Need advice with CFE223

Recommended Posts

ok, so I worked up some loads of 55gr FMJBT with H335, with the highest load being 25gr and got an average of 3002fps with a 22fps spread out of a 20" .223 wylde barrel. There were absolutely no signs of over pressure but I couldn't judge the timing since I had a brass catcher attached.

So the question is. Should I be happy with this load or should I try going up a bit to get higher speeds?

 

I also loaded some 68gr hornady HPBT with Varget (have a pound I need to use up) and got an average 2876fps with 26gr compressed, with no overpressure signs.

If the load is producing repeatable accuracy that you are okay with, then leave it be.  If you think you can do better, then push the envelope.  Was the highest load you worked up at max according to the reloading manual you are using?

+1 if you are happy with the results no need wasting more powder.

    • So, if the “well-intentioned” NJ politicians theoretically outlaw, ban and confiscate every single gun, will that change anything? Dating back to before the 10 Commandments murder is illegal. Hurting and or assaulting someone without justification is illegal.  
    • It's sunny out this morning. Could be tropospheric ducting?  Either that there was power issues at NJ101.5's station and they had to fire up the generators?  Who knows.
    • i know i've written about 101.5 before. you guys know i listen to it in the am otw work.    so this morning, at warwick and atlantic aves, it faded.....was fading into "jack and diane" song. couldn't tell what station. while stopped at the light, i couldn't hear 101.5 at all. as i took off, it got back to 101, but very choppy. when the newer looking mazda6 that was in back of me caught up at the next light, it was gone again. when i left from that light, same thng...choppy, and fading back n forth. it continued that way till i crossed the freeway, and as i passed the swim club on warwick, it went to just static. turned onto upland way in haddonfield, and just like someone flipped a switch, 101.5 came back crystal clear.  not really sure what to make of that. at first since it seemed worse when that mazda was close, i thought possibly something from that car was causing interference, but he went onto the freeway, and it continued. it doesn't make sense that this station would go wonky in just that 2 or 3 mile strip......
    • As noted, it's a standard engineering issue of "how much, how often" . . . I had a BMW 530 that would ping with anything less than 93 octane gas.  If one of my kids put a tank of regular in it, the pistons didn't burn right through.  I'd start topping the tank off with some premium until the pinging stopped.  There was never any damage done.   At the same time, I just don't see any reason for +P much less +P+ . . . My father gave me a bucket of .38SP a year ago and I unloaded all of the +P rounds but I was putting them through an old Colt revolver.
    • I read the article on my wife's iPad but couldn't copy the text out. Does anyone have access to copy here? https://www.nj.com/politics/2021/11/from-taxes-to-guns-to-abortion-heres-what-to-expect-from-gov-murphys-second-term.html
