Powder selection

Hey,

Sorry to bug you guys again, but I have a question. I am deciding to change powder, as I want to reload for .220 swift now as well as .25-06 and .223. I am considering H414, but as always, open to suggestions. Thanks!

P.S. What bulets do you usually shoot out of your .220 or .25-06?

I shoot 115gr silver ballistic tips over IMR 4350 with my 25-06. Right at .5 MOA

My swift and 25-06 both love IMR 4064. One powder, 2 calibers. Cannot beat that with the limited supply.

Re: Powder selection

Thanks guys,

I'll probably see if my friends have any, and then try some loads before I buy some (I like to buy in bulk or by the 5lbs.)

Once again, you guys have come through for me, and once again THANKS A LOT!!!

I owe you guys one!

Re: Powder selection

My .25-06 likes RL19 with 75 gr Vmax for vermin and 115 ballistic tips for antelope. It doesn't care for my favorite bullet, Accubond, so a new barrel from Lilja has arrived here this week.
I've tried the CFE 223 in a buddies Swift and that's what we're going to stay with as long as we can get it.....55 Vmax
