60 gr Vmax Load

What load are you having good luck with using this bullet? Gun is a 16" 1:9 twist 5.56/223



I have 8208, H335, TAC, and Varget available.

I'm assuming this is for an AR, which I don't own. But I am using TAC and I have had good luck with accuracy with the hotter loads referencing the Hornady and Nosler books. You should work up the loads though.

I haven't tried the 60gr V-Max yet, but I would give Varget a try for starters. I just shot some 55gr V-Max I loaded with H335 and wasn't real excited about the results, I'll load some up with varget and try next. Although I am shooting a 20" 1-12.
