80gr or 75 amax

i cant decide it i want the 80s of 75 in the 223. aiming to hit bunnies at 600 and further if i can manage it. 24inch barrel with silencer.
will the speed added in the 75s make up for the lower bc?
thanks

Re: 80gr or 75 amax

What twist is your rifle? That's the main factor. I'd run the 80's if you have a 1-8 twist. There pretty close to even at 600 yards.. but...out to 1k the 80gr seems to work better for me. And the 75gr'er would run better with the 1-8 as well.
Remember, if your going to push the round hard the suppressor will add a little back pressure to your over all peak pressure.
Good luck.
