    I grew up with a Remington 722 in 222 Remington. Been loading and shooting that gun for fifty years. I do not have a reason to trade for any other caliber in its class, but I already have it. But If I didn't have it, it would be a hard choice to...

    I use lee dippers alot. Mostly on flake powders like 700x, the dots-green,red and blue and unique. My system is pour the powder into a wide mouth plastic container and run the scoop through 4 times, then strike off level with the flat,middle section...

    ABJ replied to a thread 4759 in Canister & Surplus Powder
    I still have 8/10 lbs left but I think 2400 or 5744 are fine replacements ie.... not the same charge. I use a dacron filler with 4759 and the other two listed but the 2400 on the smaller cases like 30-30 there is very little to gain with a filler,...

    CW, yes 2400 is my favorite. 16.0 plus or minus on a gas checked 150 with or without a dacron filler. For a non hunting load 10.0 plus or minus is a good plinking load. no filler on the 10.0 grain load. Tony

    I still have some 4759 so I've been testing other powders for when the 4759 is gone. 2400 and 5744 seem to be good replacements. I haven't found a replacement for 4756 or 7625 in handgun. Both of those are unbelievably accurate powders in 32 long,...
