There are a bunch of powders that will do well. I've loaded a bajillion using WW748. I have read good things about CFE 223 and have been trying to get some to try with my 204 Ruger...but like many powders, I have had no luck finding any locally.

Good luck and all the best.

After load testing I let my rifle tell me which it prefers. Presently loading R-15, BLC-2, Benchmark, and H322 depending on which gun and what bullet I am shooting. Some years ago I had a Rem. 223 Varmint that shot 4198 better than anything else I tried in it. It's a journey finding out what works for you and your gun. Have fun and good luck.

My favorite is BL-C(2). I've used Varget, IMR 3031, IMR 4064, and Power Pro Varmint also. The LGS was out of BL-C(2), the only powder they had left for .223 was CFE 223. I've heard good things.

Well, l have my order in for these in this order, Varget, 748 and BL-C(2). I added H335 to the list, So we shall see what powderman brings me!!! I like easy metering powders, and l use Varget and BLC(2) already so l may as well stock up when/while l can and then add some 748, H335 JIC l may need/want it later.

Still seating on a couple of jugs of WC 844 from way back when, paid $60.00 a 8# jug best I can recall.

I used to buy military pull down powder that loaded like H335 from Hi Tech reloading supplies for $80 a keg. Shot fine with their pulled .223 Bullets for 3 gun. Those days are gone though.
