    So what do you like to use for practice and what do you like to load for defense?

    Practice: PMC. 55 grain 5.56 mm
    Defense: Zombie Max, just kidding. Hornady TAP

    55 grain ball ammo in my range gun. Normally Federal, but not always.

    Black Hill 69 grain match hollowpoints for anything else.

    For range blasting, I use 55gr FMJBTs, loaded over 24.5 grains of H335, lit by a CCI 450. For everything else, I use a similar load, substituting 60gr Nosler Ballistic tips.

    My AR has a 1:7 twist and loves the 62g green tip.

    You know, come to think of it, I don't think I've fired a SINGLE round of factory ammunition through this rifle in the four years I've owned it!

    I had a lot of luck with Federal XM 155 ammo the one time I bought ammo. Its HOT! 3540 fps from a 20" barrel. Now I reload everything.
    Komi, have you tried Win748 for powder yet?

    Not yet, Mike. I have used H335, BL-C(2), and TAC in my AR, along with some Varget in my bolt rifle. The Varget doesn't run so clean through my powder measure, so I save that for accuracy loads that I meter and scale individually.

    I shoot what I am issued.......

    Federal 55 grain.
    Green tip penetrator 62 grain.

    all work well for me. I stick with that for two reasons. 1. I know how its gonna perform out of my rifle 2. its free and I can get LOTS of it.

    BHK 065

    I forgot, I had a lot of Hornady 68gr something given to me a while back that shot very well in my carbine. 1.8" groups at 200 yards was the best I ever got out of that upper.

    Given that my work is all range-time, except the occasional coyote or varmint-popping expedition... yeah, item 2 there would sell it for me!
