They are both home loads.
The .223 isnt mine.
I have a .222 mag, 22250,6.5x55 and 7mm.
I tend to use factory these days.
York guns had some federal premium loaded with nosler partition- they were £64.95 for 20.
I got trophy bonded bear claw for £45. :icon_eek:

Wow the federals are expensive! Posted Image
I take it you got the trophy bonded bear claws at a good price.
Would home loads not work out cheaper? I hope so because that's the route lm taking.

The bonded B.C. were the right money.
I do use handloads, but its a time issue I only really H.L for the 22250 and that is for ultimate accuracy, not price.

In handloads a 150gr partition.
Factory RWS 162 conepoints or any bonded bullet.
the limited expansion rounds leave less then a golf ball exit as the are a little "hard" for small deer.
