    Is there any special consideration for loading .223 for an AR Pistol? Like the 11.5" Bushmaster? Are the same loads used for an M-4 the same for pistol?

    I was just wondering about accuracy in paticular. Thanks for the quick response also.

    Accuracy suffers a bit as does velocity. That being said, it's not like +P loads cross over from pistol to rifle. You SHOULD be able to hit an 8in gong fairly consistently out of an 11.5 out to 200. If you are looking to group at 200, I would suggest another barrel.
