    I am trying to find load data on a Speer bullet, 22 Cal 55 Grn, .224 Spitzer No. 1047.

    I am trying to load with H335 in a .223 Remington cartridge.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The standard "Go-To" load (or at least mine) is 25.0grains of H335 with the 55g bullet. Shoots well in almost all rifles, and where I start with any .223. Rarely is anything else necessary to try. Less than a maximum load in all books. (You picked the right powder right off the bat!)
