TECHNICAL INFORMATION: The 6.5 Creedmoor is a superbly accurate cartridge. Originally designed for competitive shooting, it is an excellent hunting cartridge as well. CFE223 in cannisters is new and is being promoted by Hodgdon this year, so they will probably have the best current data for that powder. Call them up with your questions. They are nice folks. 6.5x47 / 6.5mmx47 Lapua (Berger Bullets Data) reloading data with 84 loads. Using bullets from Berger Match BT Target, Berger Match VLD Target or Match Grade VLD Hunting, Berger. This is my last work up with the CFE .223. I'm moving on to another project within the next month. My opinion of this powder is really good. 6.5 Grendel here...

Apr 16, 2020 · .224 Valkyrie. The .224 Valkyrie wasn’t asked to fill a void, yet it did with its creation. Before its inception, longer range shooting was dominated by larger caliber bolt rifles or large framed ARs in .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor.
Nov 30, 2016 · CFE223 is a spherical rifle propellant that incorporates in its formulation what Hodgdon calls “Copper Fouling Eraser” (CFE). In its marketing materials Hodgdon states, “This ingredient greatly deters copper fouling. It contributes to longer periods of top accuracy with less barrel cleaning time.” With your 1:9, you probably won't need to go below maybe 50 grain bullets and the 55-63 may be even better. The experimenting is a large part of the fun for me anyway. I am trying to find some CFE223 to use next. I use what RCBS used to call partial resizing in standard dies and get good results with case life around 10 loadings. It may not be unique but it is what I am able to acquire. If it was available as a cologne I would wear it. I switched to it from Varget as well. Although my Varget loads were flipping awesome. I need to stretch out my 4064 loads.
