    I keep Federal Fusion 62gr. in our M4's incase something go's bump in the night....or the day. I've thought about trying them in our deer rifles. Heard good things about them.

    Thanks Pappabear.

    I too have a 700 5R 223 with 1 in 9. I actually set my 308 up just like my 223. It's also a good shooter. The heaviest I've tried in my 5R so far were Winchester Match 69gr. BTHP and Federal Gold Metal 69gr. BTHP. The Federal's shoot a little better so I just stuck with them.

    I shot some Hornday Match 75 gr. BTHP's in my 5R 223 this past weekend. They actually shot pretty good.
