I have only been able to find sammi .223 info. Anybody got nato spec duplicate handloads for 55gr or 62gr stuff?

If possibly post cases and primers used in addition to propellant and velocity/barrel lenth of test gun.

Appreciate it guys.

There is a reloading forum over in the General area, you might get more responses there. If you are going to load to NATO levels, you might take Black Hill's advice and only use new Lake City (military) brass for your loads, and hard primers, I believe CCI are considered the hardest commercial primers.

Army Ammunition Data Sheets (TM43-00001-27) has the data for M193 and M855 Ball (and all the others). Do a Google search for a downloadable copy. Note military ammunition is not loaded to powder weight, it's loaded to velocity spec. That shows on the data sheet as well as the nominal powder loads. Use non-sensitive primers. -- Chuck
