    Have any of you ever heard of 866 powder? The tag on the can says use Red Dot loading data.

    Thanks,

    I never heard of it either, where did you get it--how old is it--or is it new on the market--what brand--many questions ????? Ross Puls

    Old, the cans have no name on them, or it has worn off during time, and they are factory sealed from who ever made them.

    I'm old, and I thought I had tried about all the powder produced from 1966 on but it's a new one on me. I can't find any information on it in any of the old loading manuals I have.

    It's fine grain.

    I miss read what is left of the label. The powder is H66 and it is a Silver color and fine grain.

    When he first started, Hodgdon was selling relabled surplus military powder. I would maybe email them to see if H66 was part of that. They have a site, www.hodgdon.com
