Berger 70gr Reload Info

This is my first post on the AR site. Looking for reload info for the 223 on the Berger 70 gr VLD. I have a DPMS with a 24" barrel. The old Super Bull.

Thanks

    Work up to 25.0 to 25.5 grains of RL15 at 2.260 and a standard primer in Win. brass. I think you'll be happy with this combo. It screams out of a 24" tube.

    +1 On the 70 Berger and Reloader 15. These two seem to be made for each other.
    My Bushmaster M4, 18" 1-8 heavy barrel, shoots these extremely well. Berger's data goes from 24-24.7gr of RL-15. I use 25gr with LC brass and Wolf Primers. OAL=2.60"
