Somehow I have missplaced the load suggestions you all have given in the past for loads using the high B.C. Hornady 53 grain V-Max bullets.
I am new to these bullets myself.
Its the winter "reloading" season here in SW Montana and I have a 223 Varminter that I think NEEDS to shoot this bullet.
My Rifle (Remington 700 SPS-V) has a 26" barrel and a Leupold 6.5x20 variable scope on it.
I picked this Rifle up a while back and it has only shot Berger 50 grainers to date.
These Bergers are accurate bullets, but are PRICEY, and the Hornady has a higher B.C (.290).
And I think the Prairie Dogs and Ground Squirrels should really plop when hit with these V-Max bullets - even when these Varmints are "way out there".
Any load suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

VG I'd say 25.5 gr of Benchmark should get you real close.

If you won't help, I suggest you have the grace to step back and let some one in who will....

I don't load the 53 Hornady Vmax so I am glad to allow the question to stand for another to answer.

Insults are not answers.

Well I'm not that familiar with the idiot, so I'll bite. Three of my .223's shoot 25.5 H335 very well with that bullet.

VG...

I shot it with the New AR Comp powder and it did real well... actually I had some problems getting that bullet to shoot as well as the 50s and 55 V Maxes shoot....

the powder performs best at a higher pressure.. at least in my rifles...

in a Ruger VT in 223, factory tube, I loaded 26 grains of
AR Comp.. and seated the bullet out as far as the magazine allowed...that was worked up...

their data listed max as 25.3 with a 52 grain A Max... with an MV of 3400 plus in a 24 inch barrel...

the Ruger has a generous throat...it gave a 5 shot cloverleaf at 100 yds...my rifle runs a 6 x 24 Weaver on top...

Seafire: Thanks a bunch thats what I am looking for - a new powder - something I have not tried and maybe something that is not to temperature sensitive for my upcoming Priaire Doggin.
And that load will be perky enough to get a high splat factor going.
I am just intrigued by the high B.C. for the weight.
Thanks again.

GeorgeS3: I have a Remington XR-100 that REALLY likes H 335 powder - but I am not sure if that powder is one of the temperature stable powders (EXTREME?) or not.
Thanks.

Bowman44: Out of all my 223's I have never tried Varget - will give it a try this winter as well.
The Federal 205M (match) primers are the only primer I use in small Rifle applications.
I really like them and always stay well supplied with them.

Ackman: The "penis envy" post supplied by someone below is absolutely appropriate in your case!
He-he.
And for the record I currently own and shoot 11 (eleven) Varmint Guns in 223 Remington caliber - not 27 (twenty seven).
9 (nine) of them indeed are Remingtons and one is a Ruger and one was made by Thompson Contender!
The only "blah blah" around here is your worthless and infantile post.
You add nothing to normal conversation so indeed you are "nothing" - and thats a shame.
Oh, I almost forgot to correct your ignorantass on the scopes as well - on my 11 (eleven) 223's I do indeed incorporate 7 (seven) Leupold scopes and I also use 2 (two) Burris scopes, 1 (one) Weaver and 1 (one) Nikon!
So you are not just worthless and infantile you are ignorant as well.
INDEED... long live the 223 Remington!

Well...varmint guy....such a pompous blowhard, you're an obvious parody and too self absorbed to even realize it. Always bragging numbers - now it's 11 of this, 9 of that, 7, 2, 1, 1. You've bragged 27 at sometime or other.

With your little buddy OSB and "penis envy" wish. Tweedledee and Tweedledumb. Something going on there......you two he-men make a good couple. And you so often bragging numbers, it's more like "penis compensation." Indeed.
