Is any one using CFE223 in 308?

I just got a pound of it and thought I would try it since I have been thinking about a ball powder for my 308.

where are you finding the sweet spot? Judging from my rifle yesterday, I assume it is towards the max charge.

I went up to 44 grains, and the best I could get was about 3" at 100 yards. It did steadily tighten up as I increased the charge.
