    Don't have any info for this powder except the three on the lable, and I was wondering, do you use the same info for 2230, or is it 10% faster or 10% slower. If it's faster, then how do I know which powder info to use, (go afew up the chart?? or use a reduced load and expect max a grain or so early?)

    Bought the powder at a yardsale, couldn't say no when she took my offer for the whole box.

    Accurate has a Data Powder DP2230-C, is that the powder you're asking about?
    If it is, this is directly from the Accurate Site:

    sorry, yes, but no,
    it's surplus, according to all the stuff I've found, don't know if once used (pulled powder) or not.

    2230-C is the stuff currently being sold, this was being sold like 3 -5 years ago, believe it was used for 249 linked ammo, 5.56 machinegun ammo, What I read was that the S is faster burning, where the C is slower burning.

    I picked up an 8 Lb jug of 2230-S a few years ago cheap. Figured it would come in handy one day. Unfortunately I have no more data than you, and have not tested any of it yet.

    Not a good way. A few up or down a chart could be a big difference.

    I would start with AA 2230 minimum data. Load 2 or 3, shoot, and go from there. This is where a chrono is real helpful.

    I found this.
    The powder was surplus, Data Powder 2230-S, from Accurate Arms Co. While the container label had a recipe on it for .223 using 55 grain bullets, it listed only a single charge weight. An internet search yielded the e-mail address for Accurate Arms (now owned by Western Powders). I got a quick response to my e-mailed question. This powder is a ball powder that is, according to the Accurate rep, 4% faster burning than their regular AA-2230 powder.

    Excellent link steve4102, and great info on the 4% faster than regular 2230. Every little bit helps.

    If its 4% faster, what does that mean as far as loading?
