    I got 16 pounds of the stuff for a customer back before Xmas .

    He plans to use it in the 223 , 308 and his version of the 270-308 Wildcat .

    I do not however think he's tried it in any of them yet .

    Heard a rumour that Morgans Gun Room (Oswestry, Shropshire) had some -or another company - I think it's called Wynstay and very close to Morgans had some a few weeks ago

    I have tried cfe223 in a tikka 204 with nosler 32gr. It didn't group better than 1 moa but it was consistent across my trial of .2gr increments and nothing was better or worse, I simply didn't follow up with a second trial.

    That's not to say it wouldn't do better as I'm sure it would but i already had a great combo with rl10x and 39gr sbk so have stopped with that for now.

    What are you looking at loading with a 204?

    i have a nearly full pot sat here if you want some...
