it depends on your intended purpose and your personal pref
i know its not what you wanna hear but im not you so i cant guess what ya like. prolly everyone in this thread would hate using my prefered rifle and setup.
lots of peeps think my archaic fixed A1 carryhandle rifle is little better than throwing rocks. i get that a lot at various ranges i go to. but i let my shooting speak for itself. my A1 AR15 can keep the shots on paper standing at 300yards. but ive been shooting A1 configured ARs since 1986. my preferred load is 55grn fmj.
my theory on 556 is speed is everything i like my load to start with a mv of 3000+ fps ive never had feed or ejection issues with my ar15s one of which is a parts rifle from 4 different parts sources
my recomendation go out and handle ar15s at gunshows and gunshops fondle as many as you can. go and shop optics peek thru as much as you can get a feel for what works for you. when you decide the style you like roll your own
