    223 rem 69gr Sierra MatchKing

    anyone have a proven load using 69gr Sierra MatchKing and Varget?
    I built an AR 15 upper using a 16" 1:8 twist 5R 223 Wylde chamber
    My pet 55gr SGK were a no go and my 65gr SGK did ok with 26.2 grains of Varget @ 2.260
    I've read the 69gr SMK are the way to go, but I'm feeling a bit under the weather(and don't feel like working up a load) so i thought I'd ask
    around (cheat a little ) and see what i could find. Varget is the only powder I'm interested in using right now (have a bunch)
    thanks for your help
    (here is look at my take on a side charger 3 gun AR
    I'll post more about it after I finish a dedicated lower)

    Damn that is a nice gun.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    24/7 Pro C 40 S&W PT1911 45 ACP 738 TCP 380 ACP PT111 SS Model 66 .357
    About me - I take very little seriously especially myself.

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    Thanks, as soon as I finish my lower for it I'll post up some pics, basically its using the same lower set-up like my other AR's
    I might change the gas block to an adjustable one.

    I worked up some loads and 24gr of Varget shot a .630ish group... not bad considering its a light weight barrel and a 1-4x20 scope

    My Rockriver 20" varmint EOP with Wylde chamber likes 24gr varget, Cci br primers, 80gr SMKs. It shoots .5 at 100 with this load and lake city brass. I used this load when I started shooting 600yd f-class and it worked very well against the .308s. Send me a PM if you have any questions.
