Anybody use these to reload 223? I didn't notice these were magnum until I got home.

Heck no I wouldn’t use those for .223.

I’ll be glad to take them off your hands though.

They work great with ball powder. My first choice for reloading SRP ammo.
Much better primer than Rem 7-1/2.

I bet you someone would willingly take those off your hands and offer you some CCI 400s in return.

When I can't get 450's I just use 550's for .223 and .300 blackout. According to old CCI data they were the same primer anyway.
I've even used 550's for 6.5 creed SRP cases with no problems or accuracy issue.

They will work perfect. In case you didn’t notice, they’ve been hard to find the last year.

I had heard that, but wasn't too worried,.as I had found 3 bricks in my reloading closet. Not CCI, but they worked.
