    Anybody used this? I found data in a Hornaday manual. Dirty? Pressure? Consistent? I got components that need to be used. Just in a clankamatick for fun.

    I just googled norma powder 223 remington and norma load data comes up showing it as a great choice for 50-60 grain bullet's. Norma really makes incredible products. I would like to try it myself now. 556 is just a little hotter than 223 so if you want to load to 556 pressure just add 1/2- 1 grain more than the listing for 223. You can see this is how it works by looking at the ramshot load data , they show both 223 and 556 data.

    Sorry. yes Norma 200. Loading .223 in a 5.56 chamber just for the kids to chase tin cans at 50 to 150 yds. 23.0 looks like a good starting point.. thoughts? 55 gr. Hornaday Z/Max were cheap.

    Yes it looks like 23 is a good starting point .i would also load some at 23.5 and some at 24. Wear safety glasses when testing. The 24 load would be more like 556 pressure. See which load works best. Im betting on the 24 as being best. Let me know.
