Sierra 77 gr SMK or Hornady 75 gr BTHP
24.5 gr RL-15
Std small rifle primer or match primer
1.260" OAL
RP brass
~2815 fps from a 20" BBL @ 50* F-haven't chrono'd yet with my 10.5" barrels. Standard deviation was 7.0 fps from a 5 shot group. It was less than 1/2 moa @ 100 yards from my scoped AR. Be aware this load is kinda hot in a wylde chamber but not so much so in a true 5.56 chamber.

I'll chrono some 75gr loads with TAC this weekend.

I cannot get my AR15s to cycle Blue Dot loads. Not enough powder, and the bullet is gone too fast.
I have a single shot follower for the ARs.

H-335, Winchester primers, LC brass and 55gr FMJ's shoot super sweet out of my Olympic Arms AR-15, ultra match barrel.

Hornady 68gr MHPBT with winchester 748 did the best with my 1-7 twist AR.

52gn SMK, 25.5gns 2230. This has proven fairly accurate, and 2230 meter like water - ideal for bulk loading.
