Best 40gr V max load for .223 Ruger M77 Target Model

Hello all,

What is your favorite .223 40 grain v max load?

My gun has a 1:12 twist 26" barrel. It shoots 40 grain v max Fiocchi great. My supply is running a little low and no one has any. My only complaint with the Fiocchi is that temperature has a big effect on how it shoots.

I have never reloaded before but I put in an order for some 40 grain v max bullets the other day. I have friends that reload and they said they would help me.

I'm just not sure what power to try. I do all of my shooting at 100 yards in local rifle shoots. And I would like a load that is temperature stable.

Any input would be great. Thank you in advance,

Ryan

I load the 40 gr V-Max in RP brass, Rem 7 1/2 primer, 27.5 grns Ramshot Exterminator. I get 3750 FPS. Use for P-Dogs here in AZ. 100 yds? Heck I regularly kill from 200 - 300 yds all day. I shoot a Rem 700VS, 26". Exterminator meters through powder measure perfectly.

I've had excellent results using W748, Varget, and Benchmark. Those are some great performing little pills.

Win 748 was the benchrest shooters powder of choice in the 223, for a VERY long time; with good reason.
