    That’s my current load for my A4 style rifle with carry handle sights. I’d like to try some 62 grain bullets to take advantage of the fast twist in that barrel, but ammo drought...

    Favorite load, haven't found it yet with the new gun. Still searching though.

    Hornady 55g FMJs and SPs with a close to max charge of TAC.

    Sorry don't have my notes in front of me, just don't want to post bad info

    I have a couple 223 pet loads, but neither are close to what the OP is currently using/doing.
    (FWIW, I've experienced the best accuracy with heavy-for-caliber 'match' type bullets and 8-9 twist)
    Are you looking for something different or something more along the lines of what you're currently loading?

    I like Varget with the .223 Remington. Using a Speer 55 grain soft point and Remington 7 1/2 small rifle primer.
