn't need to shoot more than 50-75 yards

Loading cast Lee 160 grain

I'm loading Lee 160 grain bullets to 1.82 OAL. This is at the chimp line on the bullet, H110 15 grain bullet maybe just touches powder. Is that too short? I have loaded 230 grain to 2.095 OAL, they work great. I bought some Winchester 220 grain they are 2.14 OAL

Re: FTF is primed brass from American Marksman

I moved the bullet more out of the casing to 2.15 OAL that seems to have fixed the problem. 20 loaded 20 fired!

300 blkout supersonic cast?

I got a Lee 115 grain mold but they are way too tiny for the ARs. Does anyone know the length of Lee's 150 and 160 grain?

cast Lee 115 bullet AOL

Ok loading 230 they seem to be right(still testing)
Also loading 115 but info from Lee says Min AOL is 2.05 for 115, at that length the bullet won't even be in the case?
