.223 load for the other rifle (not pistol related)

Post by Jack H on Wed Apr 17, 2013 6:33 pm

Rifle: Coltsman .223 (Sako)

With powder hit and miss at stores, I would like to know other powders and charges for 50-55gr bullets.



I load 69 SMK for the fast twist Rock River with Varget. But the bolt gun is for light bullets.

Here is some food for thought:
CFE 223, H 335, BL-C (2), Ramshot TAC, Reloder 10X, IMR 4895, Benchmark, and Winchester 748. Before you jump into some of these powders, though, you might want to work up a load with the Varget you have on hand.

26 or so of Varget would probably work well.

A pet load for Service Rifle is 26.5 of W748 with 52, 53, or 55 gr bullets. That should be good in a bolt gun too.
