You'll have to experiment with it. But to be honest you were all over the bench moving around the bag, all hunkered down, a common mistake. Get some good rests under the rifle that are rock solid and high enough so that when you sit down your shoulder and the butt stock are at the same height. Then you can start actually grouping well enough to see what it likes to eat. At 5 degrees I'm n front of the fire place.

I have always said the wylde is like the 16 gauge, neither hay nor grass, somewhere in the middle. There is no need for the chambering. Here is another data point.

The wylde chamber has some great benefits to it. It has the accuracy of a tight, .223 rem chamber, but the ability to shoot hot 5.56mm rounds.
I'd say 95%+ competitors use it in their service rifles.
Mine put 18 of 20 rounds into less than 3" at 600yds. With the 2 called flyers, it was 1.1 MOA.
As far as loading, use the heaviest bullet the twist will stabilize, loaded to somewhere between .223 Rem and 5.56 MM pressures, and seat the bullet so it just fits the mag. Apply a light crimp with the LFCD, and it should shoot better than you can hold.
I know mine will.

You have a good rifle. We see the PSA offering on display. A Wylde chamber is no tighter or looser than the tolerances adhered to by the manufacturer is it? If I were loading for it I would neck size only maybe? I 'm not a competitor but the matches I watch don't have a lot of stainless barrels in them for another data point. You definitely have your combo figured out brother. That's some excellent shooting.

Thanks, Chill.
It took about 350 rounds before this barrel reached "good" shooting status, and so far it's maintaining it.
Since I'm loading for a service rifle AR, Neck sizing is out of the question. But my size die has been polished, and I only set the shoulder back about 1.5 thou.
I do use quite a bit of neck tension, and the neck ID after sizing is .218-.219".
I use boat tail bullets in it, and and seat them slowly and carefully.
As far as the wylde chambering, it's in the throat where it deviated from either 5.56 or .223 rem.
I forget the actual measurements, but for me it works, and I'm gonna stick with it until the barrel is shot out.
As far as stainless, I'm lazy.
