    The only bullets I shoot from my .223 bolt rifle, is Hornady 52 gr and 53 gr BTHP's, I've gotten some astounding results. YMMV

    I always had good results with Vmax's of 50 or 55 grain weight. Or the 53 grain Sierra Match Kings.

    Just a suggestion. You don't need to do it.


    Well, considering there is no "Ammo" forum... I guess this will have to do... http://www.thehighroad.org/forumdisplay.php?f=14&

    Sub-Forums : Ammunition, Gear, and Firearm Help.....where is the ammo forum ?

    And sometimes people try some factory loads just to see how accurate they are. Then attempt to assemble similar loads with comparable bullets, if they like the results. And after all, aren't factory loads handloads that are just assembled in bulk, by someone else?
    Back to the OP question, I have had very good results with both the Nosler and Hornady tipped bullets in both 40 and 50 gr weights mostly with barrels having 1 in 12" twist rates, but even my M&P 15 Sport's 1 in 8" shoots them with very good accuracy at 100 yards. Mostly with Ramshot TAC and Accurate 2015 powders.
