    Loaded 5 rounds of 223 to test my load and took 'em to the range today to test fire. I don't have a case trimmer yet so I just sorted through my brass to find the ones that were between 1.750-1.760.

    My load was

    Accurate 2230, wideners 55gr FMJ
    22.8gr (1.57 disk on the lee powder disk measure)
    2.230 OAL

    Fired like a charm, clean and spot on accurate.

    I am no officially able to load two different calibers lol, time to go crank out a few hundred 223 rounds and finish off my titegroup
