Of those two I have best results with H335 and 69 gr BTHP bullets. As good or better is BLC2, and my SIL had best if all accuracy results with IMR8208XBR.

I've never had much luck with Varget in .223, though I shoot with a guy who swears by it in a Savage varmint rifle. Of the two you list, I've had good result with H335. I also use CCI 400 primer only - don't know how much diffrence that makes.
