Hi,

Went to the opening of Cabellas in East Hartford and asked for 2 lbs of Bullseye powder, they have to set it aside and you pick it up at checkout, with the crowd there yesterday they gave me 1 lbs of Reloader 15.

I am looking for some loads for 223, anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

One of the best reccomended match loads for the .223 in the AR-15 with a 1-9 or 1-8 twist is 25.3 gr RE-15 and a 69 gr sierra.
Agreed It work most excellently in the 223 with bullet 60 gr and heavier ,The load above is a wee warm for my liking but my High power match loads are on the mild side.I use 24.0 grs of Re15 with 60 gr Serria and Hornady Vmax for reduced course matches and 24.0 with the 69MK and 75 gr hornady Amax for full course matches. Its more accurate than Varget IMO Also works very well in 308 loads with 150-165 gr bullets
