    Hi I've assembled an accurized 700 SS short.
    It has a 24" SS tube.
    Lapua brass, 210 GMM primers and 168 Combined Technology bullets.
    I noticed that CFE 223 gave great velocity with 168 grain bullets.

    Anyone assemble loads with CFE 223 in their 308?

    Thanks

    The 2013 Hodgden Magazine/Manual has multiple calibers and loads for CFE 223.

    A full load in my .308 5R using 175 SMK @2.828 OAL shot real nice.

    I tried 46.5 grs CFE 223 pushing 175 SMK out of a 26" barrel. I got 1/2 MOA at 200 yds.
