    Nothing better than Barnes copper.
    Somewhere along the way I have lost the ability to act politically correct. If you should find it, please feel free to keep it.

    Nosler now makes a 64 grain BONDED CORE bullet specifically for the AR .223 - not only does it address the terminal performance but feeding as well

    No trouble at all getting that bullet to fit a magazine, lots of room to play. I've never loaded the 70gr TSX however the 62gr TTSX barely fits a magazine, having said that its got that little plastic tip sticking out!

    Nosler designed it for the AR's - No matter what you might hear, Nosler's bonded core bullets WORK

    The 62 grain TSX would be my suggestion for a hunting bullet in an AR. They'll kill well out of proportion to their size...
    Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.
