I bought a bunch of different .223 Ammo today. I'm looking for a good varmint round that will make the woodchucks explode. I know of computer programs that will calculate bullet rise and drop if you product the ballistic coefficient and stuff like that.

I bought Winchester Supreme .223 with a 40gr bullet and ballistic silvertip. Will my 1x9" 16" barrel stabilize those light bullets?

I also got some Federal Premium 55gr Sierra Gameking BTHP

And finally, some Black Hills V-Max with a 50 gr bullet. I suspect that will do fine in my 1x9 barrel. But Black Hills does not supply any ballistics data on their web page. Anyone know a source? Thanks!

Yes. And I would probably stick with this stuff for the smaller varmints.

This is my choice in a varmint round, as I tend to go after the slightly larger stuff such as coyotes. It offers pretty good performance and accuracy.

This may me one of the best do everything varmint loads out there. It is also usually exceptionally accurate. Yes, it should shoot fine in a 1/9 twist so long as your particular rifle likes the load. Sorry, don't have any ballistic data for this round. -Charging Handle
