    i shoot 55gr fmj in a 14.5" AR and 175gr SMK or 178gr Amax in a 24" .308 R700. i am currently using RL-15 in my .308 loads and am starting to load for my AR. id like to get another powder that is good for both so i can stock more of fewer powders.

    what do you guys use for these calibers?

    I've used about 16#'s of TAC in .223. 25.2g's over a 55FMJ is what my 16" AR likes. Its good stuff, meters well and it used to be real cheap, think I paid 90-95 bucks per 8# jug.

    I use a lot of it in .223, and I'm getting ready to try it in 308 when my Varget runs out.
