I have had several 221FB rifles and have used RL-7, LG & AA1680, all with good results. Best results have been 1680 for me with 40 gr bullets. Loaded 18.9 grs in my Cooper but now loading 20.2 grs in...

I spec all my small cartridge reamers as zero freebore anymore. As was said, you probably won't get zero anyway. Later, if you decide you want to shoot strictly 40's and you don't like how deep they...

I have become a fan of the 22 Spitfire which is similar to the 22 Garin, got 3 of them now. I decided to go that way after discovering that JGS had a reamer in stock that had a 28 degree shoulder and...

The annealed case looks about right to me. If you had heated them up too much that blue line would be at the rim.

I use them for Hornet and K-Hornet. Just don't get down on it without a case inserted and they do pretty well. I think they are especially good for consistent seating force when using unturned brass...

Kenbro, you could probably adapt that system to foxes by dividing by 2? I'm like pertnear in thinking the Conetrol rings are pretty elegant. I still have a set from many years ago that I had on a...

You can do that or turn the necks a little, which would be my preference to get an ideal fit.

Based on my experience with the 22 Spitfire in both a Howa Mini and a CZ527, I would think either one would chamber the TCM smoothly as a single shot and maybe as a repeater also. Remember the...

I have used it in 22-250AI with 55 gr bullets with good success. Al Nyhus uses it in a 220 Swift AI and says it is relatively easy on barrels. I'm playing with it in a 6-250AI these days but that is...

Thanks for sharing this JD. I also bought a pair, they are a little smaller than I thought they would be but will work just fine for most of the uses I envision.

That is a nice looking annealer. IIRC there was a homemade version on accurateshooter.com a few years ago and this looks like a more refined commercial version. After looking at the video I would be...

In an article I read about the 20-223AI years ago N135 was recommended as a good match so it should work well in the 20TAC with 35-40gr bullets also. H4895 works real well, maybe the IMR version too...

IIRC they use R700 bases. I put Burris Tactical bases on mine which gives you a weaver/pic type setup and then use Burris Signature rings.

Instead of a Hornet based cartridge you might consider a 22 Spitfire/5.7 Johnson made from M1 Carbine brass. Rim size is very close to Hornet. Very simple to make the brass, just anneal new carbine...

I have a Rem 799 in 22 Hornet which has the Zastava action. I have shot it a little and worked the trigger a little and it is an OK rifle. I would describe it as a loose CZ. Accuracy was about 3/4"...

That looks like a good load on target and that load of LG should give good performance, too. Glad you have found a little magic.

Sorry to hear about your parents, always a tough time in life. My thinking parallels what Ray said. The RC would be the best choice for forming or any HD application. I would never use a turret press...

Think so Eddie, and there is also "Thoroughclean" sold by Bullet Central, which is IOSSO blended with a solvent. Works quite well.
