I think most people enjoyed my previous post "Bullet Casting Photos" so I decided to put this out for everyone to see. Freshly reloaded .223 with cast, and FMJ bullets. These are the FMJ rounds. All of my brass is either Lake City or Remington. The FMJ bullets are military surplus from back when you could actually find them that my uncle has stock piled. I pay him .05 each for my personal reloads. I use BLC-2 powder, and CCI primers. Total cost per round reusing my brass is about .08 cents ! These are cast rounds using recycled lead from work. Unfortunetly we only have a single cavity mold for .223 so it does take some time to mass produce these. If anybody knows if they make a 6 cavity mold for .223, and can give me some info I would greatly appreicate it !! We load these with IMR powder and gas checks. This slows the FPS down on .223 by about 800 fps which decreases your ability to keep tight groups at over 100 yards, but performs flawlessy at around 75 yards which is where I do most of my range shooting. Total cost per round around .03 cents.
