...Dupont 5066 Powder...

Does anyone have any reloading information on Dupont 5066 powder or know where I can find such information. Hodgdon doesn't have anything on it. Thanks for any help. Dave Inman Email above secretly altered.

Sir----1962 Speer Loading Manual,"Du Pont 5066 does its best work in .45ACP.It is widely used by target shooters in most pistol calibers."

These loads are from a Lyman manual(1955)

.32ACP,77gr cast bullet,2.5 gr 5066

.357 148gr cast bullet,4.0gr 5066

.41 Long Colt,196gr cast bullet,4.1 gr 5066

.45ACP,200gr cast bullet,6.6gr 5066

Hope the information is useful

A friend of mine recently bought a box full of it. Stored properly, no one knows how long smokeless powder will last. It smells like it was made yesterday.

What caliber are we talking about?

I just recently became the owner of 6ea. 4 lb cans in the factory shipping boxes with Jan. 22 1967 Kansas City Star newspaper packing around them. I reload most of the more common handguns and rifles as well as shotguns and was trying to find loading information on 5066 dupont powder. I reload for 9mm 38 357 40s&w 44 45. Thanks, Dave Inman
