T3x Varmint .223 – What is your OAL for 69gr Matchking Hollowpoints?
I made a dummy round using twice-fired PMC .223 brass. I ran it twice through a RCBS small base resizing die. The base of the die was touching the shell plate on my Dillon and the handle “cammed-over”. Trimmed to 1.750. Seated the 69gr. Matchking to 2.235 with a light crimp.
The bolt will not close. Tried a medium crimp. Still won't close.
What OAL works for you folks with 69gr. Matchking Hollowpoints?
If you have to load these bullets shorter, how much do you reduce your powder charge? I have CFE 223, Benchmark, and 8208 to work with.
