I'll start

Vmax Varmint round

AR15

24" Barrel

1/9 twist

LC Brass

25 grains H335

CCI 400 Small rifle primer

55 Grain Hornady Vmax ballistic tip

2.25" OAL

80* F

I developed this load for prairie dog hunting. It works very well out to 500 yards and can be used beyond, but you will be pushing it past it's real limits. You can alter the load's powder weight to 24.5 grains H335 which, in my barrel, gave slightly better accuracy but an effective range of 300 yards.

Ramshot Tac and Hodgdon Benchmark are the most accurate powders out of my 20" DPMS DCM barrel with 60gr Vmax or Ballistic tips. Both of them get good velocities, burn clean and meter well. 25.5 gr of Tac w/60gr Vmax and CCI 400 primers in LC brass is a great load in my gun. Benchmark seems to shoot better with the 60gr Ballistic tips. Varget shoots very well but is a pain to meter and you need to use a drop tube to get the powder to all go in the case.

I have been using some Sierra 69 gr. HPBT-Match bullets left over from my Colt H-Bar.

 

Winchester cases or Remington cases

Remington 7 1/2 primers

Sierra 69 gr. HPBT bullets

25 gr. 748 powder

 

Not one hole accurate in my Armalite 1:9 but it goes bang and uses up the surplus.

My load so far with the Hornady 60 gr. V-Max is 23.8 grs of Tac. Very accurate so far in 2 rifles, my AR and my sons Remington 700, both rifles with a 1-9 twist...

I will be trying to find a good load for our mini-14's also with lighter bullets.. mine doesn't shoot the 60's very good..

Dad has a great load with H335 for his 222 groundhog gun now we are going to see this winter if we can make a good load for 223. We want to be able to use the same powder in each.

 

 

I had been using H335 for bolt gun stuff, IMR4198 for AR stuff and H4895 for my 308. I ended up soing testing on all 3 guns with 3 different bullets and 5 different powders. H335 ended up giving me the best results for all 3. That was what I was hoping for.
