221 Fire Ball CFE BLK 40gr Berger

Purchased a new CZ 527 in the .221 a week ago.. The gun shop I got it at had three of them and two weeks later they were all gone.

I'm going to try the new Powder CFE BLK with a 40gr Berger Varmint.

and GM205M Primers................with Lapua cases.


I realize that his Powder just hit the market and see that 3600 with the 40gr bullet is what it will give.............

Has anyone tried this new Powder?? Or the 40gr Berger in there .221?

Re: 221 Fire Ball CFE BLK 40gr Berger

I haven't tried either, but the cfe looks to be top of the velocity heap for the 40's. I recently bought a 700 in 221. The only thing I've loaded so far is bulk hornady 55 gr sp's with h4198. 18.2 gr is the sweet spot in my gun with norma brass. Not sure if you've seen this, but...
