I just picked up some 64 gr Winchester Power Points to load for my .223.

Does anyone have a pet load they would like to share?

Thanks,

Ken

Ken/Bottom Gun: I loaded some 64gr. PPs over 26 grs Varget for 2700 fps out of a 16" barreled AR15. Grouped 1.5 inches shooting at 100 with an Aimpoint M2. Considering Federal Match does 1 inch out of the same gun, I'm happy. When the subzero weather subsides, I plan to bump the load up a bit. I'm looking for 2750-2800 out of the shorty with the Winnie bullet. We'll see, when I get some 30F or better weather.
