    There aren't any, just look on the powder manufactures website to find a min load then work up from there, what works in someone else's howa won't nessasarily work in yours

    H335, but look up the charge yourself. Not to be a pain but with most powders in the .223 the extreme weight spread is often less than 3 grains: very often the spread is less than 2 grains. In some cases, 1.5 grains. Are you wanting folks to parse a few tenths of a grain to give you some assurance? Start at the bottom and go up . It won't take long to figure out what charge of a particular powder works. ~Muir
