New Hodgdon CFE Black Powder

A new Spherical powder specifically formulated for the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge. Should be available Jan 2017

This new powder provides full function of AR-type rifles throughout the range of bullet weights, and is perfect for those subsonic reduced loads. In addition to being the perfect solution for the .300 Blackout, it performs beautifully in many smaller capacity cartridges, in particular, varmint cartridges such as the .17 Hornet, .17 Ackley Hornet, .218 Bee, .221 Fireball and many more. It also yields top performance in the 6.8 Remington SPC and the 7.62X39 MM Russian cartridge. This fine powder meters like a dream and leaves no copper residue, extending accuracy for longer shooting periods, and making clean-up quick and easy.

looks promising. hope to test it out when it hits the market.

wonder where it ends up on the burn rate chart compared to other powders. if its geared towards subs specifally its gotta be somewhere around 4227 -1680 and produces enough gas.


what i'm truly curious is to see the MSDS to see who's making it for them :D

burn rate

ranks 69 (on the chart linked above), basically right in line with what you suspected, plant_one.

13 loads (ATM) on their rifle loading page for the 300 AAC, in various bullet weights

it's starting to trickle down to the vendors finally

That probably means that it would be good for my 7.62x40WT also.

theres likely no reason thta wouldnt run great in a WT.

theres a few guys over on the BO forum who have started testing it, but its still realitvely new (and somewhat hard to find, although not quite Unobtanium), so real world data is still fairly scarce.


i dont plan to switch over anytime soon, as i've got a fairly good stash of D0-63 and few pounds of 1680 as well.

The local reloading shop had some so I picked up a pound to play with. With all the cards on my table, waiting for spring, can't say when I'll get around to testing it though.
