I have Hornady 168gr BTHP And I picked up some CFE223 to try because I heard good things about it, but Hornady and Hodgdon reload data are not even close In grain ammounts. It’s probably a long shot but has anyone loaded something along these lines? Btw, I have an LR-308 16” with a 1/10 twist.
Jim how about you? @USRS
I would start with Hodgdon data since they make the powder. I use it a lot in 5.56/223…
Here is their website. This is from their page.
I saw that but their min load is almost Hornadys Max load.
I ended up using 46.0 +/-.3 so I guess we’ll find out how that goes. Pressure should be fine, I just hope it cycles, if not, I guess I got a semi automatic bolt action for the time being lol

So, how’d it go?
@LonewolfMcQuade not bad. Grouping was pretty tight at 200 yds. That’s as far as the range goes where I went. 210 to be exact. No cycling issues
