    .223 oal

    hi guys, i already have a load that i like in my .223 and im about start trying toget the groups that bit tighter(it doesnt need it but i like to play) and i was just wondering what sort of oal everyone else uses with a 50 grain bullet? i have mine at 2.22" at the moment but will be making them a bit longer next.

    oh i know this, im not after advice its just a curiosity thing. i was bored early and just thought id see what i could actually get to chamber etc, the longest with out having to "force" the bolt was 2.9"

    my old 223 info was
    rem LTR 223
    5 "tho off lands
    coal `1.9150 50 gr
    coal 1.9190 45 gr frangable head due to short OG
    no use to you i no, but this was mine

    i used bullet comparator and o.a,l gage mod case ect to setup correct chamer size and backed then off lands and my ar15 with 69hp match were around the same ish
