I would start at 23.0g and go up one shot for every .5g loaded...

using a thick primer cup like a 7 1/2 or cci450(br-4).

For instance, load one shot and one shot only looking for pressure signs......
23.0
23.5
24.0
24.5
25.0
25.5
26.
26.5
27.
etc until you determine what is a max load for your gun, accuracy will be within 2.0g of max.

You should get some screaming velocities out of 4198 with the 40's.

I spend Sunday working on my 223AI. I discovered that mine likes H335 with 50 grain bullets. However, it does NOT like H335 with 40 grain bullets. H322 seemed to work much better with the 40 grain Vmax.

Try Brassman for some IMI 223. He fixed me up last Dec (that sounds like a long time ago!)
