    I really having nailed down a load. Any amounts of the Benchrest extrudeds (H322, XBR) have shot fine. Other guys have gotten more accuracy out of this bullet than we have, and they posted their load info in the 62 gr HPBT thread in this forum.

    Sounds good. I plan on picking up some of the 62HPBT and have a good bit of ar-comp and XBR powder on hand. My plan is to do similar 62gr for low cost stuff and 69gr or 77gr for longer ranges.

    This will be my starting point in reloading .223

    I've not had great luck with XBR powder for light weight pills. Accuracy wasn't horrible but it shines with the heavier weight bullets. I just couldn't get the velocity with the lightweight loads.

    A powder that nobody seems to use is old school H4895. I've seen some killer groups with it and for pure precision work it's hard to beat, but I load on a progressive and other powders meter much better.

    O/P if you are serious and shooting big matches handloading is definitely the way to go. You get control and can tailor your loads if you choose to at modest cost. Not so much with factory.
