    I need a starting point for loads for an AR-15. It has a 20inch barrel with a 1-9 twist. I will be using this for shots out to 600 and do not want to single load. Yes I have read the .223 reloading section.

    Load development: The good, the bad & the ugly.

    Ok so I just got done putting this rifle together and started doing a bit of load development. Ultimately, I will develop a 175 gr. load but at this time, in my area, all I can get my hands on are 168 SMK HPBTs. I also had to use Remington 9 1/2 primers as I am out of BR2s. Anyway, here are the...

    44 Mag Load

    I picked up some Barnes XPB 225gr 44Mag bullets. I was wondering if anyone has any loads for them with W296/H110. All that is listed in the Barnes Manual #4 is AA#9 and Enforcer. These are as long as my 300 XTPs and will compress the hell out of mild charge.
