    What loads are you using H380 for?

    Small caliber centerfire varmint type rifle. Earned its fame in 22-250. Not bad for 243 Winchester.
    Passable in 223 Rem, but R15 and Varget are better.

    Best powders I've determined to date:

    Alliant Reloder 10x for .223 Remington and Hodgdon H4350 for .243 Winchester. Since these are the only two calibers that I rangefire, I feel I pegged these calibers velocity and accuracywise. Since I recently bought some 105 grain Lapua Scenar bullets, the jury remains out on these bullets until spring warms anew. Since STICKY notations seem aimed at my prescribed loads, I will forgo posting specific loads that work well for me. cliffy

    I use H-380 for my .30-30 and am in the process of developing a load for my newly acquired Marlin XL7 in .30-06.

    38 grains behind a 52-gr bullet for 22-250 was the claim to fame for this powder. Bruce Hodgdon developed it and the .22-250 as well.

    Shoots real well in my .308 behind a 168gr SMK. All holes touching at 100yds.
