    .223 load data for 75 gr. HPBT using Reloader-15

    Would some of you share some load data from your loading manuals (other than Lee - I have that one) for a 75 gr. jacketed bullet (Horn. 75 gr HPBT) using Reloader-15 powder?

    The Hornady manual doesn't show and loads for that bullet using Re-15. Just wondering what else may be specified other than what Lee has listed.

    What Hornady manual do you have? The 6th edition shows:

    RL-15
    2200- 20.0
    2300- 20.8
    2400- 21.7
    2500- 22.5
    2600- 23.3
    2700- 24.1

    Thanks, Hawkeye. I don't have the Hornady manual - I picked up the 7th Edition in the store and could've sworn that there wasn't any data listed for Re-15 in there - that's why I didn't purchase it. I'll have another look.

    You're welcome.

    You'll have to flip a couple of pages after the "223 Remington" to get to the "5.56 X 45mm NATO" data, as they don't list the 75 grain bullets on the 223 Remington section.

    Ohhhhh, I see. I did miss that. Is it OK to interchange the two for powder charge purposes?

    I was fireforming using that bullet and powder combo ( I shoot at 223 AI)

    I was using 24.2 of R15 and 75gr HPBT match bullets. I was getting very good accuracy, less that half moa
