hey ya'll

new guy here, been loading my own now for about 7-8 years, done some relvover,pistol,rifle and hoping to move on to shotshell soon.

got some questions ya might be able to help me out with. wanting to shoot some Barnes Varmint Grenade 50 gr. .224 cal out of 26" bbl 1-9" twist .223 Rem.

got any suggestions as to powder, primer, brass combos? Barnes has data for the 36 gr. on their web site but not the 50's. i don't have their manual nor do any of my manuals have this newer bullet.

thanks in advance dagger dog

24.5 grains Hodgdon 335 and Winchester primer behind a 50 grain V-Max works good for me. This is a little low on the powder side.
