Default 5,6mm old bullets,

I have some old German 5,6mm bullets and found that they are right at 71.4 grains. They are designed for roe deer, and had a good loyal following if my memory isn't too fuzzy.

Any idea on the old .227 bullets? They actually mic in at 0.2265"

I think they ran me 27 marks for 100 ct. back in 97. Just curious to see if I could use them up. Sizied them down by just turning them through a high speed drill at about 8500rpm. It was really surprisingly easy to take off 0.0025".

I checked the resized ones against the 70gr Speer SP, until they all were the same diameter and gave identical resistance when seating.

Using the 70gr Speer data, I ended up with some unfired Speer loads using H322 for my short TC barrel. I used to shoot it with a load of 19gr. of H322 and never chronographed them as I didn't care to, and didn't have a chrono way back when.


Update

Yesterday I took a range trip and chronograph the 70gr Speer over 20.1 gr H322 with a CCIBR4 primer seated off the lands with plenty of space for run-up into the lands this load is too hot to do more than once. Velocity was 2395 from my 16.25" barrel

These were probably made for the 22 Hi Power which they have a metric name for and used in Europe.

Yes, they were for what here in the U.S. is called the 22 Savage High Power.

Probably RWS or Norma, you should get on the savage board over at the campfire you would trade them off easily to blokes who still love to shoot the savage 99s they are always looking for bullets
