    55gr or 60 gr v max load

    Hi,
    normally use a 55gr vmax on 24gr varget
    through a remi 700 1 in 12 twist .223

    however, just bought a new remi 700 with a 1 in 9 twist 20" barrel .223 And was thinking it may prefer the 60gr head

    any one using similar load in same rifle ??

    cheers

    Good to know...
    i haven't shot it yet, so, I was going to gets mixed batch of loads, and try to work something out..
    iwould be over the moon if I don't have to change... Makes it really easy for batches !!

    My 1 in 9 twist .223 shoots 55 grain hornady SP's (#2266 or #2265) a dream over 20.5 grains of N120

    Sorry it's upside down (bloody iPhone) it was shot at 100 meters and the squares are 1/2"
