AR15 LOADS

Anyone have any accurate loads for there AR they would like to share. Iím curently using a 52gr SMK backed by 27gr of H335 lit up by a CCI primer. It shoots good for a 14.5in BBL so I didenít venture onto any other loads yet. I would like get some input before I start wasting powder and slugs.Twist is 1 in 9.

Re: AR15 LOADS

I use Varget w/55 grains bullets. My favorite for hunting is 55 grain Hornady SPSX's. They're great.

For accuracy I'm looking at the new 55 grain Speer TNT's. They perform well in any caliber that I've tried (.308 & .257)
