    H4350 with any good match type .224 bullet 68 grains and heavier.

    When I can get them on sale I load 69 .224 Barnes Match Burners. A 1.5 wide by 2 + inch 14 shot group @ 300 using IMR 4350 was recently shot.

    Primer brand and type: Sellier and Bellot

    Brass brand: Sorted by volume Winchester Bumped .002 trimmed, uniformed pocket and flashhole

    Powder Mfg. and type:Alliant RL-10x (might switch to RL-15

    Powder charge in grains:36.7

    OAL and seating depth:Seated .224 into case (don’t have any to measure at the moment)

    Velocity and barrel length: 4500ish average out a 22’ 1-14 Mossberg patriot.

    Comments: VERY HOTincrease load sloowwwly. Shoots .5moa. Turns squirrels into pink mist. That group is 200 yards (bench and bipod)and not cherry picked. THOSE THAT DO NOT DEVELOPE THIS LOAD WITH STANDARD RELOADING PROCEDURES DO SO AT THEIR OWN PERIL!

    I run this load in a standard Ruger M77 and it has performed very well. Groups hav e been to around.5 moa at 200. Twist rate is a 14 twist 26"

    40grain Vmax or Nosler Balistic works well also
    39.5 grains varget
    CCI 250 primers
    Various case manufacturers
    COL 2.350"
    Works plenty good for pdogs
