    .222 reloading

    Hi is any one using hodgdon benchmark for 50grain v max for .222, if so what loads are you using

    it wont matter what anyone else is using, you will still have to work up your own
    personally I think the MV is a little low compared to other powders at this weight

    its a bit slow and you may struggle to get 24gr in a case

    a faster powder like N133/130, H322 or RL7 would be a better choice

    unless of course you have a shed load sitting around already!
