75 grain a-max loads

You guys got any starting loads for 75 grain A-max in a 223? How about a 220 swift?

    24.5gr to 25gr of varget seems to be the sweet spot for a savage .223 1:9 twist barrel.
    i use win brass,fed 205m primer, and .025 off lands

    shawn68,

    unless your Swift is re-barreled, it won't shoot the 75 amx. need 1 in 8 or 9 twist to stabilize it.
