To me reloading 223 is not about saving money but is about tailoring the loads to my rifles.To me that is one of the best things about that caliber. You can usually find ammo at a decent price. I don't reload for .223 for that reason. I just don't seem to save enough money to make it worth my time.
No doubt. My buddy and reloading mentor is an older guy from my church. His deal is taking his Savage bolt action to the range and shooting maybe 10 rounds at 100 yards. His bullets are very lightly crimped and you don't push them in with the bolt. You ease them in with your finger tip and then close the bolt. His goals is always 5 shots under a dime. I have never done it, even with his gun. I have put 5 under a nickel a few times.To me reloading 223 is not about saving money but is about tailoring the loads to my rifles.
I had an ALG QMS on my last rifle it's a great trigger and it can be had around $50I have an ALG QMS and I have to say its the best "mil spec" trigger on an AR Ive shot. I dont have an immense amount of years behind an AR but from my experience I like it compared to others Ive shot.
