    Load for 52gn A max in .223Rem

    Does anybody use V140 with 52 gn A Max? If so could you let me know what works in YOUR rifle?

    Thanks,

    The Viht accuracy load is 24.8 grains of N133, & is just that in both my .223's, 52 grain A max, or substituting a Nosler 40 grain bt, no powder change.

    I have quite a bit of V140 which I use for 7mm08 and 308 and in the past for .223. I also have a part tubs of Vectan Tubal 3000, Reloder 19 and Winchester Supreme. I was trying to avoid buying more powder but if V133 does the job then maybe I will 'have to bite the bullet'

    Thanks for the input.

    Benchmark is pretty good if you have any lying about.

    All your powders are a tad slow for a 52gn bullet, so therefore you'll probably have a full case and mediocre velocities.
    I've found 223 exceptionally easy to reload for with that bullet, where N133, Benchmark, R10x, TU2000 and both 4198 powders have all shot well.

    24.6 grains of N133 on the spot 3 shots one hole. thats good enough for me

    I like 3031 and 4895. Some of the best groups I've gotten are from using a "cannister" (non commercial) powder I was shipped in an 8# keg. It has the burn rate of IMR 4895 but is a clean burning ball powder. About any good bullet will chase the previous round into the same hole. Wish I had twice as much....~Muir
