    Glad to hear of someone else utilizing this awesome cartridge. Unfortunately I had to let mine go recently, but I hope to get another one soon. Here are some of my best loads. The 65gr SGK worked great on deer and shot a little under an inch. The Hornady 50 V max and 52 BTHP shoot one on top of the other at 100 yrds. I don't know why the 223 WSSM hasn't caught on better than it did. I guess the 22-250 had already won so many people over.

    65 SGK
    38.5 gr VARGET COL 2.175
    37.5 gr IMR 4064 COL 2.175

    50 V MAX
    40.5 gr VARGET COL 2.220 (one ragged hole)
    39.5 gr IMR 4064 COL 2.200

    I can't find my data for the 52gr BTHP, but they shot the best. As always these are just my loads and recommend you use good caution in using them.
