I have a full case of Remington 223 55 gr FMJ ammo. FMJ ammo is outlawed by our coyote group because it skips accross the frozen farm fields. My plan was to to pull these FMJ bullets, weigh the powder charge, neck size the cases and then load a 55 gr soft point bullet on top of the same charge of the same powder that I emptied out of the cases.
I made mention of doing this at the gun shop yesterday and got negative responses.
The design of the two bullets is slightly different but the B.C. is virtually the same!
The two guys at the gun shop warned against doing this but could not give me a good reason why?
Your thoughts ?
