    Unfortunately I haven't bought anything for quite a while. I was just wondering if they were any more difficult to load than a .223, etc. because they look kinda' small.

    They are tiny along with the bullets.

    Most of the brass I had was crimped primers that you have to cut out. The rim is so small that swaging expands it.

    Then there is the coating.....

    The lovex I have works great for me. It's the same as shooters world auto pistol and comparable to aa5. I've also used w231 and titegroup. Honestly any pistol powder should work fine. I liked titegroup because the charge weights were low so I'd get more per round.

    Loaded 9, broke a rocker arm, replaced a rocker arm, loaded more 9, and worked on the 223 processor a bit in the background.

    I believe my mild 115 fmjs were at 4.0 and my XTPs were at 4.8, all loaded to 1.125". I bet with a 120 you'd be good at 3.8-4.2 at the same length. Test the length in your gun first. Chamber a round from your magazine and make sure it goes fully into battery. Don't just drop it in your barrel. Test a couple and double check that load data on hodgdon website or in a manual. Don't take my word for it.

    "loaded 9" - thought you only loaded 9 rounds before it broke. The. Realized the name and figured you probably loaded a lot more than 9 rounds!
