    I use H335 for 223 21.5g will stack them in a 3/4" group. But iv been using 700x for 9mm and dont think I can get power factor out of it safely.

    I contacted customer service at Hodgdon and they told me that CFE Pistol would not be available until sometime between May and August of 2014

    I did not realize it was not released yet, it looks like good stuff I will be in line when they release it for sure. Thanks Bonz

    It sure would be nice to find a big Hodgdon reseller that would allow us to "backorder", hate being at the back of the line

    Pistols should shoot BOOLITS - no need for that stuff.

    If it was easy, anybody could do it.

    Yeah, Boolits need a kick in the a$$. Wish I could find some Varget. My favorite 308 and 30-30 powder.

    Just picked up 4 x 1 pounders of Hodgdon CFE Pistol smokeless powder at Hyatt Guns in Charlotte NC ( $26.99 a pound ). Unfortunately they don't ship, you have to pick up in their store.

    i tried my rounds last week the 46 grains in 308 behind a 155 palma was not an impressive group and was doing 1" 1/2 at 200 yards , now considering i got blackspot surplus down to .28" at 100 yards

    i also loaded up 26 grains in 223 behind a 55 fmj and i got alot of delay fires , and didnt even bother with accuracy

    these were not exactly top end loads and there was abit of room in the case so maybe this powder would benifit from a filler or being compressed ....as long as you under the max

    the CFE Pistol meters great thru my Hornady measure. loaded up some 124gr 9mm, shot fine, mild report and low recoil. kinda boring, lol. normally use PowerPistol in my 9mm's. gonna load up some 45acp and see how that does.
