My favorite load and powder and the most accurate in my rifle is the 40 grain Hornady V-Max and 20 grains of RelOder 7. One hole groups.

And I was able to find me some Gunpowder and primers when i went to the big city this past week. Not a big selection of anything, but they did have this Reloader 7, as Cottontop suggested. Any other small rifle powder wasn't to be seen.

IMR-3031-22.5Gr under a 40 Gr Hornet Bullet,yes I know one should not use Hornet Bullets in the 222 Remington,so I had to try them they work just fine for me.

100 yds 3 shots .354 clover my best shots ever!

I use IMR-3031 from 222 to 45-70 and all in-between calibers.

I just finished up making my crude but effective powder dipper to start to reload my 222 brass. A few more days I'll be trying it out and sighting in the scope. Whoot! Whoot!
