most accurate overall powder in .223

br*nden270 said: I have never used anything but Benchmark in my .223's but in my quest for ultimate accuracy I have started to consider alternatives. (benchmark is very accurate but there may be room for improvement) What would you experts consider the powder(s) most likely to produce the tightest groups in any given .223. with a 52 grain match bullet. I realize this is highly subjective and individual guns like different loads but if you had to bet the farm on one or two powders........ what would you load? Thanks Brenden

B*omer said: For top accuracy and ease of loading, Win 748 would be my first choice.

ch*ckwagon said: I like 748 and H322 is alos good.

*hlsy said: I just finished trying a half dozen powders with heavier bullets. (69 gr SMK's, Berger 70gr VLD's etc) The best powders were 748, BL-C(2), and Benchmark in that order. Hope that helps.

sc*tt_r said: All guns are different so there is no universal powder that gets the best groups. When I look for powder there are usually 3 to 4 that work very well for most guys, I then try em. There are so many other factors in accuracy i.e yours cases, bullets, wind, ect.... With the .223 Ive had luck with Varget and Benchmark.

Thanks Brenden What is the best overall road vehicle? What is the best overall fish lure? I think that seeking "best" is the makings of a good fish story.:p

D*gleg said: What is the best overall fish lure? Gotta be the jig. You can jig it, cast it, troll it, hang it under a bobber, rip it, flip it, and fish vertically. There is no species of fish or depth of water that can't be taken with the right jig. For vehicles, you are on your own.:D

*crashb said: On the whole, H322.

KDX said: I've never used anything other than Benchmark for .223, but that is the only caliber I have loaded for and the results were excellent. I had some nice groups and the fact that they weren't nicer was do to me being behind the trigger.;)

sm*k_daddy said: A 52 gr bullet. Try H335 or W748.

s*skcop said: W748 loads like poop through a goose and has always been amongst the most accurate and consistent powder for me.

t*grr said: I tried Varget and then came across a recipe with 23.5 grains of IMR4064 played with it a bit and I am now getting 1/4" groups at 300 and 2 inch groups at 500 yards (calm day)with Nosler CC 69 grain bullets. I use a Savage 12LRPV 1in9 26" barrel. I found the recipe on Hodgdon website.

R*ger No.1 said: Benchmark ended up the best powder my for my .223 Ruger 77 Target/Varmint using Nosler 50 & 55 gr. BT's.
