    I haven't tried any Benchmark...I'm trying to find uses for all that powder I bought while I was experimenting...I hated the AA2230 until I tried it with those 50 Grain Noslers.

    I first tried Varget with them...but it didn't give me enough speed to even check the accuracy...27 grains of (completely stuffed case) Varget only got 2,800 fps with a 50 grain bullet.

    Next I tried Reloder 10x...it was better...but still not what I was looking for.
    I haven't tried the Reloder 15 with them yet...and probably won't because its even slower burning than Varget.

    I am going to get a pound of AA2460...maybe today...its supposed to be ever so slightly slower burning than 2230, and cooler burning too...easier on the barrel.

    I am looking into getting a RRA Varmint A4 upper with a 20 inch stainless barrel....that should be fun...and about 1/2 the price of the Remington XCR Compact Tactical (bolt action) I was looking at.
    I want some cooler running loads for the stainless target barrel...those will be another thread...showing 5 shot 100 yard groups covered with a dime...I hope...if everything goes right.

    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    The new Hornady manual has a section just of the AR15 (as well as the M1A and M1 Garand)
    From my cold dead hands.
    If it ain't a Colt it's a copy.

    Hi guys,

    I know this thread is a bit old now, but I just read it for the first time, and thought I might be able to add something useful.

    Here are two screen shots I obtained from a US Army TM manual for the M193 55gr ammo and the M855 62gr ammo. I hope it helps, but then again maybe you guys have already seen this. Anyway, if I did this right, you should see two pics below






    Does anyone know the type of propellant they are using? It shows WC844.

    There is also a HIGH PRESSURE TEST cartridge that is used to test the M16 rifle. This is more of a proof testing round, and NOT intended to be used as a "normal" round.

    THIS ROUND IS FOR PRESSURE TESTING BY THE DOD!!!!

    I know this is an older thread, but Ridgerunner you should try Benchmark. I quit using Varget to save it for my .308 loads. My Bushy predator and M4gery both run great with light to heavy 77smk's with Benchmark in the AR platform.

    I did try Benchmark, but couldn't get the speed I wanted with it. I never did find anything better than RL15.

    Thanks for the tip though...
