    223 heads

    just got a .223 weatherby vanguard from a mate of mine and its a 1:10 twist.

    any one got any advice on bullet heads/powders? used for foxing only.

    thanks guys

    I would use 50gr Vmax or NBT bullets over Benchmark powder. Reloder 7 is another good powder option.

    Your twist will handle heads of at least 60gr's, but foxes don't need the heavier bullets.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    I use 50 grain blitzkings or vmax with 26.5 grain of Benchmark...

    vmax,blizkings or nostler all good. 50 grains will be a good choice. use reloader 7 in the 222 for same weight bullets and its very good. worth a try in the 223.

    the main powder i think most people use though in 223 is prob vit 133 or vit 135. but alot of powders will work well in 223

    ive a 1:8 twist, but ive been shooting 55g nosler bt and speer 55g h point using h4198 and blc2 with amazing results, this was a trial with the lighter loads and this powder as i normally use 60 and above. With the heads and load mentioned above, i collared 4 foxes last night with an average distance off 170 yards last night, stone dead so i cant see any reason why this mix wouldnt suit your 1:10, but as above, vvn133 or 135 would be quite suffice.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.
