How long is your barrel? If it's 14.5" or shorter, I'd go 55. If it's a 20", you could go 60 if you plan on shooting at longer ranges.

With the ammo facs around here all stating that bigger/heavier is better the 75 grain TAP would be my choice, especially considering you have the faster twist rate. Just my opinion, Mike

If you haven't already, do check these resources: [url]http://www.iwba.com/[/url] [url]http://www.firearmstactical.com[/url] Last, poke around [url]http://www.tacticalforums.com/[/url] and search for posts by "DocGKR" - he's got great info. on wound ballistics and specific recs for .223 rounds. Good luck!

I would definitely go with the 75gr Tap. Make sure to check the accuracy of this round. It should do well in the 1/7 twist barrel. I would like to hear about the results of your range sessions. Stay safe.

We use the 55-grain TAP in our G36K's, which have about a 13" 1 in 7 twist barrel. The 55-grain bullets work fine. The 75-grain TAP is a BTHP, not the same design as the 40, 55, and 60-grain TAP loads. The 75-grain was extremely accurate in our .223 Remington 700P. The 55-grain TAP outshoots 55-grain Federal BTHP match in the G36K's by quite a bit. If you're planning on shooting targets at distance, get the 75. If you're planning on being inside buildings, get the 55. My preference is for the 55.

Ditto Sparky. For CQB, velocity rules. IMO, the real question is, "At what range will I most commonly engage?" If under 100, my vote is 55, due to velocity.
