Re: .223 68 gr bthp
A group of members at range shoot the 223 Longrange to 1000y and using 69gr bullets and up to the 90gr VLD bergers.
we have all found the ball powders do not work they work great with 53gr match bullets but not the heavy bullets
RL 15, VT 540 & 550 all Lapua brass benchrest primers and CCI magnum primers.
Varget gets very good accuracy but a little less speed.
Note most guns are custom barreled Hart's Krieger & True Flyte, 1/7 twist 28" barrels, the Savages with 1/7 26" shoot very well also
All guns will group 5 shots under 1" best being 80gr Bergers VLD at .520 at 300y and second is Hart with 80gr sierra's .600"
