Choices in 223 for short range 50-200 yards offhand practice and vermin hunting
About to order some more 223 bullets for use between 50-200 yards out of my HBAR as practice ammo on a small bore A23/5 target.
The Hornaday 52 HPBT has been a nice bullet so far.
I see that Nosler makes the Midway Dogtown bullets.
Has anyone tried them out?
$55 for 500
I got a box of these and have been really imperesed with them for what they are. I'm putting them in front of BL-C2 and they've given me 3/4 MOA at 100 yards and minute steel plate out to about 300.
I bought 3K of these and they perform well in my 17.7 " .223 Wylde AR.
I'm loading 27.5 gr CFE223 with a moderate crimp at the cannelure - gives about 2950 to 3000 in this rifle according to my magneto speed - bit of a warm load. Usually 3/4-1" at 100 yds
The 50gr v-max slugs work great for me with H-335 powder.
