shooting .223 in a Savage 12 with a 26" varmit barrel. For accuracy only, what loads do you recommend for 50gr soft point bullets? Since I was able to buy several thousand 50gr Varmit Nightmare X-Treme sp's, I'm using Varget and IMR 3031 (only powders available locally) and looking for an accuracy sweet spot. cliffs: light bullet, varmit barrel, accurate .223 load?
