    I finally have my 1:9 twist .223AI back together and am looking at working up some loads with 75gr Amax and 65gr Gamekings. I have the following powders on hand H335, Varget, H4895, TAC, RL15, RL17 I hear good things about RL15 and the 75gr Amax, just looking for a good starting point. Thanks.

    H4895 was far and away the best powder in my gun. I ended up at 25.2 gr and about 3080 fps which is a pretty hot load in my gun. I would highly recommend a magnum primer to avoid piercing them. I use CCI450's. Varget and RL15 just didn't work that good for me.

    Just my $0.02
