I have a rifle on hold at a lgs I am making payments on. I have been unable to get much info on reloading specifically for this rifle, and have a few questions. I will mostly be loading to .223 spec pressures.

What OAL does the factory supplied magazine permit? Are there others that permit a longer OAL?

Are most finding better accuracy with bullets in the 60gr and heavier category?

How do they handle the more robust bullets (TTSX, Gold Dot, SGK, etc.)?

What rifle is the OP loading for? What brand mags are supplied with it? What is its twist rate? What does he mean by “handle the more robust bullets” - shoot them well, feed them well, kill well with them? We need more information to provde more than just guesses.

What rifle is the OP loading for? RUGER AMERICAN RANCH 5.56X45mm with AR mag

What brand mags are supplied with it? NO IDEA

What is its twist rate? 1:8

What does he mean by “handle the more robust bullets” - ACCURACY, VELOCITY FOR THE SHORTER BARREL, FEEDING, JUST ABOUT ALL OF IT vs BULK FMJ OR VARMINT BULLETS



.
Hope it is a little more clarified.

Get the D&H aluminum mags and you can lengthen them out a bit. BU I load em for both Magpul in the ARs and Tapco for the Mini 14. But they shoot very well in my MPR which is also 1:8. They shot well in my buddies Colt M4(1:7)clone.
