For .223 Rem.
Hornady 8th lists an oal at 2.250" for the 60 V-Max. They used Win cases and Win SR primers in their test in a Rem 700 26" barrel 1/12 twist.
Some common powders:
H335--start 20.1-2700FPS---max-22.9-3000
H322-- 20.7----------------23.1-3000
Tac---------21.6----------------24.7-3100 fps
Benchmark--21.7-----------------25--3100
Varget------21.7-----------------24.9-3000 fps
Win 748-----22.1-2700fps----max-25.5-3100fps
BL-C2-------23.1-----------------27.7-3200 fps

I always use the powder manufacturer's data over the bullet manufacturer's when available. Remember, it's not the specific bullet, it's the weight that's most important if trying to interpolate load data.

I have Sierra's book (as we mostly shoot their match bullets) but their data is ridiculously conservative- to the point of being useless for some of the calibers I load for. Their listed max load, is LESS than the minimum load listed by Hodgdon.

Research as many sources as you can, use common sense and always start low and work up.

Will do, I'm starting to load for my RRA ar-15. I have been gathering info from many places, also finding other people that have loaded the same power and bullet and using their info.

Also to be sure to include the cartridge next time.

Saying you need data for a 60gr grain .224" bullet, without including the cartridge, is like saying "I need mpg for a red car.".
