23 in barrel in 221 fireball contender

i was wonder if anyone had a .221fireball and was reloading for it. i've got a 10'' and 23'' barrel for my old t/c contender frame the 10'' shoots 50gr sx hornady with 18gr imr 4198 great, better than the 23'' barrel so that got me going thur diff bullets and powder mostly bullets 35,40,50gr v-max 40gr nosler bt they were ok but not what i was looking for untill i try the sierra 45gr varminter with 17.5gr imr 4198 it shot a 8 shot group into one hole 100 yards this was the 23'' barrel. anyone have the 23'' barrel and what loads have been working for it thank you

My CZ 527/21.9 inch barrel really likes the 40 V-Max and the 40gr Nosler BT with 14.8gr of 2400. 2400 give me excellent velocity and accuracy, it also keeps the barrel much cooler than the 4198s and other powders I have tried.
