We shall see which one performs better!
also loaded up 200 rounds of fun .223 62gr 23.5gr TAC @ 2.250 :D
Have you ever loaded that TAC load before? 200 is a lot to test if things go badly. That's samck in the middle of the data, but I always like to test small lots, just in case.
I had a buddy do just that, didn't get his sizing die quite right & had to pull 98 out of 100.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
