Re: Varget for 223 AR?

I am testing vargent right now in my M4 so far nothing super exciting however I am going to try two more loads 23.5 and 24.4 both of which are well under max in the hornady books and the hodgden. Stll though work up carefully and measure the head expantion as you go. I have found small high pressure loads such as the 5.56 to go from normal to high pressure with a few 10ths of a grain. I am shooting 68 grain hornady match right now.
