    Reloaded my first box of .22-250 today. Used the Lee Ultimate 4-die set, full length resize (new brass). First time using Lee's 'factory crimp' die; like it.

    This was my first time reloading a bottle-neck case since ~1980. Not quite the same process as for straight wall handgun cartridges. The powder kind of hides in the .22-250 case; you have to look close for it when you're in the bullet seating step. And, I had to relearn how to guide the bullet into the seating die.

    When the job is done, the cartridges are pretty though. ;)

    22-250 is one of the calibers I reload for. I like to reload these, once you get used to working them they are a joy. The only thing I like better is shooting them. :melikey:
