factory loads for new rifle

I just bought a stevens 200 in .223 for a new lighter coyote gun. My custom 22-250 is more fun to shoot then carry. I placed a nikon buckmaster 6-18x on my new rifle, stabilized the stock and camo painted the rifle. I slightly adjusted the trigger thanks to some help, breaking right around three pounds. Now I need the help with ammo because of my limited budget i was wondering what factroy loads have proven the best because i perfer to try as few as possible. I have the 1-9 twist and i also know every rifle is different but i was wondering if one has proven pretty reliable for accuracy. thank you for helping a new shooter out and as always i ask here because this has proven a site that has always done great answering my dumb questions. once again thanks for everything!!!!

I have had excellent luck with Black Hills remanufactured 52 gr MHP. These shot well in several different rifles.

Black hills 69 gr match ammo ought to really shoot in that rifle. I shoot the same 69 gr Sierra Match King in my 223 AR-15 and they kill ground hogs dead on the spot and leave a golf ball size hole.
