My SS-109 loads

I developed these loads by working up from the start load from Speer's 62 gr FMJ bullet data. Speer #12 and on up.
I worked up past these loads until I got pressure signs and then dropped my load back 1/2 grain. this is what you see here. No pressure signs in my rifle, be sure to drop these loads 10% to start your work up.
I consider these Maximum loads in my AR.

Notes: These are 2 moa loads at 100 yds, because of the bullet. I use heavily marked pulled bullets and see very little difference between these and unmarked bullets.

Intended use: Practice, and blasting.
Cartridge/Caliber: .223 Rem
Case manufacturer: LC Nato cross, I don't sort by year.
Case length: 1.750
Bullet manufacturer: Pulled Military bullet. I get them from Wideners, and Hitech. Both are listed up in Links.
Bullet weight and type: 62 gr FMJBTSC (steel core)
Powder type: AA-2230
Powder charge weight: 24.5 grs
OAL: Seated to mid cannelure, light crimp with Lee FCD (factory crimp die)
Primer: Win SR or Wolf SRM. I re-worked up these loads when I switched from Win SR to Wolf SRM. Either primer is GTG in my AR.
Firearm tested in: Home built AR, 16 inch heavy barrel, 1 in 9 twist.
Chrono data: don't know
