    What weight bullet? That's kinda important, for meaningful, helpful hints.

    Okey dokey, that helps a bunch:claphands: H-335, 748, Benchmark, Reloader 10 should be good, H-4895 or IMR-4895, 2230, 2520, TAC, and probably others will work.

    Reloader 15 and Varget will work, too, but I think they work better with the heavier bullets (69s and 75s)

    FWIW. in .223. I generally try 25.0 H-335 and a 55 VMax, if it doesn't shoot that well, something's wrong with the gun. I normally load that in WW cases and use WSR primers. It's "old reliable" for my purposes. I'm seldom disappointed with it, in any event.
