slow loads for .223

Post by Reload3006 on Tue Oct 04, 2011 9:22 am

We were in the topic of barrel twist for certain bullet weights. Here is my problem. I got all the stuff to make 22 rim fire .224 bullets ... but because they are too light my 1:9 savage throws them every where. Does any one have a slow load for a 55gr 223?
I think i need to be pushing them around 2500fps to jive with my twist... anyone?

I was going to mention trailboss reduced loads....but it only shows velocity of 1074fps using 4.0gr....a little too slow.

I can't think of a good load off hand but If I had my QL working I could find something in the ballpark.

H322 or h4198 looks like it could fit the bill....Minimum fps for a 55gr bullet is just over 2800fps. reduce the load about 1 to 1-1/2 grains might land it right in the range you are needing.

If you will look around there is a subsonic load for the 223. I jest don't rember where I seen it.

I like IMR 4064 for the 55 grain load there is some play with the charge you can work with .

If you find that change load and that does not work you may change the round its self it may be your rifle does not like the round its self .

22 to 224

Post by ar3006 on Mon Dec 03, 2012 3:01 pm

Hi,
I've been making 224 out of 22 for some time now, I've had very good success at the range using IMR 4895, powder using
22.5 gr with a CC small rifel primer, I get a half each group at 50 yards using my Ruger m77 MarkII, i have not had any problems with pressure, I fired five or six hundred rounds at the range.

I hope this helps.

Does the trailboss loads cycle ok thru the Ar ? this is kinda what i have been looking for. bushytail hunting.

It probably wouldn't cycle correctly without modifying the gun. But you never know...

Try Winchester 748 or Accurate 2520 The 748 would be my first choice. I have used it in bolt guns 223 for years it will not burn up a barrel.By the way they were 3 different Savages. You can go on the internet and put down SSL and you will 4 or 5 wed sites to look at.
