    Does anyone have Hornady load info for the .223 using 4198? I just bought a new Remginton 700 SPS along with a box of Hornady V-max 50 grain bullets and a pound of IMR 4198 and I'm looking for load info on these bullets.

    The Hornady website should have that info handy. Just Google Hornady:)

    The Hornady manual list the 50 grain V-max bullet with IMR-4198:

    19.5 grains = 2900 fps
    20.2 grains = 3000 fps
    20.9 grains = 3100 fps
    21.6 grains = 3200 fps
    22.2 grains = 3300 fps & is Max load.


    Rifle for testing was Rem 700 26" barrel
    Winchester cases
    Winchester WSR primer.
    Max C.O.L = 2.260"
    Max case length = 1.760"
    Case trim length = 1.750
