Great Tango, just what I'm looking for from the reloading membership!! What rifle are you shooting the .223 through?

Hey, I use them 210 grain Berger Long Range Target Boat Tail bullets in my .300 Win. Mag. 1000 yard rifle. Also use same batch Nosler brass. I use IMR 4350 and as my muzzle velocity on my gradually worked up loads is just around 2960 + fps. I wont be giving details on how much powder I use to achieve this. It is slightely off the upper limit given in most reloading manuals. The reloading manuals I have (Nosler, Sierra, & Speer) dont list 210 grain bullet reloading data. So I had to work this load up from safe to just past the brink of safe (excessive case bulging) and then back down to what I have. So far works well and the brass is tolerating it but when I get the rifle back from the gunsmith (next week or so I hope) I'll have to go back to the start where I was using the rifle near stock, and work the load up for this rifle again. I predict that I will be using less powder as the Kreiger barrel I had put on it is longer and the rifleing twist rate is different than the stock barrel. Also the reciever has been blueprinted, and the bolt has been reworked as well. So this rifle will act very much differently to the ammunition than it did when it was pretty much in stock configuration.

These are in my Remington 700 VLS with a Callahan firing pin and Timney Trigger set to 1.5#. Some days she has her laminate stock on some days she wears her cheapo SPS varmint stock.



I still haven't found a good load for my 308 most will produce .5" in my gun but I want it smaller than that.

Just a note on my VV N133 load It is listed above VV max but it is safe and shows no signs of pressure in my gun. DO NOT EVER use this load in your gun.

In the next year or two I am going to replace that barrel with a Kreiger SS Rem varmint contour with a 1-10" twist 223 AI. I am going to have the action reworked and install a Jewell trigger set to about 12 to 14 oz.

I currently reload for the following

45acp
223 Rem
308 Win
30-06
6.5x57mm


My 45acp loads are very simple.

200gr Rainer RN
5.5gr Titegroup
CCI- 300 Primer
Win case
Vel is about 950 fps.

This is a clean burning round that is light on recoil and good for long (400+Round) days on the range.
