All Factory loads, no hand loads!
I was shooting this past Wednesday at the city range, initially fired Winchester 5.56 55 gr and later American Eagle 5.56 x 45mm NATO 62 gr.
Winchester was used to re-sight, operator error on me! After sighting completed at 100 yards, grouping was within 2 inches. We were having some wind from the North.
We have steel targets at the 200 and simulated 500 yard markers. I was hearing the 200 yard hits; but, not the 500 yard ones. I had to fire into the dirt backing on the side just to see.
I did fire PMC .223 55 gr as said early in the thread, the bullet drop was almost 4 inches from where the 5.56 was hitting.
I did not bring any other .223 factory ammo with me. Next time I will!
