Finally got an order of 12 gauge pre-primed empty kraft paper shotshells shipped to me after being on back order since last December. This type of hull paper was new to me so I though I would load up a couple of boxes to see how they load. Came out pretty good, next will be to fire a few and see how they eject and if they are good for another reload and if so how many.

I took an old RCBS rusty powder drop apart and soaked it in Evaporust. It really cleaned up. Give the 650 a little PM. Feeling accomplished.

Don't laugh... but that's a 222 Rem. with 60 gr. nosler partitions stuck in them. 23.5 gr of Varget, and I have 3 charges of Benchmark also ready to test with it. Benchmark and Varget got the 63 gr sierra SMP to stabilize last year and I took a nice doe with it. I'm hoping that the same powders prove effective pushing the partitions.

I did the first actual press work I have done since I moved today. Finally have the presses setup and back working, took most of the morning just to find where I had put a few critical items. All I did was decapped and washed 37 6.5 CM rounds for a guy at work, but it sure felt good to have the handle in my hand again! May go back down and FL size those and get them ready to load. Going to put some 129gr Hornady Interlocked SP in those cases for him to hunt with. Have not loaded for his rifle yet (Savage) but I have a good load for that bullet in my FIL's RPR, hopefully they will perform well in the Savage. I have a good bit of 223 that needs to be gone through soon, but I realized today I am all but out of 55gr pills, wouldnt have guessed 6000 of them would have went so fast-- under a year.

You'll like the partitions. Are they flat base or boat tail? What is the twist rate on the barrel? And how long is the barrel?

No such thing as a partition boat tail.

How right you are AU, all the partitions are flat base designed.

The 222 traditionally has a 1:14 twist, as my rifle does, and it has a 22" barrel. Most deuce gurus will tell you that a 55 grainer is about all she'll stabilize. I shoot the flat base sierra 63 gr. semipoints well in it, and those noslers are trying to behave, but I can tell she's struggling with it. You have to really send them hot to increase the RPMs to ensure they stabilize. I have yet to get anything but a round hole in the target at 100 yds, but the groups are 1.5 MOA (and will get the occasional 2" or 3" flyer), instead of 1/2 MOA groups the 55s and 50's typically produce.

I have been trying some sierra 55 gr. gamekings, which mushroom instead of fragment. I got some decent groups today, and I may just stick with them for green field hunting. They are used in 220 swift and 22-250 chamberings quite a bit, but also expand and mushroom within the 222 and 223's more modest velocity ranges. It's always fun to taylor a round to a gun... and it's even more fun to do it with an obscure cartridge.

Sized, deprimed, head stamp sorted, and swaged about 3 gallons of 5.56 brass that I have collected from factory loads over the years. Now I just needs those 75gr Gold Dots to show up in the mail.
