as someone who uses cfe223 ... although not for its copper properties ...

i can confirm that it not only meters well, but everything i've tried it with (several weightts of 223 from 55-75gr) i found a nice node riight about max charge. like single digit ES.

so big plus to both meter well and shoot well. thumbs up from me!

That's a good looking Cast Bullet, but it doesn't have any lube on it. If he shoots them as is, it'll lead the barrel. Scrubbing lead out isn't fun. So he will either have to lube them, or powder coat. A good lube would be something like Carnauba Blue. It can be pan lubed fairly easily.
