    .223, 80 Grain Berger VLD, 600 yard and what powder?

    If Varget is the go to powder for the 308 with 168 grain @ 600 yards, what is the top two powders recommended for the .223 at 600 yards using Berger 80 grain VLD using a tight chamber & a 1 in 8 twist. Thanks, Bill.

    In no order:
    • Varget;
    • IMR-4895;
    • H4895;
    • Reloder 15
    • N140;
    • N150;
    • N540;
    • IMR-4064.

    Top velocity is obtained using the slower powders (Varget, 4064, Re15, N150, and N540.) The 4895s give you great accuracy, but not the top speeds. Your call.

    Hope this helps.

    Looks like Varget and 4895 are the first one’s to try. Thanks.
