So I have sat down to do my first ever reloads and I have hit a bit of an impass.
I am trying to load .223 with barnes tsx 55gr. The load data says gap from rifling lands to bullet should be .050 or 1.27mm. When I put a bullet in a empty cartirige and seat it by putting it in the rifle and closing the bolt, I get an OAL of 60.02, more or less. Max OAL according to the die set is 57.4mm, this means that unless I am mistaken if I seat to maximum OAL I will have a 2.62mm/.103" jump to the rifling.
Rifle is a Zastava .223
I am probably doing something wrong, help please!
Also, one cartrige the primer didnt go quite flush, any suggestions on if I should rework or just dispose of that one.
