    American Quality is pretty good stuff. I've been shooting it for years. They're owned by Federal, so their quality standards are high. I don't shoot .223, I shoot 5.56 but I see deals on these occasionally.

    Nice
    For the sake of knowing - why do you prefer the 5.56 over the .223?

    Ballistic coefficients are better with higher pressures, as is terminal velocity. I shoot coyotes and they simply perform better at extended ranges. I reload also, so I can customize my pressures and 5.56 have better cases for this. Downside is you can't reload as many times as the brass is more rigid.

    Which Geissele trigger do you all prefer, the SSA or the SSA-E?

    I don't think you're going to find anybody to say anything negative about Geissele triggers. People have their favorites, and Geissele are definitely up there on the list

    I ask because of that barrel being so short and so much unburned powder coming out of the barrel, does your suppressor stifle it down enough to still not half to wear ear plugs. Because in ours, it throws almost a 10 foot flame out of the barrel.

    I thought .300 BLK only required 9" of barrel to fully burn powder?
