223 BL-C(2) Bench Mark ????

AR-15 with RRAs coyote 20"BBL upper. Tried two different powders with 55gr Nosler BT . So far Bench mark is the best. BL-C(2) performance was fair. Any one try IMR 4895? Varget? H335. Also fired 65gr Sierra Game kings using Ramshots "TAC" it also produced fair performance.I want a 250 yard coyote load.
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

I used to load for a Savage 110FP (1-9) and I shot both the 55gn NBT and 69gn Nosler Competition and Sierra SMK's. I tried BLC2, H4895,IMR4895 and Varget. Best powder in my bolt gun was W748. Got good velocity and shot .1's(55gn) and .2's(69gn). Good luck. JohnnyK.
