Default Range report

Sunny with wind front right to left at 5 to 10mph . the temp was 45deg . I was shooting a Del-ton 223 . The barrel was free floated and I also had a a trigger job done . It has a short 16in M-4 barrel .The barrel is a 1 to 9 twist . I was using Winchester brass and Remington caps for small rifle. The powder I chose was H-335 24.8 gn with a 50 g Hornady 50g. sp./SX . I shot groups of three , three different targets and was able to keep all within 1MOA :-). Very pleased I believe I have found the load for this rifle .
