Thread: 50 Grain V Max Hornady .223 performance

  1. #1

    50 Grain V Max Hornady .223 performance

    Any reloader/handloaders on the forum use the above heads? I've been using them for a while with 26.5 Grains of Varget and they really perform. Any one think the charge is too much? Will i get more accurate results increasing the powder? The cases have always been stable with no over pressure signs.

    Anyway if you have a similar load i would love to hear your thoughts?

    Regards

    Carl

    If it works why change it? Having said that, i have had a lot of success with 52gr Amax but going to try the new 53Gr Vmax due to its good BC

    Hi
    All my reload's for .223-1/12 twist is with "VihtV N133"
    I have use 40gr, 50gr & 55gr V-MAX very accurate and Charlie doe's not like them one bit
    Looking back my record's 50gr V-MAX was 26gns/N133

    I have been using 40gr V-MAX for the past year and the result's are really good, very accurate bug holes @ 100yard's-- 26.5 of N133 @ 3975fps.
    Lapau brass & CCI Primer's no sign's of pressure "but start lower and work up" as my load's are close to "Max"

    Regard's Wullie.
    Your a long time dead, enjoy every day like it's your last!!!

    This is a VERY interesting thread for me. I am just,TODAY, looking for a load for my new .223. I have bought Varget powder and 40grn BT nozler heads. Hodgdon site says that 28grns is the max load. Has anyone used this powder and grn heads and what was there best load for accuracy?
    Thanks in advance.

    Have you ever asked for "Heads" when you required "Bullets" in a real gunshop?.... if they served you with "Heads",........ then I reckon most dyed in the wool reloaders would probably give this "shop" a miss!

    I usually confer the title of F.E.O. on those who describe bullets as "Heads"
