200 Swift? Is that a 220 necked down to .204?

That has to be a barn burner.

Must mean 220, just a typo.

That should be a great rifle, with a little load development I am sure they will go in the same hole. I could use that rifle right now for woodchucks.

Have fun and welcome aboard.

Yep 220 swift! Typo! I am shooting factory ammo today and tomorrow just to work on sighting my scope in. I will reload this ammo with nosler varmageddon 55 grains. That will probably be the max bullet size since the twist is 1/14. Once I bench rest it I could shoot it 1/2 inch for sure. Glad to be part of the forum. New to reloading but an old pro at handgun and rifle target shooting. I read a story about some pro just filling up 220 cases to top and seating bullets??? Crazy. I will stick to my manuals!

Ha! I had read that years back in regard to reloading, it made me bust a gut laughing as to me rifle reloading has never been easy. There is a lot of great stuff here which will help you, it has me.
