handloading the .223

autoloaders tend to like max powder charges more. I tried min charge and my bolt would not hold back after last shot. I went with max charge and it fixed the problem. Also you want to watch bullet seating depth, for magazine clearance. Dont use flat nose bullets, will have feeding problems. I have found the 52 grain boattail A max by hornady, with 25.5 grains of Accurate Arms powder to be very accurate, with a 1 in 9 inch twist barrel. Dillon loading equipment is hi quality, no BS warranty.
