Mine is a 16" 1:9", free-float hand guard. It'll just be a simple three shot, 100 yard group. These step in .2 gr increments, but I think I'm going to skip in .4 gr and fill in with .2 gr where needed. These ain't cheap bullets! Should get to shoot them tomorrow.

Are those 60s? Our guns shoot the 60s very well. Haven't tried H335 but Benchmark works wonders. If memory serves we shoot 24.5 grains. They aren't as accurate as the VMaxs but they're plenty good to hunt with.

My experience with them is that with a little help ( which you are doing..) They'll shoot an inch out of a good barrel...which as someone else said, plenty good for hunting. They also perform very well on target.

1-ish MOA is all I'm looking for 300 yards, and in. Never Have developed a load for my AR-15. Figured it was high time I figured out this one as well as 55 gr Sierra Game Kings.

SGK 55gr. Mine likes CFE 223 at 26.6 grains. Varget worked well but I wanted to load this on a Dillon press.

I went with 60g Vmax over 24.3 Varget. I can get less than inch at 100 out of RRiver but 20" barrel. Havent really tested out past 100 as use this as varmit rifle at my place and never really have greater than 100 yard shot. No press, hand trickle all

I'm getting 1/2" out of 65 gr SGK over 24 gr H4895.

I have eight pounds of H-335, so that's what I'll be using.








For a long time!

For a time I used AA2230 behind 65 gr GKs, but I've gone to H335 for 40, 55, and 65 grainers. As for 60 gr Partitions, I haven't shot them for a while and forget what powder I used. Never did get great accuracy with the Partitions. I did a bit better with the 64 gr Nosler BSBs, and get real nice groups with that 65 gr Sierra GK.

I shoot the 55 gr Sierra GKs in my 220, using the same powder IMR4064 and load that I use to shoot the 55 gr Nosler BTs. I hear they are a tougher bullet than the BT, and more suitable for pigs, but I haven't tested that out yet.

The 65gr SGKs are really hard to beat. Excellent bullet for deer, hogs, etc. I load mine with a stiff dose of Benchmark.

You'll be fine with the H335. I only went with Benchmark because I was also loading for a 204 and it loved the stuff. Saved stocking another powder. You should be able to easily get the Partitions under MOA.

My absolute "go to" bullet for deer sized game in the .22 CFs is the Barnes TTSX...55 grainer. Have had nothing but excellent results, and lots of them. That said, I can't quit fooling with gun stuff and have been trying some conventional cup-n-core bullets lately, with good results. I am interested to see so much love here for the Sierra GK in 65 grain. Ive heard good things elsewhere about it as well.
I have used the 63 Gr. sierra SMP to good effect and like it a lot because the 'short fat' bullet stabilizes well with most twists....but I might have to give these 65 GKs a try!

Rifle lives in the truck. It's a back-up, really, since it's rare I forget my 6.5 Creedmoor, or 7mm-08, or LR-308. Feral hogs is the point of the load, in this AR-15. I got into a sounder with it over a year ago, and was shooting ammo I didn't load, with some kind of spire points. Shooting them from 70-250 yards, hogs were getting hit, but not falling.

Plus, I just wanted to see how well I can make this bullet shoot, in this rifle smile
