    Checking back in on CFE223

    Last time I posted about this powder, no one was really familiar with it. I'm just about at max load per Hodgdons data and am still experiencing weak case ejection. My AR still ejects factory .223 well. I'm beginning to think its not the powder. Just checking in again to see if anyone has given this powder a go.

    It may not be the powder causing you weak ejection. It may be the recoil buffer spring is weak. I had to replace mine when my Stag AR wouldn't cycle on my reload very well and it worked. New heavier Wolf Buffer Spring from Midway.

    Oddly enough my AR is a Stag 2T. The buffer spring is cheap enough to give it a shot. Although not sure why my .223 factory loads eject properly. Like I said, a cheap enough part like the buffer spring is worth a shot. Thanks donp326
