I have searched many sights, and I'm not getting a lot of reports on using Ramshot TAC with the heavier 68-69 grain bullets in .223.

I still haven't tightened by handload groups enough yet to meet what I can do with factory premium. I've got good components. Hornday Match bullets, benchrest primers, LC brass by RVO, Redding dies, so the powder is the question.

I have heard somewhere that Black Hills uses TAC for their premium 223 loads.

What are your experiences with Ramshot TAC?

I like the Ramshot powders. I use Hunter in my 30-06 and 300WSM, BigGame in my 7mm/08 and 9.3x62, X-Terminator in my 7.62x39. In all cases the Ramshot powders have given me top velocities and super accuracy. I have a pound of TAC I will be testing in my 7mm/08 this week.
Ramshot has load data for the 223 (1 in 7 to 9 twist) using TAC from 68 to 80 grain bullets.
Steve's pages also has some info you might find usefull.

I use X-Terminator in my Ruger Mini-30. Velocities for the 125gr Sierra are compariable to H335 and H4198 but the accuracy is better with the XT. X-Terminator really shines when I am using 150gr Sierra's. Accuracy is about 1.5 inches at 100 yards and an avg. velocity of 2107fps. Can't beat that for a hunting load in the Mini-30. Still nothing will beat the accuracy of a 125gr Sierra and 29.5gr of AA2230 in my Mini-30, it is just kinda slow.
