Not in Alpine. Reloading is half the fun of shooting. :)

For any auto you MUST full length resize. To fail to do so will cause a ton of problems. None of my ar's will run with neck sized ammo

What kgpcr said. As a recovering varmint hunter and current 3-Gun shooter I have loaded thousands and thousands of 223, and neck sizeing is for bolt guns. I have had great luck with 24.4grs of AA2230, Winchester small rifle primers, and 55gr fms, but start low and work up to it.

If you want some once fired Brass I can supply you with some!


I probably got 300 or so now and I shoot about 200-400 every weekend so I will have a steady supply.

You pay shipping and it is yours!

Thanks for the offer but we've been collecting brass for about a month and a half. The local Border Patrol uses our range for practice and they leave all thier brass. Must have a 4K .223 and about 6K of .40 .
The wife threatens me everytime I go to the range now "If you bring back one more of those big bags full of brass and leave them in the car I'm thowing them out"

Mind if I take you up on that offer? I'm building my AR in the next month or so and getting 500-1000 cases would be excellent.

Shoot me an email at: [email protected]
or if you use IM: numinous01

My zip code is 14127 (just outside of Buffalo, NY) if you want to figure out shipping.
