    I know you probably want a screenshot, but I'm not sure how to do that...

    with your parameters;

    25gr gives 49,386psi and 3084fps (100.9% fill)
    25.5gr gives 52,663 psi and 3147fps (102.8% fill)
    26.5gr gives 59,937 psi and 3273fps (106.9% fill)
    27 gr gives 63,977 psi and 3336fps (108.9 % fill)

    As in the max safe load ...

    There are two .223 Rem on the system. The 223 rem SAAMI is rated at 55,000 psi, or at 62,366 psi as a non SAAMI round.

    25.8gr gives 54,747 psi at 3185 fps
    26.8gr gives 62,335 psi at 3311 fps

    Thanks

    very interesting results

    Question is what's the chamber ( Remington 700 ) design to take ?!?

    The brass shows no signs across the web & no sign in the primer

    5.56 NATO and 223 are the same pressure. CIP and SAAMI use different measuring methods resulting in different pressure readings with identical cartridges.

    Remington is the standard. sporting .223 chamber.~Muir

    Why are you making this so difficult? Go to Hodgdon's site, get a starting load going, and work from there. If you really want to get fancy, buy a chronograph. Or if you have really deep pockets, a Pressure Gun. Go shooting for heaven's sake.~Muir

    Really? I've operated pressure guns. If I could, I'd have one and a lab to support it.
    I reload every day I'm home. I shoot every day the weather allows... and sometimes when it doesn't!
    Got rid of the wife and got a girlfriend who likes to shoot....~Muir
