I have just finished a 2# jug of N-133 for reloads - about close to 500 .... love it and wish I had more. It is small rod in type and meters very well.
I have 2# of Varget - a powder I have heard quite a bit about for the cal and so switched to that - time to try it out. But heck - hate the metering!!! It is also rod but larger than N-133 - and tho I set up for a drop of 26.5 - I am not happy that this is consistent - even tho I reckon my Hornady measure is usually good to +/- a tenth grain.
So - anyone loading .223 .. any thoughts re other powders? Varget is almost next to N-140 in burning rate and I use N-140 for .243 and do not want to use that instead for .223. I doubt I'll be buying so much Vhit powder anymore cos of cost.
Hodgdon H-335 is close to N-133 for burn rate - any users?
