The 224 Predator is a wildcat based on the PPC or Grendel brass, we recommend Norma Grendel brass. It is the same as a 224 LBC or 224 Grendel. The 224 Predator has a short freebore setup for the long VLDs. The freebore is only .080 so be sure to check where they touch the lands before loading ammo. Many of the 75 and 80gr bullets need to be set around 2.22" OAL. The 62gr Fusions hit at 2.085. 30gr CFE works very well with 75 and 80gr bullets.
Many people think you should be able to load every bullet out to full mag length at 2.26" but you can't. If you loaded a 55gr Nosler to 2.26" it would fall out of the case. The 80 Berger and 75ELDs are long and if you load them to 2.26 the top of the boat tail/bottom of the full diameter is not down to the shoulder-neck junction in the case.
Regardless of what you think when the 80 Berger is loaded to 2.22" OAL the bullet is not protruding into the powder capacity. Only the boattail is below the shoulder junction.
Bottom line, check to see where the bullets hit the lands and back off .010"

This barrel will shoot up to 80gr ELDs, Not 88s or 90s or 95s.
