    Have heard that it’s really good stuff. I do enjoy loading my own though and the satisfaction and the tune-ability you get from handloads

    For target work that may be true, my best hand load 26 gr 2206h and a 55 gr sierra gameking shoots .4 moa and the belmont .7. For hunting within the 223s ethical range the belmont is way accurate enough and not that much more expensive than the sierra projectiles alone.

    +1 for bm2. Done well in the 3 223s I have used it in, with 55gr pills.
