I am trying to narrow down, without trying a bunch, powders for .223, 55 grain and lighter bullets. Will be used in a T/C Encore, never in a semi auto. So far I am looking at 748, H335 and IMR 4198.
I was going to get a pound of each to figure out what shoots best in my rifle, then go from there. I still don't understand burn rates in relation to caliber and bullet weight very well...
Am I missing any obvious ones? I know a particular rife will have a preference, but at $20+ a pound, I want to try to stick with three, maybe four, different ones.
I'd appreciate any advice or experiences. I am not looking for stupid velocity, primarily accuracy. Thanks.
