What is your32gr Bullet Accuracy Load 204 Ruger?

I have found by experimenting that IMR 8208 is outstanding with 40 gr Bullets in the .204 Ruger. I have purchased some 32gr bullets very inexpensively. I have not found power and primer combination that will produce a SD less than the twenties and usually groups in the 2,5 to 3 inch range at 300 yards. I can get most 40s to group inside an inch with my custom barrel at 300 yards and SDs in the teens or even single digits.

What powders and charges do you like with the 32s in the .204 Ruger. Please don't answer unless you have a chronograph and have tried several powders.

I have tried H335, Reloader 15, 223 CFE, VV N-530, VV N-133, Alliant 2000MR, IMR 3031,

27.4 grains benchmark,win brass,fed primers,32g vmax gives me sub .5 groups in two different guns and 4220 fps in the cooper,and 24" cz kevlar is 4002 fps. Not the best load for either, I split the differance so one load worked good in both.both guns liked between 27 and 28g. Cz liked 27.2 best cooper liked 27.5 best
