    but you might want to try and do it yourself, if you shoot lots of .223 invest in a single stage lee loader and you should be good to go.

    components might be a bit scarce though, armscor is purposely creating scarcity for this particular round.

    prohibitive pricing, low volume availability of components, etc.

    asian_glockster, if you can fire an M16 full-auto, man you must be wealthy. Those rounds are expensive! anybody you shoot should be honored.

    How about the people who shoots M16 in three gun matches diyan sa atin. where do they get the ammo? Sa scalawag na pulis at AWOL na militar? (just joking) ;f So where do they get it? Thats one of the reasons that made me think twice to get an M16 back home. May baril ka nga eh madalang pa sa patak ng ulan ang suply ng bala. Aba eh daig pa tayo ng mga bata ni Ka Roger sa bundok lagi silang may "Fresh" suply ng ammo ( as seen in "The Correspondent").:soap:

    If the rebels do not import their ammo whether legal or illegal, surely somebody local must be supplying them in bulk quantities.

    yes, I do consider it but the problem is how to get the components, primers and powders available locally are only suited for pistols. I have a lee loader. I've been at twinpines robinsons galleria and they reload 7.62 x 39 rds. Buti pa ang bala ng AK may nagrereload.:(

    No sir, that's why I'm looking for someone who reloads 5.56mm ammo.
    Ang mahal po kasi. Bihira po ako mag full auto. hindi po kasi ako makatama pag full auto

    I think Stronghand sells 223 heads. And if I re-call may VV-120 and 130 din siya. Small rifle primer meron din sya because I know someone who likes rifle primer for his pistol. Now all you need is the die, i.e. kung nag re-reload ka.

    hi everyone.;Q

    i guess im the newest guy here. just registered few days ago.

    to asian_glockster:

    you can have your shells reloaded at TRUE WEIGHT. the last time i had mine it was P11.00 each. lower compared to amscor factory ammo which is P16.00. if interested in reloading it yourself, components are also available (FMJ 5.56 heads, powder & primer). Stronghand has reloading components as well but thier prize is considerably much higher. heads are imported (Hornady i guess) and Vhita Vouri powder is more expensive than most powder available in the market.:)

    Maraming Salamat po.

    Matagal na po ako bumibili ng components ng bala sa truweight at nagpapareload rin ako.

    They do not openly advertise or announce that truweight reloads 5.56mm ammunition.

    I use a Lee progressive reloader. If I decide to go into reloading 5.56mm shells, I need to order dies in the US, if the cost of reloading is very much cheaper and feasible.

    medyo mas maselan daw yata ang reloading ng .223 unlike typical handgun ammo reloading...individual case lubing, checking for
    case OAL and neck dimension, thorough case checking, removing
    primer crimp, etc.. konting error daw e KB!!!

    matagal ko na din kasi binabalak magreload o magpa-reload sa
    truweight.... parang ang laki kasi ng risk...

    hindi naman nila sasagutin kung sumabog M16 ko diba?;P

    removing primer crimp? - Paano yung operation na yon? Hindi naman yata kasama sa crimping ang primer.

    Its safer to roll your own then have it someone do it for you.

    http://www.gswagner.com/bigreloading/ppswage/ppswage.html dahil halos lahat ng available brass for 5.56 ay military origin...nangangailan na alisin muna o i-swage ang primer pockets nito... pero yung sa armscor .223 brass ay hindi naka-crimp... would you trust armscor .223 brass;Q

    5.56 - military nga pala yon. Ok, got you now.

    Since Trueweight reloads 223, what brasses are they using? Perhaps homer_m can shed some light. BTW, welcome to the forum.

    Is the sale of reloading components (brass, powder, bullets, primers) regulated in RP? How about the equipments?

    The sale of press is supposed to be regulated. The dies and other tools you can just go ahead and buy. Components are not regulated.
