Hi-Skor 700-X Data for .308/7.62x51?


Do any of you have any experience loading .308/7.62x51 using Hi-Skor 700-X powder? I haven't found any reloading data for it and I've got a can of 700-X I'd like to use up in the Garand. I don't use the 700-X in anything else I load, so it's just sitting on the shelf. If any of you can point me to some load data I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks!

Set down the keg and back away slowly...

I wouldn't get within 10 feet of that stuff loaded into a .308 cartridge. The burn rate for 700-X is WAY too fast for a rifle cartridge. It's comparable to Alliant Green Dot - not suitable for rifles!

I knew you could use it in .223, but I also figured that since there wasn't any load data I could find it might not be a good idea. I knew you'd know the answer. Thanks!

I wouldn't use Green Dot in a .223 ... still too fast.

Blue dot would make a good powder for a .223 Thompson Center pistol, however.
