Don't know about the Bee.

I use Berry's .38 boxes for the .17VR.
They are plenty loose but, the height is good.

Couldn’t find any I liked and settled on NTN R-50 with the insert (bullet down)

And I think a slip top NTN E 50-45.

I use those both for 22 jet and my 17 WS

When I decided to form up a bunch of brass for my .218 Mashburn Bee and my .17 Ackley Hornet I wanted to get some boxes that fit and were all the same. I went with the Berrys 404 which is a .223 bottom with a shorter top cover so it is shorter than a regular .223 box. They work great for both the .17 AH and the MB though I do have to put the Bee rounds down in the box.

Thank you for the replies... Couple issues, the box styles mentioned earlier the COL on my loaded rounds is too tall to fit and the rim is slighlty larger for a bullet up position and are hard to fit especially in the corners.... hmmmm :-(

Which "box styles mentioned earlier" are you referring to?
