Does anyone have any experience reloading 223 for Bushmaster rifles? I have a flat top V-Match with a 20" barrel with a 1:9" twist. Looking for good starting point.

I have a 16" Bush that I like to use 55gr FMJ's, propelled by 24.5gr of AA2015 or 24.5gr of AA2230. Being an autoloader, make sure you check your cases first, most will need to be trimmed.
Also, see discussion forums...there's one there for reloading for the AR

I trim everything to length, even in my bolt actions. Consistency is the game......I'll check the AR15 website. Thanks.
