Re: Reloading for a pump .223

I do not believe there is enough recoil in a 223 to make crimping necessary.
I have owned a Rem 7615 in 223 for several years and have yet to crimp a case .

    Hairtrigger, what kind of success have you had with the 7615? I bought mine in 2009 but I really have not done much with it.

    Thanks for all of the replies. I am using RCBS FL dies for my .223 loads. I have Hornady dies for my 7-08 and was given a really old set of Savage dies for my .308.

    Again, I am a newbie, but so far, I like the Hornady dies best, just because they have the sliding bullet guide that centers them in the seating die. This is helpful for getting non boat-tail bullets started.

    the 7615 is 1 of my goto woodchuck guns. No problem hitting woodchucks at 200 yards with it. If you crimp a bullet without a crimp groove you deform the bullet
