    Advice and discussion please 52 gn HP/.222 rem/Varget.

    I have inherited some Hornady 52 gn Hp target and expanding, has anyone driven these with Varget?

    Advice, discussion and data please?

    Or should I pass them on as don't feel inclined to expand on suitable powder stocks just to experiment.

    When I had a 222 I used to drive 50grn HP's with 25grn of Varget
    AT THE AGE OF 50 I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO GROW OLD F***ING DISGRACEFULLY

    It's a .222 Remington: What is there to discuss?? Load it, shoot it. Should be accurate, no? I've never owned an inaccurate .222. Hodgdon's web site will have data.~Muir

    Cheers both.

    It certainly does not like the PPU factory 50 gn SP, the best I can do is a 7" group of 20 shots at 100 yds.

    However it will shoot just sub Moa with Remington factory 50 gn but no joke at 23.50/ box of 20.

    I use VV powders as they work out cheaper (75/kilo as opposed to 40-42 per 454g)

    N133 works well but the load data gives a compressed load in my Norma brass
    does the job
    about to christen the 52gr ammo on an unlucky fox this evening!!
