    1 , read it before , have you sorted the trigger or developed forearms like Popeye?

    2 , the title implies your new to reloading , which makes me wonder why start this thread if that's not the case ? Especially, since reloading principles are applicable regardless of chambering .

    I suspect that what you really wanted was advice on powder choice and load data to suit your rifle barrel . If that is the case , then GRT is your friend, it'll also tell you if you exceed manufacturers maximum c.o.l by that I mean what they deem to be the minimum length of bullet in the case neck .

    Regardless, I don't think I've posted any misinformation and was written with good intentions, so hopefully my previous post will be of use to someone who is a newbie .


    Please share your results , it's always good to see a conclusion.

    You are entirely correct. Title should have been ".223 newbie, questions"

    I haven't gone through each post in detail, but in a 1:8 / 16 inch 223 for non target (varmints) a 60 gn vmax is a good bet - something Hogdon CFE
    For target maybe 75 gn Hornaday
    Looking for TO-6 Trigger unit unmessed with or T0-6 kit for 34
