I know there are a lot of good powders out there and many rounds and loads excel with different powders. I just like to keep things simple and consistent. I also only reload rifle rounds in 223 and 308 (well, 300BO until I get my kit sold).

I have been using CFE pistol for a bit over a year in 9mm, 357/38, and 45acp. I just recently got my first pound of CFE 223. I really like the way it throws in my progressive press. It is very consistent. I've only loaded 223, but am going to cook up some 308 later this fall.

I am really considering taking all of my other 1lb bottles and sealing them up in FoodSaver bags for hard times, and just keeping 8lb bottles of CFE Pistol and CFE 223 at the bench.

CFE is a good powder in the 308 and 223 and being a ball powder it meters well. I use CFE223 mostly in the 6.5 Grendel but that is what I shoot most these days.

I use the 223 for my 308 and love it.
