Does anyone have a good load for a subsonic .223. Rifle is a AR15 with 16 inch barrel.

I read in a Lee reload manual about reduced charges, but it seemed more like a science project if I remember correctly. Don't know if it is worthy risking a bullet lodged in a barrel.

Having a bullet lodge in the barrel would be the lesser of two evils. The main risk would be in low-pressure Kb.

Subsonic .223 would be a good buttstroke.
Too bad you would wreck most rifles in this cal doing this!
In all fun, Hank
