Have been running some 224 Valkyrie ladders/Hornady 75grain ELD loads with CFE223 and Varget. For CFE223, on the plus side, two different ladders have both consistently indicated possible loads at 25.8-26.0 and 26.6-26.8. I'm going to try a 26.7 load this time (velocity at 2900fps) since a previous trial load at 26.0 was disappointing. On the down side, the two different ladders were done at 50F and 65F and the velocity results were far apart (26.0 was [email protected] and [email protected]) so CFE223 doesn't seem to be very temperature stable (same brass and OAL used) and I don't know about using it long term even if it groups well. Have others had better temperature stability with CFE223? I hoped that Varget would give me a better load, and ran a ladder yesterday but the ladder curve is almost straight sloped, with no obvious nodes. Would you try the 24.6-24.8 area? 24.6 grains was 2838fps and 24.8 was 2847fps. I should add that the 25.0-25.4grain Varget loads may be showing ejector marks but the 24.8 grain loads appeared fine.
