I have tried CFE223 in 17 Remington--ok but did not ring by bell. Needs more testing.

I have also tried it in 204 Ruger. Pleased enough that I bought another canister of the powder.

I have not tried it in 223 Remington yet but will some day. It is mostly because I have been working with cartridges that CFE223 is not appropriate.

Welcome to the forum.

I've tried it in .22-250 and with 75gr Hornady H.P.'s in .243 Win. It's okay but not good enough to make it my goto powder in either. Maybe with more testing I'll find a great load or three.
