Looks good.

What velocity are you running them at? I can get them up to 3065 out of one of my rifles but the sweet spot have been in the 2900-3000 mark with most of my 223's. I dont batch projies or cases either. .

Not real sure on speed I'm only using a mild load (under 25.5 of 2208) and I have not trouble with tight shells or pressure
The last i checked which was some time ago it was just on 2900 give or take
