KNOCKED UP

Why?

Recommended Posts

I have always used H335 for .223 loads.

Recently I purchased the new Hornady reloading book, I find that they have five loads for 55 grain Hornady bullets, using H335

  Except for 55 grain GMX.

What is so special about the GMX 55 grain that they don't list H335 for the 55 gr. GMX?

Hey Tom, according to Hornady you can load those the same as you would any non GMX bullets of the same weight.  So if you have a particular load with H335 you like with another 55 grain bullet use that.

What are you hunting with a 223 that you need GMX bullets for? They are an extremely hard gilded metal, not copper. If hunting predators, I don't think you'll get the performance you want. I think Lehigh Bullets in 45 or 55gr would be your best bet. I know Shoot-it has dropped a few in their tracks with them. And they are much easier to find a load for (for me) than the GMX. And I'm a Hornady fan!

Bob, I can always use them for dust collectors.

Or what I call "mag fillers" with lead on top........

I just didn't want you to get frustrated without warning. They are extremely tough, and would most likely punch right through with little expansion think skin like coyotes. That bullet would actually be better off on pig or deer.
