    Title says it all...

    I need a loading data for Accurate 2520 & .223 Remingtong with Hornady 55g FMJ

    I know some cranky old bastard is going to say, "Check your manual."

    1) I'm at work, not at home. My one manual is at home and the 2nd resource I check is the manufacturer's websie.
    2) Accurate's website doesn't have anything for .223 Remington/Accurate 2520 & 55g FMJ.
    3) My friend just bought 8 lbs of 2520
    4) My friend just bought 100 55g Hornady .224 bullets

    Can anyone help? I'm trying to get data together before we start the process later tonight.

    My fourth edition Accurate load booklet shows 23.5 to 26 grains Accurate 2520. This booklet is OLD but the information on other loads has worked for me before. The bullet is a WW FMJ 55grs, BR-4 Fed primer, 2650 to 2900 FPS. Hope this helps!

    Perfect. Thank you. My Lee manual said Start: 24.8 Max:27.5

    I went with 25.0.

    That puts me right where I need to be.

    Thanks.
