compiling all of the best FREE 223 / 5.56 load data manual and links.

223 rem the civilian SAAMI spec version of the military’s 5.56 NATO. Both cartridges are great for small-medium sized game and varmint hunting. They are also some of the most inexpensive to load for and give exceptional accuracy for their price point! With a wide range of bullets to choose from you would be hard pressed not to find a load to fit your rifle or situation.


Our Favorite 223 remington load is 21.5 gr. of IMR3031 with CCI standard small rifle primers and Hornady 55 grain FMJ-BT bullets.
