223 wylde (1:8 twist)

i have some 75gr match projectiles and i'm going to try them in a 223 wylde w/ a 1:8 twist. i do NOT have the powders listed in the hornady manual and 2 other manuals dont list that weight.

i COULD just go buy a pound of the stuff listed but, what's another (relatively safe) option?

They will work, you will loose 200 FPS though. As long as that works for you, go for it.

The one concern I have using the Hodgdon table(and I use it all the time) is when searching for loads for my ARs, their rubric is for a 1:12 twist rate. Does that make a huge difference in powder application, or am I worrying about nothing?

Speed, as it also typically shows a different length barrel.

A 12 twist won't stabilize a 75+ grain bullet. Why do powder companies even put this crap in there.

agreed. 1:7 to 1:9 should be in all. All my ARs are 1:7 or 1:8. I have never shot a 75 or higher grain, though. 62 has been my heaviest. Need to find that drop chart for the grains.

Not a reloader but I pick Outrider58's brain-- just in case. I do not shoot enough to warrant.

There are still quite a few M16A1's out there that use a 1 in 12 twist. PSA for those youngsters who weren't around back in the day that they were issued that way.
