    I inherited a big keg of it which I started using recently. My old Lyman manual from the '70s has data for just about everything using 700X. When I ran out of Green Dot, I started using 10 grains of it in my plinking and practice load in the 7x57 and it seems to work just fine.

    You can do the equivalent of Ed Harris' "the load" (13 grains of Red Dot in a suitable rifle cartridge) with a grain or two less of 700x and a cast boolit. I have.

    As always, reduce a bit and work up carefully.

    I give loading advice based on my actual results in factory rifles with standard chambers, twist rates and basic accurizing.
    My goals for using cast boolits are lots of good, cheap, and reasonably accurate shooting, while avoiding overly tedious loading processes.
    The BHN Deformation Formula, and why I don't use it.
    How to find and fix sizing die eccentricity problems.
    Do you trust your casting thermometer?
    A few musings.

    used 700x when I couldn't find Titegroup or HP-38. worked very nicely in 380 ACP, 38 spl., target loads in 45ACP. does bridge some but had very good results.

    Has been a great performer for me in 38 special with hbwc, and 45acp jhp target loads.

    700x worked OK for me in 45 ACP, burns cleaner than Bullseye. The measuring problem with 700x gives larger velocity spreads than acceptable for serious target work but OK for plinking.
    WST and VV 310 both measure nicely. VV310 is faster than Bullseye, compensates for its high cost.

    Since 700X is now a Hodgdon powder, go to the Hodgdon.com website and navigate to the reloading data page. Choose your caliber and check the 700X powder box (along with boolit weight). Start with their recommendation(s).
