Well I finished my AR 15 is finished and I finally got it to the range. We all know that when loading for the ubiquitious black rifle, We tend not to load the ammo as warm as we would for a bolt gun of the same caliber. Since I didn't have any powder on hand to load a heavy 77 grain bullet, I decided to test my 50 grain vmax load recipie for my bolt gun in my AR. All safety precautions were followed and I didn't start with a max load. What I can report is that my full house vmax load not only functions flawlessly in my AR with no pressure signs, but grouped as good off the bench as my bolt rifle. My chrono is having issues so I couldn't get a good MV but when I work it out I will report back. For those whould would care to know.the load is as follows:Powder: 26 grains of N133 (Vhitavori max load is 25.9)Brass: Winchester full length sized and trimmed to 1.75Primer: Wolf 223Bullet: 50 grain Vmax COAL: Mag length.with a RRA 20" predator pursuit upper, this load delivered sub moa 5 shot groups from the bench. the best was 1/2 moa group and the worst was 3/4.
