Re: Shooting a 223 to a Mile Accurately By Jerry Teo

Hi Jerry,
First off, Thank you for your time! You are right about putting lead down range. I plan on doing a lot depending on the weather! I have emailed several MFG. about my 223 barrel, I think some one said that Remington was the only co. that made triangle barrels. If I could find what or who made my barrel If it was in my price line I would buy another. I thought that I had found a range where I could shoot out to 800 yards, but I have tried 3 times and all 3 times they were going to be out of town
I realy like loading my 223 with H335 what powder do you mainly use? I never have used any of the new powders that have been out in the last 15 years.
Thanks for the advice!
Greg

H335 can be a very accurate powder but it is temp sensitive. Constant tuning will be needed to adj for varying temps.

Varget, Benchmark, IMR8208, AR Comp( assume this will work) are all better options.

I use Varget for my heavy 75 and 80gr shooting.

Good luck.

Jerry

Thanks Jerry,
I am going to have to break down and buy some of the new powders, one reason I havn't is I have enough powder to last my life time! I just sold 15lbs of powder last week, most of it was pistol powder and there is a long story behind that! I have people come over to see my reloading and to learn things, when I tell them that I used to pay $4.50 a pound for powder they don't believe me!
I also have H4895, IMR 4064, but I think they are temp sentive also?
If you were going to buy one of the new powders what would it be?

I have heard of those that tried the IMR 8208 with good results and also I heard alot about Varget, RL-15,RL-22 ??
Later
Greg

Great article other than the fact that Jerry said "then" instead of "than".

Not impressed.

Hey, when you guys say a powder is "temperature sensitive" it would be nice if you would qualify your statement. ALL powders are temp sensitive to a greater and lesser degree.

Blanket statements about temp sensitivity is meaningless.
