    Anybody else load the 40 grain loads in a .223 with good results? I tried them using Nosler's pistol data that tested with a 14" barrel since my AR has a 16" bull barrel (1:9 twist) and I was amazed at how well they shot. I am using 27.5 gr. of H335 with the 40 grain Nosler ballistic tips and I am getting groups in the .5-.8 range at 100 yards.

    Of course they don't shoot worth a hoot in my bolt action .223 but I didn't load them for that gun.
