specifiaclly does anyone know the charge and powder currently used in the M855. A reliable link would be awesome.

(in an arguement right now with someone who does not know 62gr. is the bullet weight and keeps trying to tell me its the powder charge)

I have the Technical Manual at home with the specs you're looking for. If you don't get an answer by the time I get there I'll post the page in question.

I believe this is what you are looking for, page 170:

Ah, that's the one. Page 10-19 (or 170 in the PDF) is the one you're looking for.

How the fuck do you fit 62 grains of powder in a .223 case???  Thats way more than what i load in my 30-06.  (47.6 gr)

I think the hottest load i've used with a 69 gr was 25.9...

Yeah thats what I said, 62gr of powder is not going to fit in the case
