H-108 Hodgdon powder

Help, can someone out there post me in the right direction for the use of H-108 powder?, I`ve got two 8lbs jugs of these, and I know they were surplus, only paid $47.00 per jug for them, but can`t find any listings anywhere, as to how much to use and for what caliber? I want to load them in M-14, and 30-06.
Maybe there`s a site on this forum somewhere, but I ain`t found it yet. I did call Hodgdon, and they are sending me a pamphlet, but its coming by snail, mail, which takes forever.

thanks

A google search came up with nothing for me. Must be REALLY obsolete.

The Propellent You Noted Is Not Usable In The Rifle Calibers You Mentioned.

THIS IS A PISTOL PROPELLENT.
It is slightly faster burning than H110 and is somewhat like AA9.

A lot of .410 shooters use it. I think you are SOL as far as 308 or 30-06 loads!

Thanks everyone.

I got a letter today in the mail from Hodgdon Powder, and it listed 30 M. Carbine----7.62/39 Russian-----32-40--.357 Magnum-----.44 Rem.Mag---454 Casull Cartridge---and the 410. Thats all. Oh well I do have some .357 to load. The powder going to last for a long--long--time.
