    Does any one here have one of the Winchester black shadow rifles chambered in the 223 super short magnums? And if so how do you like it and is it accurate. I have heard the is a feeding problem with the short fat cases is that true or false.
    Thanks Dennis

    I don't know about feeding problems. I think Winchester claimed to fix any of those with their "controlled push feed" bolt design. As far as the cartridge goes, I don't really know anything about it either, other than it's a barrel burner. Hornady tested using reformed .300 WSM cases and found significant throat erosion after about 750 rounds.
