    Loading for the .223 is usually pretty easy. There are several powders that work great. For 50gr bullets, my favorite powders have been Benchmark and AA2015. Other's swear by V-133. However, h335, h322, 4895 and countless others will work just fine. One of my favorite loads is 26.5 grs of Benchmark and a 50gr V-max. Good luck-Duff

    I like the 50 grain v-max over 27.5 grains of Varget. This is listed max load. Groups well in my rifle.

    I use 26g of Benchmark with a 50g Nosler Ballistic Tip, a wicked combo. It wistles along very nicely [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    If you'll try 27.1 grains of W748 (ball powder, meters very well) I think you'll be very pleased with the accuracy... That's an OCW load recipe, and it has shot very well in virtually every .223 I've tried it in--and also in rifles belonging to others. Give it a shot.
