Default proper powder for 223 reload

I am just starting to re load I bought a lee loader 223 kit just to start. my question is i was told ball powder H-335 was good to go. Dumb a*ss at ammo brothers knew less than i do about reloading. They said they did not have any H-335 . I was reading labels and bought Winchester ball powder 760 rifle. Is this powder ok . The lee loader just has a little cup you scoop powder and level it before installing in a case. The chart that comes with the lee loader does not mention Winchester 760 . If it is ok to use 760 in my bolt savage 223 i will use this up before i change brands.
I am getting proper loading equipment very soon.

You should go to the winchester powder website to see which powder you bought. I would not use that for 223. Also which scale do you have ? You dont fill that little scooper and just pour the powder into the case. Do you have a reloading book ?

760 is unsuited for 223, way too slow burning. 748 is good. I use Ramshot X-Terminator and TAC, both ball powders. I use ball powders in 223 & 308 because they meter like water, perfect throws every time. There's nothing performance wise that makes ball powders better in 223 or any other caliber.

Win 760 might be "too" slow for M1 Garand loads. Check out the powder burn rate chart.

For gas guns from 223 to 30-06, choose powders that are from H4895 to Varget or IMR 4320.

H4895 or Varget is very good for 223, 308 Win, 30-06, or 7.5 Swiss.

AR comp works better than IMR 4320. But its not ball powder.

So many powders out there and I don't have the time to test each one

IMR 8208XBR is a short stick powder so if you use a progressive or a hand crank powder dispenser this may be the winner!

I think that 4320s stick powder kernel is as long as 8208XBR. Have used 4320 for M1 loads with the 168 SMK, it's all good.

Have used 8208XBR for 223s from 52 SMK to Berger 82s. It's also good for M1 loads and the burn rate is similar to H4895.

Right now, I have half a jug of IMR 4064 to finish. Thankfully I have a Chargemaster

so the employee is a dumbass because he's not an avid reloader? then you go on to say you read labels and bought 760 and now ask if its ok? Why wouldn't you research it before buying it? are you now the dumbass?

I went in to buy a very popular 223 powder they should have had. I asked for help picking a 223 powder. A accept some blame but you would think a store named ammo bros should have a way to help a customer pick a proper substitute powder for Remington 223. The store was deserted so they had time to find a chart or something to help a new re-loader. I was 15 miles from home and did not know it was going to be this complicated.

I didn't even know ammo bros was considered a reloading shop, there website doesn't even advertise ammo as its main commodity. Just another gun shop so yeah its your 100% your fault and not just "some blame" for not researching this before going there or at least calling ahead. Even the biggest reloading stores sometimes are oos on the popular powders. Don't you carry a smart phone with you to look up things on the fly? Wait... lets just go back to step one. You should've done all this before heading to buy things you have no clue about. It's so funny you had the urge to call a clerk a dumbass when you went ahead and bought the wrong kind of powder because that you choose yourself, normally i would feel bad but you came off like an *** from the start of your post.

BLC2 is what I recall the military uses. Covers the spectrum well and is pretty economical.

There's a LOT of powders which work well. Some work better with heavier or lighter bullets.

And get a scale before you hurt yourself.

At the very least I would get a cheap beam scale to double check what you're doing. Those Lee Loader kits look great and seem like an easy way to go (especially after watching the Richard Lee BoobTube video on them), but easy and reloading don't always mix, YMMV. That video always strikes me more as entertainment than an actual how-to with a slightly condescending touch of "you're over complicating this, take it from an old fart like me" (sorry RL fans). I've also never not consulted a loading manual before sitting down to load.

As far as powders go, I've had good luck with H335 in my AR with both 45 grain SPs and 77 grain BTHPs (again, YMMV).

You might want to try Phillips Wholesale if you're in the West Covina area, decent prices and if he's not busy, he's willing to help. If not, he's got manuals you can reference. Going in to Ammo Bros and asking about reloading advice is almost like walking into Kmart and asking for automobile repair advice, IME.

Can not be said enough. Read the first 1/2 of the manual before you go to the recipes/load data. There is so much to know that you don't even know what to ask.

I like the Lyman's manual, others like other manuals and most of us have several manuals.

Reloading is a learning process for sure.I am just getting started. Thanks for the info even the criticism. I guess my expectations for ammo brothers was too hi. That supply shop in covina is closed on all my days off or i would have gone their first.

Except for load recipes for specific powders, everything you ever wanted to know about reloading is on YouTube. Manuals have load recipes. I have several and if I had to choose just one it would be lyman's.

DO NOT use Win 760 in your M1 Garand. Much too slow and will damage your Garand. Chalk it up as a lesson learned and you're out $20 or so. Win 760 is a good powder for bolt action 30-06 but a no-no for a Garand. Use powders on the burn rate chart for your Garand between IMR 4895 and IMR 4064. Gun store clerks are often totally clueless about reloading and will sell something just to make a sale.

If not, get it.

No on the 760. I have used Win748 for many, many years with 55 and 40gr bullets. H335 is also a good choice. Benchmark is one I also use for 40gr bullets. I also use 748 and benchmark for 36 &50gr Barnes VG bullets.
I do not load heavier bullets. If I want more bullet weight I use a 25cal rifle/pistol.
If you are near me I will be glad to help you out. Or you can PM me for my phone # and we can talk.

Dude let me check my stuff. I believe i have a lee first edition for you and a set of the dippers you can have since i know you are semi local or i can use it as an excuse to go to one of the c and r shoots again. I know i have the dippers but not sure about the manual.

Win 748 you have is good stuff for 223 and almost always available. Find a good manual, read and take your time.

Whoa ladies, put the claws back in...wow. So somebody asks for advice and we just tear them apart? No wonder people don't want to deal with Californians...

Anyhow, it's definitely not a bad idea to get some manuals and at least a cheap digital scale, but there's no reason you can't find a good dip-load for basic .223. Is this for a bolt gun or semi-auto? Also, I have a literal crap-ton of manuals and data if you need it, and also a scale. Remind me and i'll put it in my work truck and drop it off to you in my travels.

I took a Amercan eagle 223 apart and poured the powder in my Lee loader dip cup , it filled the cup.I measured the case length & total length loaded. Both were in speck. I made sure the primer was at least flush or slightly inside the case. I will shoot this in my savage 223 bolt rifle. I made up 50 rounds and it was fun. I am a plinker so perfection is not my goal, safety yes. After i get proper reloading equipment i will re load for my mini 14 .I think the lee loader starter kit is perfect to see if re loading is somebody's cup of tea or not. I have maybe 150 bucks total investment to find out if i want to do this. I have a life time supply of my other calibers, I am only going to re load 223, maybe 45 acp later.

OP, try to attend one of the reloading workshop in your area or get someone with some experience to walk you through the process. I was lucky enough to have a buddy to show me otherwise I wouldn't have no idea where to start.

Just remember the powder the factory loads use is powder you cannot get. There is NO comparison between the two that you can use in reloading.

This is true.
But I had a situation where Rem 6.8SPC would not cycle in my gun.
So I pulled 180 bullets and reworked the rounds with the factory powder. I used Accurate 2200 for the remainder of the cartridges and all was good.
The damned rouge rounds I made were some of the more accurate loads ever in 6.8. But so were the rounds with 2200. the bullets where a cavity back 115 grain factory Rem.
So in this case, getting the factory bullets would be more valuable than the factory powder.

Go to OC Reload and talk with Brian. His shop is off the 57 and Katella. You should have talked to me, I would have helped you out.
1. Get a good lyman manual or ask me to look in mine.
2. Get a scale. I just sold a good one for $45.00
3. Get advice from someone like Brian at OC Reload, not some counter guy.

I am going to PM you my phone number, hopefully I can help you out.
