Or, I'll just keep reloading, because I'm doing fine and have decent people to learn new things from. Not guys who act pompous and tell you to quit the first mistake you make, trying to make themselves feel superior.
You still don't get it.
.223 Rem IS A HIGH PRESSURE ROUND.
50,000 PSI is nothing to be trifled with when you don't know what the f*ck you're doing.
Do yourself a favor - buy and use factory ammo. The life you save may well be your own.
No, it's not. The problem had nothing to do with pressure. I knew it then and I know that now. They weren't high pressure rounds. Knowing now that the issue was just the shoulder, it would have been fine. Experienced loaders I know say the same thing. But I didn't do it at the time because I didn't know the exact issue. There's a difference between not knowing the actual issue and trying to force it work and knowing the exact issue and knowing what the effects of it will cause.

Mil spec trigger which I believe MM may have polished up a bit.
