I would like to work up some handloads for my AR15 .223 Bushmaster Varminter 1 in 9 twist, 24 inch barrel. Would appreciate your sharing any of your favorite handloads for all bullet weight ranges. Especially interested in maximizing accuracy for varmint, tactical or match purposes. Let me know how the loads have performed in your rifle. Thanks.

Check this against published load data and the listed OAL's but I've been using Sierra 55Gr BTSP's with 24.5Gr Win 748 for close in stuff (under 300yds) a good 5 round group at 100 is usually under .75" in my 20" Bushy.

Another good bullet is the 69Gr BTHP, heavier and more stable for some more reach out and touch. I just haven't yet found a loading I like enough to list.
