I'm using ramshot tac. No complaints at all. I ran into one of those deals I couldn't pass up. I'm using about 22.5gr with an 80gr HPBT .223. Seems to be working well so far.

Edit loading data is here from ramshot

Hummm.... Thank You... Just checking data too.

TAC 62 MIL M855 22.5 2,800 25.0 3,078 54,947 2.260
TAC 62 MIL FMJ 22.3 2,825 24.8 3,084 54,787 2.223

I'll be loading with CCI primer

For shorter barrels reduce velocity below as follows(ca): 20" -3.9%/-130Fps// 16" -9.0%/-300Fps

Any other advice?

I have loaded up to 26.3 grains Ramshot TAC, with a CCI #41 primer, Lake City NATO brass, 55gr Hornady FMJBT bullets, COL=2.216", crimped with a Lee factory crimp die adjusted 1/2 turn past contact. I worked up to this from 23.0 grains TAC, everything else the same - every load functioned 100% in my upper (CMMG 16" 1/7 twist). Most accurate loads were 25.7 and 25.8 grains TAC. I did not chronograph these loads, though. I should, since I have a chrono now, I've just never gotten back up there to shoot these loads through it.

I have to go with Bolts Rock. After trying various powders, Varget has become my go-to with BL-C(2) close behind. Both drive 55 gr pills in my loads consistently accurate in my guns.

Sofar, AR-HBAR, Remington 799 love H-335.
Hopefully, after firearms deer season, I'll find out how the AR-6721 likes it!

HBAR likes Sierra 69 gr BTHP
799 likes Hornady V-Max 55 gr.

6721. . . . . .
