Howdy! I'm a new guy from Michigan. I'll probably just be reading the forums as it's not likely I'll have anything to contribute for a while.

I managed to find the site while searching for 220 Russian reloading information (mainly trying to find out who sells good reloading dies) for an Izhmash rifle (4 MOA from the factory, eek) I bought knowing only that 220 Russian brass was available :)

Oh, Yea Hi.
I am in SE MI. Most guys on here are shooting Benchrest. We take the .220 Russian brass and customize it to 6PPC.
This should get you started. Also order a #12 shell holder.

If you are going custom. That's a whole nother ball of wax....

Izhmash is a Russian industrial/firearms company. They're now part of Kalashnikov Concern

Here's a link to the rifle's official page

Oh, neat. You might live close enough to me where I can pick your brain in person :)

I am definitely not at the point where going custom is even a dream.
