    bernk-80, not only does 700X have yellow flakes, but 17 grains is a most flexible use of the stuff. In 7/8 oz loads you'll see velocity of 1220 fps or better, in 1 oz loads you'll have in the vicinity of 1180 fps, and in 1 1/8 oz I'll guess without looking it up a velocity of in the neighborhood of 1145 fps. Much depending on which hull, primer, and wad as well. It's probably 700X.....Bob Dodd
