    Well, I guess there is someone loading 70gr TSX at 5.56 NATO pressures:

    Actually not a bad price if you're looking for it.

I will look on Gunbroker and see if mil-spec "brown tip" has or is available (now you've got my curiosity piqued!).
    I'm averaging 2783fps for browntip out of my 14.5. Dunno what the civilian stuff is running, but I hear Barnes VorTx is loading a 70gr TSX to similar velocities as browntip.

    Now brown tip? It's time for an intervention. The idea that anything the military uses must be better needs to stop.
    I like it because it's sealed at both ends, reasonably accurate (1.5-2moa from my guns), and is expansion-viable to around 300 yards from a 12.5-14.5" gun. I've found it to be a bit more accurate than the civilian near-clones.
