Well I just made up some .223 loads. 50 gr soft-points and 26 grains of BL-C(2), COL was 2.195". Everything went well except it took three tries to get the seating die where I wanted it (I assume there is better way than guess and check?) Also the crimp die I just put maybe a 1/16th down the case neck. Wasn't to sure where to crimp them. They didn't have cannelure or whatever its called. The die was Lee Factory Crimp.

Sounds good. For seating, I start high and come down a quarter twist at a time until I get the OAL right. Make sure you track your data, so you can remember your favorite loads.

Yep, my boxes I picked up to keep them separated while loading had some cards with primer/power/gr/bullet and I plan on filling them out for each load I try.
