    223 pills wanted.

    Hi all, after scoring a nice young rifle for a mate and it coming with dies I figured I'd load a batch before I hand it over.
    What are good to use? I know what to buy factory wise and will buy him a box or two also but want to have a quick tutu.
    Do any of you have any pills that are sitting I can buy?
    Uses will include rabbits, magpies and the odd goat. O and targets.

    Give nznoddy a pm on here and buy some of his 55gr Hornady soft points. I think he still has some left.
    Awesome cheap bullet.

    Sorry mate. I should have linked him like Nibblet did.

    I have had a fair few 223s and all of them shot the Hornady 55 well, so they should hopefully go good for you as well.

    BMII or 2206H.

    BMII works best for me.

    speer pill and 2206 powder. the 50 and 52gn hollow points are particularly good at task you describe have shot just about everything with the wee .223 awesome wee rifles.
