    rl 7 is pretty fast for heavier pills in the 223. I'd go to rl15( or AR comp.) or h4895; possibly TAC.

    7 is way too hot. Those little holes in your receiver will be spitting fire.....

    H322 is what I use for my 55 grain BTSP's.

    I use 25 grains of Verget with a 69 grain SMK boolet...at 200 yards it will print 1 1/8 inch 7 shot holes...This is 1 in 9 twist...and bullet just touching the lands..
