I need to purchase a large quantity of 308 Win powder. The more I buy, the cheaper it gets, due to shipping and large quantity discounts. I am looking at Lovex D073.06 powder, which is the original AA2520. This is the original 2520 powder, before it was moved to mfg in Belguim for AA and Ramshot powders. Explosia is the mfg, and sold under Lovex powder. With the prices I'm looking at, it should be much less than other local dealers, and a whole lot less than retail pricing. I can also get other Lovex powders listed in the link below. This purchase is focused on a bulk buy. If you are wanting to try 1# of something, this deal is not for you. The main powder I will plan to purchase is D073.06 (AA2520), which is an awesome powder for the 223 and 308, and is geared more towards the heavier bullet applications for each. If you are interested in 8 pounds or more, take a look at the link below on the product data, reloading data and burn rates.

What kind of price/lb would we potentially be looking at? I might be interested but no unless its cheaper than what I can buy Ramshot TAC.

How well does this meter?

How temp stable?

Jepper, I am waiting on pricing right now. I will let you know on this thread as soon as I get it back.

Cleric, the 2520 powder is a double base, spherical powder. It is the BEST metering powder I have found, and is also one of the most consistent powders for bulk match grade ammo I have found for my 308 loads. It will have some temp sensitivity compared to other extreme powders. But what I am looking for is something that will meter consistently and shoot well to load on a progressive machine. Any of the extruded powders will not work for this, which are the temp stable powders. So, there is a trade off there. I have done lots of load testing and this is the best powder I have found.

Sounds good...

Am interested. Want to set up a 223 machine and run some ammo

What I found interesting was the load data only goes to 69smk. No load data for 77 or 75amax

The D073.06 (2520) powder would be best for that, or the next one faster burning D073.05 (AA2460). The slower burning 2520 powder would work great for the 223 and heavy bullets.

I have used this powder in 308,223,20 TAC and 6x45mm with good results.
I used the last bit I had loading ammo in the 20 TAC for a coyote PD combo hunt to Montana
It would depend on price but I would more than likely take 8lb

Too much gun powder is like too much horsepower or too much money, there's no such thing.

I'm down for 8 pounds.
