Easing The Effects Of A Crash

i read your "Briefing Room" editorial you mentioned that, "the precious metal of choice may be lead", i agree, that is why i have about 500 pounds of lead, 250 lbs. of .999 pure lead, the rest is reclaimed lead from shooting ranges, then you say, "...a simple pot, ladle and mold, bullets can be made over a campfire"

my question about this is, do you have a recommendation for a cast .224 bullet ? and a decent load for a .223 Rem./5.56mm NATO to be fired from an AR-15/M4 type rifle ?

could you run an article in a future issue about making, and loading for this round and other popular calibers ?

Thank You,

I don't cast .224 bullets but rather recycle .22LR cases into jackets for .223 Rem bullets using Corbin swage dies. It's not for everyone, but I have saved hundreds, probably thousands of dollars over the years.
