New Technology for the TCP - Part II
Permalink  
 


I didn't want to be outdone by Bob's new sound distributing turntable, so I countered him with some sound suppression technology.... for my rifles!!smile  I took possession of the new toy on Friday afternoon, and killed 2 coyotes, and several skunks and raccoons within the first 18 hours of ownership.  Model is the Advanced Armament 762SD, this may be a real game changer for the TCP's non-crow pursuits.  I know Shane is going to drool over this!

What specific cartridge are you using? Handloads? If so, which bullet?

I am always curious as I load my own ammo for my AR15 varmint rifle.
My load is 24 grains of IMR-3031, CCI primer with a 50 grain Nosler BT. Very tight groups with this cartridge.

Mainehunt: Thank goodness there are so many good loads for the fine .223. It shoots so well with almost anything you can jam into the case! While I do not shoot an AR... I do have .223's.. bolt guns. After trying H335 and a couple of other powders, I settled on WW748... 27 grains behind a Nosler or Hornady 40 grain BT or Vmax at about 3550 fps... is a wonderfully accurate load with very light recoil ( important if you need to see every bullet impact ). I use standard WW primers and neck size only...which is a great time saver  vs. full length sizing for the AR. I shoot prairie dogs with mine and an occasional crow and coyote.

MH, I was using 55gr. Midsouth Varmint Nightmares over 26 grains of Varget. Its a very cheap load, and plenty accurate for small game inside of 200 yards. When I want to reach out a little further, I switch to an a different AR (one with a heavier barrel and higher magnification scope), and to 55gr Nosler Ballistic Tips over 26.5 grains of Varget.

Hi MH,

Not to disagree with the long range superstars Skip and Texas Matt, but to give you another option that works very well in my RRA Coyote Carbine and Les Baer Super Varmint - 25 grains of Benchmark behind a Hornady 55 V-Max with a Winchester Small Rifle primer in Winchester brass.  I have just brought a supply of the new Hornady 53 V-Max bullets that are optimized for the faster twist .223 barrelx and look forward to some laod development with this new bullet that is featured in their Superformance Varmint product line.

Regards,

GB: No disagreement here! The .223 is so versatile tons of powder/bullet combos are quite effective with the size and range of the target the most important variable to which I know you agree. When light recoil, multiple shots and devastating results at moderate ranges (inside 300 yards) on small targets are the order of the day, lighter bullets are indicated. A 53 grain bullet is 30% heavier than a 40 grain = somewhat more felt recoil. I tend to start flinching... after many rounds of more recoil than I would like! Old nerves, to be sure.

Hi Skip,

Your statement that the .223 is very flexible in its loading options is quite true.

I clearly need to do more experimenting with those 40 grain V-Max's in terms of developing accurate loads.  To date, I have had the best accuracy results with the 55 grain V-Max's in .223 and .22-250.  Recently, I did develop a good load with the 50 grain V-Max in .22-250 - using 36 grains of Varget.

The .22-250 is awesome on crows, as this one from last week demonstrates.

Regards,
