    I have lots of Hornady Z-max in .224. I can sell them in bags of 100 or boxes of 500. Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but if so, it would be whatever the price is listed in Cabelas or Midway plus shipping.

    oops...I thought I was responding to minute of elk

    was too late on that one....minute of elk... I mean

    dennis pa.......doing some load development on three bolt action 223s ....all with 10 twist

    have had these guns for years and had some loads that were just ok and the one cartridge that shot well was a bulk bag from cabelas labeled "55grn hp".....don't know any more than that...bought this before I started reloading

    I have some 50 v max that I can only get to shoot so-so in one gun
    have some 50 BT that shoots so-so in the other two. So far trying varget and BLc2.....

    I really need one of the 223 "modified cartridges" for my hornady oal gauge but I've been looking for one of those forever if anybody has one of those that would be AWESOME ! !

    so to answer your question...you probably wondered if I was ever going to get to that....
    I would prefer "varmint" type bullets and would prefer boattails....and because of the 10 twist thinking less the 60 grns......however willing to try anything
