Longtime resident Lady Liberty, age 236 was struck by a stolen Chevy Volt last night along the interstate. The driver and passengers, illegally in the US from their native countries across the world, then dragged Ms. Liberty into the woods and brutally sodomized her before heading to the local polling place where they registered using the names of Supreme Court justices and voted without being challenged by UN poll watchers.
Authorities found them around the corner, each with a large supply of newly legalized recreational marijuana, getting high. They were taken into custody and released a short time later with a kiss on each cheek and a prepaid gift card for WaWa to handle the munchies.
Ms. Liberty is in extremely critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit, and doctors are very wary of her chances of recovery. A crowd of zombie-like citizens are already gathered at the Liberty residence, preparing to loot it of valuables when she succumbs to her injuries or the Death Panel declares her worthless and pulls the plug.
I really need to stop watching youtube vids on reloading. It's getting expensive. So now that I know there's a doohickey for measuring ogive length, I have to have one. And a small base die, because not reloading for 5.56. I dunno if my 223 Wylde chamber will like 223 sized brass. I dunno why but the guy on the video sez I need to do that, even though external case dimensions are the same for 223/556.
I am once again referring you to my post summarizing a conversation I had with a lawyer from Nappen's office. NJ is actively prosecuting people who have manufactured firearms out of state and then brought them in state.
Your interpretation of the statutes may be "correct", but chances are high that if your manufactured firearm comes to the attention of the NJ criminal justice system you will be prosecuted.
I'm going to call again and see if any of the cases were settled or went to court and if there is any case law at this point.
Looking at what Hodgon posts for 115gr and CFE-Pistol it seems like you are a little on the light side.
Lead round nose starting loads are 4.9gr and they post some hollow points with starting loads at 5.3 gr.
I would use the HP data as a start at minimum load and ladder up from there with a chrono. Good luck and stay safe.
