CCI BR 4 primers
27.0 grs Varget powder -- you should alway start lower and work your way up looking for signs of pressure.
Both have very close points of impact in my guns

Sierra makes a 52gr HP thats a known coyote killer also. I will take a HP or a spire point bullet over the plastic tipped bullets anymore. I never bought into the bullet splash theory until I seen it with my own eyes this last summer. I now like to shoot bullets that are a bit less fragile.

A faster twist should handle a heavier bullet.I think you are on the right track with your 62gr and 75gr.You might try Sierra's 65 gr,it's one of the bullets I use in a 1-9 twist 22-250 AI.

Furhunter, I'm going to have look into the spire point w/ cannelure. What is cannelure ? I also like Hornady. My rifle likes 62 gr. and up. I have a 1-9 twist and it appears that the heavy-er grains print better. Right now I'm shooting 62gr. and 75gr. bullets with 1/2" or less groups at 100 yds.
The cannelure is that indented ring around the bullet where one would seat it to if one were crimping ones ammo.
Those bullets are found here,

I currently use them in my H&R (New England) .223 with a heavy barrel out to 150 yards.

Send me a PM if you'd like a call made just for you
I can make you a call out of most old shell casings as a souvenir of a special hunt, a first kill etc.
20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !
