Default Rounds per pound of powder?

Hi,

Typically, roughly how rounds of 9mm, 40 s&w, 45acp, 223 Rem and 308 Win would you expect to load in a pound powder?

TIA,

ASR

7000/# of grains per load = loads per 1lb.

Two! but, I roll big rounds!

It depends on your choice of powders and your load. I can load about 6350 rounds of .25acp per lb, 28-32 rounds of 50BMG per pound, 300 rounds of .223 per lb, 1500ish rounds of 9mm or 45acp per lb. These are guestimates based on an average load with an average powder. YMMV.

.223/5.56 about 25 grains each rd gives you 280 rds per pound.

1 pound of W 231 for 45 ACP reloads = 1400 rounds. That's 5 grains per load. 1 pound = 7,000 grains. Therefore, 7,000 grains/5 grains=1,400.

You should have used 26-27gr for 55gr bullets. Your rounds will be a little soft. But that's how you learn. Good luck I'm sorry, maybe Benchmark is hotter powder than the H335 I use.
