If you are loading for 223/556 make sure you trim them every time you reload. It's easier than taking the time to measure them individually and use CCI # 41 milspec primers.. AR's have floating firing pins and will leave a small indentation on the primer even if they are the correct OAL. If the case is to long or you are using normal primers you are likely to get a double and if the primer is not seated deeply enough you might get an out of battery and total you AR. I have seen this happen more than once. The same precaution should be taken if you are firing your 308's in semi's. only use CCI# 34 milspec primers. An acquaintance of mine blew up his match grade M1A using regular non milspec primers even after he had been warned. He said. "It never happened before"

If you're just shooting for practice, get the W-W or Remington 55 FMJ, M193 ball.
