It is not an high pressure cartridge. I have shot them 4 times. May be time for annealing. Looks like will go beyond 10 reloads. If you hot load them I dont know. I dont load them over 2500 fps we with 600gr woodleigh. I am still using the same 10 pieces for load devolopment.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
