Cold outside.....Reload

It's just to cold for me to be outside at the range......And this is the time I'll catch up on my AR loadings. I like these once pulled bullets from "Hy-techammo......."Elcheapo" 62gr.

I go outside and cast when it's cold. 10lbs of 750deg lead keeps the immediate vicinity somewhat warm.
M855 pulled bullets do very well in my 1in 7" Colt. They're about the only bullet that does well in that rifle,however.

I mentioned reloading during the winter once because what else was there to do and the reply was there is ONE other thing they could think of.

So you are using Winchester brass with no crimp. How about the powder charge?
