Re: 221 Fireball

One more question,
At what point in the process are you annealing?

Thanks
John

Re: 221 Fireball

I anneal before I run it through the sizer for the first time. It is the very first step in the process.

Re: 221 Fireball

I have two .221FBs that are to be used for prairie dogs. Am experimenting with 32gr, 39gr, and 40gr pills. I can get >3000fps out of the 10.5" barrelled XP100, and >3500fps out of the 24" barreled rifle using L'il Gun. The pistol is noisy, but the rifle is pretty quiet.
