Yeah, call me a sheep, but I'm thinking of stocking up on reloading supplies for Obamageddon part 2.

I have two AR rifles, both 16 inch barrels. The blaster has a 1/9 twist, the recce has a 1/8 twist.
I mostly shoot 55gr FMJ plinking rounds, and 40gr varmint rounds from my blaster, as well as ss109.

For the recce, I do shoot some heavier SMK's, but of course, I'm limited in weight by the twist.

If you were going to buy a couple of 8# jugs of powder, what would you get?, and why?


Varget?, H322?, TAC?, WC844?, other?

Thanks.

WC844 , because it shoot just fine for me and at $10lb it's even better

Another vote for CFE 223, I think that powder has a lot going for it.

IMR4198 and H335 have given us the best accuracy in our AR15's.

Your 1/8 twist barrel should be good to go for heavier slugs.

New powder? TAC

Pull down? 844

Why not get both? Run TAC in your higher quality loads and 844 in your plinkers...

Don't forget to load up on food, and other supplies.
