    Default Loading for thr AR-15

    I am wanting to load some nice quality ammo for the old AR and was wondering if there was anything special to look out for when loading these weapons. I have new Winchester cases, CCI primers , Nosler 55 gr spitzer poly tip, and probably IMR 4895. Thanks TT

    YEP ! You should know the barrel twist rate it's usually stamped on tthe top of the barrel. The caliber, in this case since you are talking about 55 grn bullets I'll assume it's a 223.
    Bullet choice my need to be adjusted for best accuracy.

    FL size the brass, and I'd suggest H-335 as the fuel.

    Excellent advice.

    Trim the brass, I used a lot of W748 for general plinking.
