    CFE Black?

    Does anyone use this in the .300 Blackout? I've used W296, H110, and LilGun with success but I'm wondering about the CFE offering.

    Way better in my opinion in an AR type. The gun will cycle as it is supposed to. Never have been able to make h110/296 work.

    Read some where it can be used for subsonic loads and was designed for the 300 blackout. But have not found any data. I got it for use in my 17HH but have not had a chance to try it.

    I looked it up which it's what I should have done in the first place. Yes it is meant for subsonic loads; I don't use them.
    Thanks, guys.

    I use CFE Black for 3 or 4 different black out loads and I like the powder, it fills the case nicely and have had good results with the chronograph and accuracy. I don't use if for sub loads though just supers.

    It is very close to AA1680 but with a copper fouling eraser, I plan to use it in my BO as well as my .218 Mashburn Bee, it is recommended for the hornet and the K-hornet and it was a hard powder to find in the stores.

    I use it, gets a little dirty if not full load. So far only tested in pistol with 185gr & 165gr. Close range I got a couple doubles, red dot..
    Whatever!
