Here are a few of my loads;

25.0 gr varget
68GR Hornady BTHP
Rem 7 1/2 BR primer

same as above w/ 24.2gr of H4895


Keeping in mind I shoot a 1/7" twist. I don't reload too many light bullets for my .223's

Varget-25.0 grains

H 4895-26.0 grains

Winchester Small Rifle primer, 60 grain V-Max bullet

Benchmark, H-335, 748, H-4895, Varget works well enough, Reloader 15 is good, 3031, H-322, just about anything faster than Varget or 4064 works well enough.


Which bullet weights are you planning to use the most?

Looks like I'm running hot. I have used that load for at least 10 years. I will look through my old books this weekend and try to find out where I came up with that. Thanks!

:whiteflag: Wow!
My 55 gr load comes from the 5th Edition Loading Guide for Accurate Smokeless Powders- a freebee given to me by Mike Graf in 1992.
For AA2230 powder in the 223 Remington and 55 gr bullets a starting load of 24.6gr is listed along with a max load of 27.3gr for a velocity of 3450 from a 24inch tube.

Looking to my Accurate Loading Guide Number Two-published in 2000. 223 Remington with a 55 gr Nosler SPBT using AA2230 starting load is 23.4gr, max load is 26.0 for a velocity of 3216 from a 24 inch tube.

Eighteen years later Max load is 25.0 grains, only 0.4gr more than the old starting load. I didn't know I was living dangerously.

Me thinks there is a lawyer in the boardroom..

Just depends what i want,if i want speed and safe pressue i use TAC Powder with 55 grn or 62 grn pills,But AA2230,H335,BLC2,3031,Varget,4064,4895 also works very well,But another powder i use for plinking is RE7 but it is a very fast powder and you have to be very safe as you can double charge a case very easy if your not 120% paying attention.
