Barnes load data needed…please

Looking for Ideas or actual load data for .223 (.224 dia) Barnes 62 grain TSX BT, I prefer CFE223 powder data if possible. I was able to find data using Varget powder. Thanks

The one manufacturer with fresh 223 data for Barnes UNLEADED bullets is ACCURATE:
That means you would need one of their powders. I just received a pound of AA-2520 which will give best velocities with heavy bullets in 223 at max bolt-gun loads: using the 62 gr TSX:
2520 62 BAR TSX 26.2 3,070 29.1 3,377 60,894 2.255
That is 311 fps more than the fastest load above (which isn't Varget)
