My experience with auto loaders is that the burning rate of the powder is critical. You can either over drive the action or there isn't enough force left to cause the rifle to cycle. While failure to extract doesnt dammage the rifle it can be a damn pain.

One of the most versitle powders is 4895 I have seen in used in load books from .223 through 8MM for both bolts and autos.
