Re: 223 suggested loads
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><HR>Regarding 223 caliber:
what about a 1 in 12 twist? 24 inch barrel? remmie 700 in 223 caliber? What would be a good bullet and load for that combo?
target shooting for accuracy to as far out as I can.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
50gr bullets and W748, H335, BLC2, 4895 always seem to be popular powders when using this combo you asked about. I've got the same Rem700 12 twist Varmint special and mine loves W748 w/ 50gr Nosler BT. This load goes sour in colder weather. But during hot PD shooting days.... it's a killer. A 223 with 50gr bullet reaching out to PDs in touchy wind is a real challenge. Loved every minute of it. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
