Anyone have a solid 223 load using IMR 8208 XBR, and the 50 gr zmax/vmax bullet?

I have shot a lot of IMR8208XBR through my 223's, In my rifles it works best with 62gr TSX and 65gr Sierra bt's. I have never got it to shoot that great with 50's

With 50 grainers my 2 favorite powders are Benchmark and N133

26 gr of 8208 shoots very well in two of my 223's.

Seems like 26g of damn near anything (H335, TAC, Benchmark, BLC2) shoots good in a .223.

I like CFE 223 powder, accurate, works fantastic in my Redding powder measure.
