I like the H335 for 55 grain 5.56. I use a lot of Varget for heavier bullets in 5.56 and 223.

I agree. The H335 is better for 55 to 60 grain pills. For heavy 223 (77 SMK) I use Ramshot Tac. It is a ball powder like the H335 so it meters well. I just get the powder dumper set and don't do any trickle charging like with stick powders.

As for Varget, I know that stuff is temp stable and consistent but I can't convince anything I have whether it's 223 or 308 to like it. RE15 on the other hand runs great for an accuracy round in my bolt action and autos.

Looking at the Sierra chart for 77 grain bullets, you can see how the Tac outperforms everything else for speed. I run 24.1 grains and the chronograph tells me it's running about 2780 out of a 20 inch barrel.

My Savage model 12 LRVP loves it.

This was five 80 grain SMK's set a couple of hundredths off the lands at a hundred yards.

It works pretty well in my 20" 308 too.

Fun thing at the range.

Put one in the black, then two off the paper...

Claim it's three in one hole.

See how long you can keep a straight face...

It was the best group of the day. I was trying to time my shots because the damn cross hairs were jumping every time my heart beat. That Model 12 was by far the most accurate rifle I've ever owned, and it liked the 80 grain Match Kings loaded long. It would consistently shoot under half an inch at 200.

It spent most of the last 5 years in the safe though so I traded it minus the scope a few months ago for a lightweight 14.5" mostly BCM lightweight AR.

Then I sold the scope and bought a Mepro M21 for another build I'm impatiently waiting on my tax stamp for. Once that comes in the M21 will go on a second upper for the one in the top of this picture. The upper on it in the picture will get 8.5" Noveske 300 Blackout barrel.

Pappy, you have some cool stuff. I see three Seekins lowers in that bottom pic. You have good taste. You need to be my neighbor.

Thanks. I'm pretty proud of those builds. Seekins upper and lowers, the top 2 have Seekins handguards. The bottom one is a BCM. The 18, 16, and soon to be 14.5" 5.56 barrels are all FN made double thick chrome lined. The 300 Blackout barrel will be a Noveske. Geissele LPK and triggers. JP silent captured spring buffers. Rubber City lightweight carriers with adjustable gas keys. That's a Leupold MK 4 2.5-8x32 on the DMR. The bottom two run like the precision machines they are. Shoot straight too.

I only run Geissele triggers. Where did you find out so much about ARs? Most people buy junk parts. You buy nice top of the line stuff. I'm impressed.
