I just bought a brand new in-the-box stainless .223 synthetic for $190.00
out the door at a local gun show. I think this is an excellent price. It is not a bull barrell but is a sharp looking gun. This makes my third Handi. I have a .280 that I killed two bucks with this past season (2 shots - 2 kills) and a .308 Survivor that I bought after the season was over. Would have been my fourth Handi, but I traded a .243/muzzleloader combo at the same gun show. Loved the .243 but didn't enjoy muzzleloading, too messy for my lazy bones.
My question is this, what are some good, accurate factory loads for the .223? I don't handload, so it will have to be factory ammo. Thanks in advance for your responses!

Just got a great deal on a stainless .223 H

Generally, the Winchester 45 gr hollow point (White box of 40 rounds) has became the standard by which all other factory loads are compared, on this forum. Consensus is that it usually shoots as well and most of the time better in our Handi's. I've had good luck with S&B, Federal and Remington loads. Good luck.

The winchester white box 45 gr. HP are great in the handis. I would also try the UMC 55 gr. FMJ. They are sold at walmart for about $4/box. These 2 seem to shoot the best in my handi.
