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.

In a 1:9 bbl, try the Sierra 69gr MatchKing @ 2.245" OAL over 25.0 gr WW 748, or 24.5gr Varget

For varminting out to 350, try a Sierra 55gr Varminter SP or GameKing HP @ 2.225" OAL over 27-28 gr WW 748

Pick a primer, pick a case, it's still gonna go to the same place :)

These loadings should be reduced by 10-15% and worked up carefully for your rifle.
