Hahahahah thank you but i know what b.c. means i was just curious as to what he was looking for with it.

Ill have to take a look at the box in a little bit.

And ya i was pretty impressed that the little 50gr'er hit a 32oz powerade bottle at 607 yards.

Re: 607 yards with the ol 223 rem

500 are you doing this with factory fodder? If so that is truly impressive. I had to tweak my loads quite a bit to get that little 50 gr pill to connect over 400 at sub moa. Don't flame me guys but I am actually using H335 to do it. If only that powder was extreme. Next goal for the little .22s are the 53gr vmax. I have a swift, 2 22-250 and a wssm I wanna try those in as well. I love shooting distance with the little guns. Keeps things real. Don't get me wrong my 230 berger ballistic cruise missles are fun too but I can do it so much cheaper with a .22 cal. Keep up the good work 500.

Oh no!! It took me about 2 weeks of every night after work trying different powder charges different powders different oal's. Then when i thought i couldnt do any better with this rifle at a 1/2" group. Bang!! We hit the motherload!!! I have to aim a fuz out of my previous hole to even see anything showing there is anything but that one bullet hole.

I almost have so much work into this load it would be almost hard to share it.

I will tell you this its over max recommended load. But its what worked perfect in my rifle without any pressure signs.

Thanks, 500

Re: 607 yards with the ol 223 rem

I have never used my 55gr to shoot that long, because I buy cheap 55grainers. But I have enjoyed some 700 yard fun with the 69 SMK. Wind eats my ass alive after that. I've made hits at 1K but it's a wind guessing game and moving target. It's real fun to see what they can do, even though there is not much left out there.

Thanks for sharing.

H-380 and H-414 were always very good to me with the .220 swift and the 50-55gr bullets.

Re: 607 yards with the ol 223 rem

Shooting clay pigeons at 600 is what got me hooked on the LR game. After the wind picked up I decided I needed some more horsepower and sold my hbar ar for a savage .260. But its a ton of fun!

Re: 607 yards with the ol 223 rem

If you guys switch to faster twist rifles shooting 75-80 grain A-Max bullets you could really strech range. Making hits that far with 50 grain pills is really pushing it
