Greetings all, with the limited availability of reloading supplies,the only rifle powder I was able to find was Reloader 19 which I know is not ideal for the .223 (too slow). However, if this were the only option what would be a good starting load for a 55gn fmj and a rifle barrel with a 1:9 twist?

I don't think you're going to find any information out there.. As you stated this powder burns too slow.. But if you HAD to, I would personally take the data for the 220 swift, and back it off by a few grains, then chrony it and check your velocity, then go from there.
