    Are these two powders basically the same? I scored a pound of AA2494 for 10 bucks, but reloading data for 223 is scarce. Accurate show between 23.6gr and 26.2 gr for 2495 for a Nosler 55 SPBT. I am using Winchester bulk 55gr FMJBT.

    Thoughts?

    Cool Thanks!

    I was planning around 24 gr. But I'll drop it back to 23 gr and go from there.

    Thanks again.
