Hi all, Just after a little info if anyone can help.
As a starting point, I have purchased sierra 52gr match bullets, cci primers, once fired hornady also some remington brass and varget powder ( these are for target use ) I dont have a manual yet but am eager to have a go, so have found info on the web and a mate has found me other data from his manual. I will later also be loading for 40gr blitzking, 55 Vmax, 55gn SP. I want to later load for these and other various weights for shooting targets, fox/vermin and roe deer.
However, I am unsure about oal ...... I have measured my rifle, a CZ 527 in .223 with a 1 in 12 twist and using a oal gauge its 2.247.
Data found is showing oal at 2.250 does that mean I cannot load to this length, as its 3thou over my own chamber ? and would it be dangerous to use this load with a shorter oal ?
Also data for various loads are showing, for example, an oal of 2.175 .... am I ok to load at longer oal, say for example 10, 15, 20, 30 thou under my own rifles oal of 2.247.
Sorry for going on a bit ..... and thanks for reading so far.
