Intended use: Training/Practice
Cartridge/Caliber: .223 Remington
Case manufacturer: Lake City 08
Case length: SAAMI Minimum
Bullet manufacturer: Hornady
Bullet weight and type: 55 grain FMJ With Cannelure
Powder type: H335
Powder charge weight: 25.0 grains
OAL: 2.25
Primer: CCI 400
Firearm tested in: BCM M16A4
Chrono data (Avg, ES, SD): Unknown (But it does track well with the BDC on my TA31F-G out to 400 meters, haven't tried the load any further out)
NOTES:
Safe load, easy on brass. For best results, use the CCI450 primer. The CCI 400 has a rather thin cup and flattens easily, giving the impression of high pressure signs when in reality, its a very safe load. The load is from the Speer Reloading Manual.
