25.5grs of W748 gets me mid 2900's from 16" barrel and 55gr M193's.

This. Do not try and reload to 5.56 pressures. It's not safe and you can achieve similar results with quality commercial powders. Plus the powders they use are in bulk and vary by lot and are also not very consistent. Commercial powder does too, but................. not like the surplus.
