At the risk of =none of my business= what rifle are you shooting the .223 through. Most any High Cap. semi-auto you're going to also want small base sizer dies. With that in mind, you are probably going to want FMJ bullets, that are much cheaper in bulk, than the 100rd. boxes from Hornady/Nosler. You didn't mention dies on your post, so maybe you have all of that covered? PM me when you get a chance, I may be able to hook you up with some .223 brass??
