Hi

 

I use VihtV N133, Hornady 40gr V Max for Foxes and they are very accurate and devastation when they hit!

 

VihtV N133, Sierra Gamekings 55gr for Roe Deer and they also very accurate do a very good job.

 

Have tried a few powders but VihtV N133 get's my :good:

Cheers guys may give them a try, not gone as light as 40g in the 223 before but might be worth looking at cheers

What is the accuracy like with the sierras.

 

under 2" @ 100yds here. in all calibres. free standing, or gate post, better at ranges on pod & set distance, 1" under with right re-load

My rifle is very fussy its not very keen on nosler but seems to quiet like Hornady and Berger seems to like the cheap stuff! which is handy !!!.

Oh i like that very good, i have read a bit about the 52 and 53 grain bullets saying how good they are and the reloader 7 and 15 powders proof is in the pudding aye.

They are good, initially I wanted to use the heavier bullets but the barrel twist on my gun is too slow, so tried 55 grain v max then the 52 grain hollow points, and settled with them I traded in my 222 which I wasn't happy about, but feel better now I got the 223 something like, been told to try varget powder, which will get a try at some point

you should try reloader 15 i am told its very good for 223. also H335. what twist rate is your barrel mine is a Sako with a 1/12 twist and it limits me alot.
