My dad has a progressive loader and has recently purchased some 223 dies. He did this for me as he does not own a 223. I found some once shot lake city brass that has been cleaned, deprimed, and reprimed with CCI primers. I plan on buying 3k of them from this company along with 3000 55gr Hornady FMJBT bullets. All I need is the powder and the options are mind boggling to me. I am looking for an inexpensive clean powder for these rounds. 3200FPS or thereabouts is fine. I don't need anything spectacular. I am just looking for an inexpensive alternative to the cheap steel ammo. I will be doing plinking out on some land and some at the range so while match accuracy is not paramount, I don't want to hit the bullseye on bench 10 while I am on bench 5. Any powder recommendations? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
