5.45x39 reloading

Hi everyone, I am going to reload 5,45x39, I use resized .221 bullets,
cases reformed from .222 Remington and stell military cases reformed and
primed with 5005 Rws berdan primers, I have no idea of loading data, I use
.69 grs bullets and I have supposed, but not yet tested, 17 grs of Norma
200, any idea of this load? any idea of what happen to steel cases?

Sir, before you have an accident leading to your injury or death, please go to a gun/reloading store and talk with the people there. Find some PUBLISHED (as in book form) reloading data, don't just "suppose" a load. Research it and build it up slowly.

Also, others may disagree with me, and it is thier right to do so, but I wouldn't reccomend using steel cases. IMHO, you'd be better off getting some 7.62x39mm brass cases and reforming those.

Or you could probably save some time and hospital bills and just buy some Wolf 5.45x39mm or equivelant.

I never have seen data for 5,45x39 and I am sorry but gun/reloading store are more ignorant than me, if you have some data for the cartridge this help, concerning steel cases, I never have used it and I am asking possible problems I could find
