I like this one assuming you have a 1:10 twist or faster. It shoots very well in my rifle.

Nosler makes a 60gr partition. Not a 62 or 64.

Factory Ammo or handloads?

twist is the key, don't know of to many .223's with fast twist, assuming its a bolt

THIS ^^^^^^^^^^^

I reload them for 2 different ARs and they shoot extremely well. Most any factory twist rate will shoot them well. With the 22 caliber bullets you need to assure penetration, and most are designed for varmint use. The Partition is a good choice.

55 grain soft point gets the job done as good as any.

If you wait for a nice broadside shot.

Good point. And I think it goes without saying that when using smaller calibers shot placement is of critical importance.

Those would be my first choices, but based on what I've read and heard. No plan to pursue the idea, though.

If not a hand loader, I've had good accuracy with Fed Fusion 62 gr bonded. I think you may need a 1:10 twist to stabilize though.

Like right below the ear, in the center of the neck.

My favorite shot placement on does. No tracking, no meat damage.
