.223 Plink load

Looking for a real plinker. One that goes POP!
To many stray cats around here!

26.5grs of H-335 behind a 55gr bullet, is way to loud

Try a fast burning pistol powder i.e. W231, V320 or 310. The load should be in the low single digits.

.223 Plink load?

Any .223 Plink load will be A HOLE LOT MUCH for CATS.
I use 5.6 grains of UNIQUE with a 55 grain SP bullet. It gives me a 1/4 inch group at 25 yards.
