800X is quickly becoming my "go-to" powder...I have excellent loads for 45acp, 44 mag, 327 fed, and rifles too, 35 rem & 7.62x54r with cast 1100 fps loads all seem to work well. One thing I haven't tried yet (sorry Larry Gibson) is dacron filler in my rifle loads, but that's coming. Plus, I'm discovering this is THE powder for my 20 gauge loads, especially with 1 oz. #2 buckshot...nice tight patterns.
My question is this, anybody use this powder? If so, for what?
I'm beginning to think I could get by on just 1 powder as long as I don't need high velocity rifle loads, but I'm getting almost 1000 fps out of my 45 acp with 230 gr cast with this stuff.
How high could you go with rifle loads and this powder? 1600 fps? If anyone has loads for rifles using dacron and this powder, I would try 7.62x54r first, that would be great! Would you start at 7 grains of powder and dacron?
