    I was out with my 1:8 .223 working up a load for this bullet this morning. I had excellent results using load data found on the 6BR site. Using book OAL I had best results at 23.4 & 26.4. The latter was doing 3150 fps in my T3 Varmint and both grouped 0.25" @100 yds. 26.4 was compressed and booked as max load, no pressure signs though. CCI 400 primer and Black Hills brass.

    Better results than with the 75gn A-Max which, although better BC was nowhere near on accuracy.

    Great starting point tho, i loaded some with 23.4 and got half inch groups. will work around this point and see how i get on. thanks for the advice.
