    I am trying to find a good powder for the Hornady 223 round
    The bullet is a 224 die 75 grain BTHP out of a 1-8 24 in barrel
    Has anybody used them and what powder have you had any luck with

    Not saying I could do it every shot, 5-6 out of 10 maybe, real close on the others

    Don't know about 1:8, but my Savage 12FV has 1:9 barrel and I have some really great 100yd groups using 25gr of H335. Waiting to get out and test them in my Bushmaster which also has a 1:9 barrel.
