sorry to be the ballbuster here, but i checked the board rules and they clearly state... "no pic - no pig". not trying to flame. just don't want anyone to get in trouble.

I bought a 762x39 Colt AR15 a while back. Traded it for a Bushmaster Competition AR 5.56 and I will never load those in a straight mag well again. 3-5 rounds went fine, the next were feeding issues.
SKS and 47's cycle em great.

The 223 or 5.56 will neck up to 6mm 25cal and 6.5mm and make great rounds.
I like the ease of these over the high dollar rounds. If you reload you own. The barrels for AR15 are out there. More power and better BC

Currently looking at the 358Win for a AR10 upper build. One very over looked cartridge with plenty of slam at range. I am also asking DPMS to make a few uppers in this as a limited production run. I will buy one maybe two of them. One factory load in 225 grain has 3122 ft pounds at muzzle.

I hope this is not Boring

IMO, anything dealing with guns or killing hogs isn't boring.

A 358 Win. is a neat idea. I've got a 450 Bushmaster and am waiting on a 458 SOCOM. I'm trying to limit my new calibers, since I'm running out of space in the safe.
