    Rex 1 powder for cast in 30-06, anyone have good data?

    I was gifted a can of Rex 1, in searching, I have found load data for it in shotgun (what it was intended for). Also data for handgun.

    Only rifle reference is it's "similar" to Red Dot, I was hoping to find someone that had actually used it in 30-06. If got a bunch of 311284's and RCBS 180's on the bench along with 250 30-06 cases that have been sized, deprived/reprimed and belled waiting to be stuffed.

    All I need is valid data and I (hopefully) work at killing of one of the to many orphan cans of powder I've acquired.

    Or go back to one of the old standby's--2400, Blue Dot, 4759, 700x and try to NOT blow myself up.

    Anybody ever use it in rifle calibers with cast boolits?
