H-322 in the .222/.222 Magnum---

Has anybody tried any of the Hodgdon 322 powder in the .222 Remington
or the .222 Magnum with 40,45, or 50gr bullets ?
Aren't they making it in smaller containers of less than 1 pound now ?
Do you think it's better in those cartridges than Benchmark,Blc-2, 4198
and H 335 ?

H322 is a fine powder for the 222/223 class of cartridges. I have an 8# jug, and it shoots like gangbusters in my Deuce. I'm using 22.5 gr. with a 50 grainer, and 21.0 with a 55 grain. It leaves more carbon fouling than some other powders like RL7, but the shot to shot consistency and SD is excellent. I like BLC2, but the BLC2 gets saved for the 52 grain Speer loads.
If you want your children to follow in your footsteps, be careful where you walk.
Beware the man that only owns one gun; he probably knows how to use it.
I just hope my ship comes in before my dock rots.
