Took my new CZ .221 Fireball to the range this morning, to try out some loads that might work for PD shooting. I think I like this little rifle. This load is some 40 grain bullets doing around 3500fps, pretty good for less than 16 grains of powder.

50 grain bullet doing about 3100

I REALLY like this load, it has some serious potential. If I hadn't goofed up the last shot, it would have been under .3", as it was, it was almost identical to the other, .684" vs. .682", shot another group at .700". It's a keeper, I think. Yep, five shot groups:D.

Oh yeah, although the storebought stuff is pretty good, at $16 a box, no way, no how, would I buy more than ONE box of the stuff. I buy unprimed brass from any one of the mail-order places, and just stuff them myself. I bought the box of ammo shown, just to have something to play with, until the components came in. Still got half the factory stuff in the box!
