Went CRAZY buying bullets, when some became available. Grabbed 500 in 35 grn..224 Dia. Figured I'd use them for "plinking fodder". My books start at 40 grn. Any body worked with this bullet? It's a "second " Amax type blemished., from Midway. I 'll do the load work up, but has any one got a "recipe"?

Thanks for that, Bryce. It's a start. I thought ,maybe, some one had worked with them, in an AR. I know they can be "pressure sensitive". Hoping I could save some "work-up time". I can also just use them, in my bolt gun.

i have had a bunch of those tiny 35gr vaporize at around 80 yds down range. Seems the 223/5,56 pushes them too fast so I loaded them in my 5,7x28 and no more problems, have fun and i hope this helps.
