I had no problem getting the bator cast bullet to shoot well in my .223. Worked up a couple of lower power red dot loads, one with gas check and one without. Both were good enough, accurate enough, quiet enough that I pretty much retired my old Ruger 10/22. At the time .22lr was costing a dime ea, if you could find them.
I could easily reload .223 for less than that, with better performance and more punch so it was a simple decision for me.
3-5 grains of Red Dot below a 55 gr cast bullet makes a very nice quiet shooting load. All would easily do minute of squirrel head at least as far as .22lr would reach.
Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
