Anyone have experience with either H335 or CFE223 powder for a 223 Rem bolt gun? I’m thinking of working up a load with one of these powders. I’m using a 52 grain bullet and a 1:9″ twist barrel. Any advice would be valued.
The bottom screw is the creep set. It’s utilizes a 5/64th Allen key and the lock nut is turned by a 1/4″ wrench. Tightening the screw decreases the creep. I made quarter turn adjustments until I got the creep where I liked it. Then I dripped a drop of tread lock liquid on the ends and now it’ll set over nig…[Read more]

Lots of 223 in steal as well. I do find brass 308 or 30’06 occasionally. There used to be a lot more brass on the ground ten years ago, than now. …[Read more]
I found a 3-9x 32mm Bushnell Sportsview at a local gun shop in their use case for $20, so I bought it. The glass is clear. The windage turret is a missing graduations, but I don’t think that is important as long as it holds zero.
I’ve already mounted and bore sited it on my deer rifle. Just waiting for the next available day to test it…[Read more]
