    Different bullets for the .223

    I took this pic last night of some different bullets I'm trying in my 223. The one on the left is a 69gr SMK, the middle one is a 68gr Hornady HP Match bullet and the one on the right is a Nosler 69gr Custom Competition bullet. So far I've only shot the SMKs as it was too windy here today to try the other two. The BC on the Hornady is the highest and it's also the cheapest one of the 3. Not that there is that much difference but I thought I would mention it anyway.

    The middle one is. They call them HPBT Match. They aren't the A-Max bullets. I think those are 75gr or heavier.

    I am about to work up some loads for the same bullets, except the Noslers.

    I'll be trying H335, RL15 and AA2230.

    I would try benchmark and Ramshot Tac. I have had good luck with it out of my Colt with the 69 and 77 SMK's

    Yup,

    I know a source that stocks it regularly as well in 8lb jugs.

    Yep...I remember that from last time we met. That's where I buy everything now. A couple of my friends already knew about it and go there regularly too.
