I went ahead and went to Hodgdon website.
I see you don't have h322 ,that sucks,it is temp stable.
With h322 there is ALOT of room in the case.
I'm not gonna try to convert,or convince you to try Blc2.
But I do use it for 308,223, myself and even though it's not temp stable ,with my rifles, when you find a load that shoots well ,it will work.
Here's a screen shot of Hodgdon reloading of those two powder for a 77gr bullet.
Wish ya luck with it
I've said all I can tell ya.


I appreciate that man I really do. Thank you

I'm pretty sure the reloading data I posted is for 223.
So you could still work your way up a little.(556 will take a tiny bit more presure)
Blc2 is probably out anyway cause of your reloading data shows your out of case capacity pretty quick with those long bullets.
If you ever come across h322 ,I would definitely give it a try.
I've never reloaded 223/556.
But reload a lot with a 223 case and a 25 cal bullet shoved in that case.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

H322 looks like it could be a winner, for a lot of stuff Iíll keep my eyes peeled. Like I needed another powder on my list of powders Iím looking for. I just got back into owning some Magnums and hunting that powder too
