Hi,

I am looking to reload .223 with the 64gr Winchester Power Point bullets I already have and the H322 I already have.

The Hogdon manuals and website do not offer a load with a 64gr bullet.

This is from there website:

Bullet Weight (Gr.) Manufacturer Powder Bullet Diam. C.O.L. Grs. Vel. (ft/s) Pressure Grs. Vel. (ft/s) Pressure
60 GR. HDY V-MAX Hodgdon H322 .224" 2.250" 22.0 2873 40,300 CUP 23.5 3063 49,800 CUP
63 GR. SIE SP Hodgdon H322 .224" 2.200" 20.0 2672 38,100 CUP 22.0 2862 48,400 CUP
69 GR. SIE HPBT Hodgdon H322 .224" 2.235" 21.0 2746 40,500 CUP 23.0 2932 49,400 CUP
70 GR. SPR SP Hodgdon H322 .224" 2.140" 19.0 2515 37,500 CUP 23.0 2962 51,200 CUP

Should I interpolate between the 63 and 69 gr bullet and assume anything between 20.0 and 21.0 grains will be OK?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
-J

Edited to add: After a lot more searching on google, adjusting the query parameters for the 20th time, I found this thread: http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=6&f=42&t=272821 which answers my question.

Thanks!
