loads for ruger mini-14 tactical 580 series


Does anyone have any experience loading for the 580-series mini-14 tactical model in 223 ??

Any accurate loads?

I found that with my mini-14's, they shoot better with lighter loads... I got well under 2 inches at 100 yards with iron sights using 26.0 grains of W748 and a 55 grain Sierra Gameking. Winchester brass... It likely would have shot tighter with a scope...

Good luck.
