why reduce the load when there is the barnes varmint grenade?! ive used them on many a wary red coat with great success, great stopping power and no exit wound even with speeds just under 3000fps

  Trail boss makes some very nice, light and accurate loads for lower velocity, recoil and noise. It is a fun powder to work with. Makes good practice loads for the ladies, kids and light short range loads on small varmints. And you never have to worry about double charging. Just fill the case to bottom of the neck and seat the bullet and have fun. Check their site  for loads, etc.   Bill K

Ozzie boy, this is beanfielder in Texas. I've noticed that Mossberg has came out with a .223/5.56 varmint rifle. -From what little I've read, it seems to be o.k. I maay buy one for my son this coming christmas or his next birthday. He's a left-hander and he's left eye dominant. I can shoot my set-ups but I'm a right-hander, and all my stocks are Boyd's VT right handers. Those stocks are great! Besides I need a good excuse to buy another varmint getter but one with a stock that'll be good for the boy. Any thoughts?

Have a good'n

Go to Hodgdon web site and find the information on Trailboss. The site will tell you how to figure out loads for the powder. I have freinds that are using Trail boss in sub sonic loads for other cartridges. ghorne
