Where can I find info on this round at?
While I haven't gotten dies, I can reload as I described in my above reply. If you wanted dies, I believe the CH4D company can supply dies assuming you know what shoulder angle you need. I still have not done a cast of my barrels chamber so I don't positively know what the shoulder angle is. I believe it is the 40 degree shoulder just like the 7 TCU. That isn't 100% for sure though because some books list the 6 TCU as having a 23 degree shoulder like the original case the .223 and I always thought that was also 40 degrees. There isn't a whole lot of information on this round on the net. At least I haven't been able to fine a lot searching.
I do believe several articles were written in magazines back in the '80s but I saved very few of my old magazines.
The round is just the .223 case opened up to take .308 bullets.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
