Was talking to a guy yesterday and he was talking about how 223's sucked,with 55 FMJ's,which prolly is a fact. Then I touched upon 75 ELD's at 2900fps and showed him my DOPE and it floored him.

Boolits do tend to matter and the 223AI easily remains my favorite chambering of All Time..............

I took one of my 223AI to the 300 yard range yesterday. It is only a 1-12 twist so I shoot 50gr NBT's and they are freaking accurate. Going to work up a dope and take it to 600 if I can.

How about some advice re loads? Have just had delivered a Howa 1500 223AI. Itís the standard 1-9 twist so its 75g Hdy BTHPs all the way at this stage. I canít get ĎLever. Alliant powders are hard to get. Itís the ADI powders or not much at all. To that end I have H4895, Varget, H322 or 8208. Have any of you blokes worked up loads with 75s with these powders? Iím fire forming 75g BTHPs with 25.5g of H4895. Making 2920fps in the 20.5Ē bbl. I need the advice if you have some. Thanks.

Also add this query... Iíd be delighted with 3000fps with the 75 BTHP from the 20.5Ē bbl. Achievable with the likes of H4895 or 8208?

H4895 would be my choice,as I've used it in said application and what you wish for velocity wise,is very easily arranged.

Load density will be compressed and that tends to help ES/SD on the average..................
