Powder ID help?

Hi All,

I received some handloaded ammo from a trusted source, but dot not know the powder used. They are 69gr Nosler's loaded in R-P 223 cases over 23 grn of powder. It's something between a flake and a ball powder.

Does anyone recognize it from the pic?

They shoot really well and I'd like to figure out what the recipe is if possible. . .



Thanks all and God bless you!

Adam

Re: Powder ID help?

It could be a number of powders because they all look like that. There is no way of knowing just by looking. It could even be some of the military surplus powder that is going around. Ask the "trusted" person that you got them from who loaded them and find out from the loader is your only option for being sure.
