Re: .223 Rem
I've had exceptional luck with 40 gr BT and 25 gr of Win 748 loaded out to magazine length in my 223 (longer than the book COL).
Mine wears a 4-12 5 Star Redfield and is plenty of scope for p-dogs and yotes. Anything with 12-14 on the upper end in a decent or better scope will work fine for gophers out to 300 or so. Burris FFII Tactical, used Redfields, Nikons, Weavers, Loopys, etc will all work fine for your intended use. Longer range will demand a different bullet and scope...
Wind really affects this bullet, so 300's about the limit for it in mine, but deadly on p-dogs. Should be good medicine on gophers, too.
