I am looking for real world experience.
So your going to load up a bunch of loads that were recommended on some bulletin board, that could very easily blow up in your face because the hodgdon website isn't "real world"??
Heres a load for ya, it works great in my gun:
.223 Rem -- 220gr of Varget (yes, very, very compressed load), CCI-250 Primers (pretty sure they will fit). Top that off with a 105 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip.
Last time I checked, they make the powder, doesn't get much more "real world" than that, but what do we know...
