    Thanks for all of the replys everyone. The only reasons that I'm thinking of getting away from BL-C2 are the pressure increases that I have seen in hot weather and the little lower velocity. Thanks again!

    I have an AR and a thirteen yr old grand son any bulk bullet I find on sale and any cheap but suitable powder I have on hand or can find on the cheap. Man that kid likes to shoot!�� D.C.

    I have a load of 60 grain Vmax pushed by 23.8 grains of varget, ignited by a rem 7 1/2 at 2.25. Awesome thing is that I tried it in another 223 rifle I bought and it was a perfect load for it too!

    55 grain lead tip and old AA2200 pulled powder 1:12 twist 24 gn most acurate thru Encore at 100 yds, went up to 25.5 and group started to open up. Backed down to 23 gn and opened, so settled on 24 gn with around 3250 FPS best groups @ 100 yds, killed many a deer with this load and Bullet comb. They generally drop when hit in the right spot. The bullet never goes thru tho all the way so not a good blood trail if not hit right. I just take my time and aim good and get meat.
