SGK 65gr in .223 rem range test

I took out the AR-15 today with a bullet suggested by a rep from Sierra. I loaded all my loads with H335 in .3 gr increments. I started @ 23.3 grains and worked up to 25.5, I used the Game King 65 grain. My tightest grouping was @ 24.5 grains, 25.1 gave me a fair grouping also. Attached is a pic from the 24.5 load. I want to say thanks to everyone who posted their pet load for the .223 (in a previous post), which gave me the idea to try the H335.

I use AA2230 behind that bullet and it works great. I was going to suggest that you try it, until I looked at your grouping. Heck, just stay with the H335. And just to mention it, I do use the H335 behind the Nosler 40 gr Ballistic Tip and it's a great shooter.

I was going to re-test my Nosler varmageddon 55's with the H335, If I can pull off a group like that one, Im happy as a pig in mud!
