Anyone have a good load for a 14" TC contender? .223 caliber. Also a decent variable scope. Thanks.

Yours is an old post but I'll give it a shot.
You didn't say whether target or hunting, but for accuracy on a target, I've found that H322 at 22.1gr along with the 50gr V-Max shoots consistently better than me.
Hodgdon shows a range of that combo of 22gr to 24gr so you're not pushing any pressure there at all.
Interesting thing; it got LESS accurate for me as I worked toward 24gr so I quit at 23.5 and settled on the 22.1gr load.

Can't help you with scopes because I prefer fixed on all my Contenders. 4x is my favorite but I've used from 2.5X to 6X. Any more than that and the cross hairs just bounce around and becomes a distraction (for me, anyway).
