i use RL15 for my 5.56. hasnt let me down yet

pretty much all the mold makers have a some sort of mold in .225. they are sometimes limited run items though. saeco comes to mind there. RCBS, lyman, and lee all show a vareity (albeit a small one) of 225 molds most of which are in stock at either midway or grafs.

Nice post. I have a question though. Can i use 225? I have always used 224 bullets for my loads will 225 work ok? I know it might sound funny but i am always looking to save money as my AR is a hungry little devil..lol

cast bullets are usually a thouandth or two over whar jacekted bullets are. this allows them to swage erfectly to size if you run them through a luber sizer and crimp on a gas check. if you run them naked like i do they just swage themselves to the rifling.
