Reloading reworked 223 cases to 7.62X25

Postby wmmarsh » Fri Feb 03, 2012 11:54 pm

The case rim dimensions are slightly less for 223 than the factory ammo cases. I have found a 223 size shell
holder gives better sizing and loading than the the 7.62 shell holder. Most 223 cases have thicker brass neck
and can be crimped too tightly on the bullet if run back fully through the resize die. Check the seating tension with
your bullet puller occasionally.Short cased bullets with exposed lead nose seem particularly suseptable, they may leave
the case behind. Dont ask how I know!

easier to buy boxer brass for 7.62x25, i tried making mauser brass from 223 casings, found brass neck too thick and hard to load
