You will definitely give up seeing some hits by using 55 gr rather than 40 gr bullets. I originally went to the 40's because they allow me to spot for myself and the 40 gr Nosler BT's have always shot very well in every rifle I have tried them in.

I no longer load anything heavier in my 223's, the great majority of my shooting is withing 350 yds though - my self-imposed limitation to keep my hit percentage up.

223 Rem, my favorite cartridge - you can't argue with truckloads of dead PD's and gophers.

Agreed. I bought mine in the 1K count little ammo cans, and they're both accurate and very violent. Even the little Deuce hits with real authority.
