? on load, are these too hot of a load

Working on 223 load and wanting to see what my rifles like the best.

2 barrels
18" criterion 1/7 twist
20" JP 1/8 twist

Bullet: 77 gr Sierra MatchKing HPBT
Primer: CCI 400
Brass: LC
Brass Trim: 1.750
OAL: 2.256 - 2.258
Ogive: 1.875

Powder: Hodgdon Varget

Loads I am looking at are the following:

22.5, 23, 23.5, 24, 24.3, 24.5 & 25

THe Lyman reloading book is the only manual that states you can go up to 25 gr of Varget.

Is going above 24 gr of varget too hot of a load with the above information?

Thanks for the help,

Chad
