Re: Questions For .223 Shooters, Not 5.56 NATO
I also reload mine. I load a 40 grain Hornady Z-max bullet using 27.7 grains of CFE-223 powder. I am shooting it through a Weatherby Vanguard rifle with a 24 inch 1:14 twist barrel.
I also load for my AR's in 5.56 , both have a 1:9 twist and I load both a 55 grain bullet and a 69 grain bullet for them.
