    Think i've got a decent .223 load

    Hi reloaded some .223 ammo and tested em out today @ 100yds.
    Had very good results but 5 reloads shot brilliantly!

    Remington 700 PSS (police sharp shooter) with 3-12x56 Docter scope

    winchester .223 brass
    55grn nosler b/t (.224)
    cci400 small rifle primers
    24.5grns varget
    coal 2.250"

    I pulled the last shot or they would have all gone through the same hole!!!

    Looks like i'll be sticking with this load


    (the red dot on the target is slightly bigger than a 5p and slightly smaller than a 1p)

    Nope if i do my bit the foxes won't be escaping from the noslers

    Looked on the net last night and the bullets should be doing around 2990fps, which is fast enough for what i need.

    Speed isnt everything mate. Accuracy is key. The day a foxes out runs a load at 2900+ is the day we will pack up
