Hi Bill,Most reloaders will not give out their own load data to another shooter.It's not a "secret load" thing,but it is a "liability issue".
There are plenty of sources to point you in the right direction,as to what powders to use,and low and high powder charges for that particular powder.

The main thing that I'd suggest is get reloading data from the bullet mfg,and the powder mfg,and start from there.
What shoots good out of my rifle,might blow yours up,or not shoot good at all in your rifle.

Each rifle shoots loads differently from another.

Hornady,Sierra,and Berger make some great heavy weight .224 bullets,so I'd start there.

Default Heavy 223 load data

Agree fully with Hillbilly.
I've looked at a lot of this data from;

http://www.handloads.com/

and it SEEMS to be about correct, for what I checked, but main line powder makers know more than the rest of us.
Good luck...

I have no problem posting up my load data I also put a disclaimer that says "IT'S ONLY TESTED IN MY FIREARM AND FOUND SAFE YOUR FIREARM MAY DIFFER AND THIS LOAD MAY NOT BE SAFE IN YOUR FIREARM USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. START 10% LOWER AND WORK UP."

Now that the lawyer speak is out of the way. I don't load or should I say haven't loaded for 75gr in my 223 or my 556 YET. I planed on it one day. Thought about taking my RRA PPR and seeing how it would do with some 75gr SMK at the local F-class match.

Sierra makes a 77gr bullet. Hornady, Berger and others as well make 75gr bullets.

Take a gander at Hodgdon - The Gun Powder People for load data using their powders.

Also check out 223 Rem + 223 AI Cartridge Guide

They list 24.1 gr of Reloader 15 with a 77gr SMK as a good long range AR load.
