    I lied. Anymore I find inletting a stock more difficult than chambering a barrel, but I got it done today. Just need to trim some action screws and bed it!

    Nice Write-up. I lust after the stainless Minis you folk get there, but I guess I should be happy that the plain Jane complete steel barreled actions are USD$220 here. What twist rate does Howa offer there for .223 Remington?

    .223 WSSM with a 1:7 twist SS Palma Krieger. Testing first for max velocity fun then it'll get bobbed to 23" from 30" and throated for 80-95 grain projectiles. I know WSSMs are not very popular, but it's short, fits in a 10-round short-action...

    A few months ago when there was a 30% rebate on the A&D FX-120i scale, the "auto-trickler" and the "auto-thrower" I bought in. It isn't an inexpensive setup, but today my time is worth more than money after having jiggled stick powders through a...

    IME it's a non-issue with proper projectile selection and enough neck tension, just like every other cartridge. A crimp changed nothing for me regarding velocity or accuracy and the the most setback without a crimp I could ever measure was ~.010",...

    I would verify that you even need a crimp for your particular load. I have never needed one (though I have the lee collet design) when using suitable projectiles with appropriate neck tension.

    I have a trust and a few Form-1 stamps. If you go with a can for cast projectiles, make sure it's something either stainless, or titanium, comes apart and can be soaked in solvent or mild caustic agent (CLR/vinegar/peroxide etc.). It will make...
