WTB .224 bullets 50-55gr

I am looking for some bullets to try in my swift. I have shot 50 grain Nosler Ballistic tips and 55 grain V-Maxes, both with RL-15 and Varget, and haven't found a good combo yet. Doesn't have to be a full box, just looking for some options. I have reloaded some before but far from an expert so any wisdom would be appreciated aswell!! I shoot a Rem 700 VSSF with a 1-14'' twist. Thanks

Get some 55 gr ballistic tips and some H380. My go to load was 38 gens of H380 at a COAL of 2.680 using CCI BR2 primers. Shot awesome out of my Sendero.

Re: WTB .224 bullets 50-55gr

H380 and 4064 was going to be my next two options if these didn't work. My COAL is shooting best at 2.715 which is .40 off the lands. I have shoot them from right at the lands to .60 off, just couldn't get a group under 1/2'' and I know the gun will shoot better than that. It is my first time loading for my swift, and i didn't think it would be that picky on bullets. I shot some 52gr sierra HP bullets a guy had loaded up for P dogs and they shot a small bughole group, I am in the process to find out what powder he used in them. Would the A-Maxes work on coyoyes or just for paper?

A-Max will work on coyotes.

Re: WTB .224 bullets 50-55gr

I would really like to try some 52gr A-Maxes or 53gr V-Maxes. When I find out what dullet and powder combo I shot the other day I may take you up on the 52gr Sierras. I will shoot you a PM in a few days. Thanks for the help!!
