Smokeless Powder

Product Overview

This spherical propellant yields top velocities in many cartridges such as the 204 Ruger, 223 Remington/5.56mm NATO, 22-250 Remington and the 308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO, plus many, many more.

CFE 223 contains our Copper Fouling Eraser ingredient, originally used in military propellant, which greatly deters copper fouling and contributes to longer periods of top accuracy with less barrel cleaning time.

Being a spherical powder, metering is superbly accurate.

Made in the USA. 

Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers.

    CFE 223 Groupings

    Posted by Minnesota Monty on Feb 11th 2022

    Historically Benchmark (40-50 gr) and Varget (55 gr) have been my favorite powders for the 223. CFE 223 have filled a nice niche and spits out nice groups— however they shoot about an inch lower than the other loads. Not interchangeable

    My new Savage Axis ll in 270 Win shot so well I had to try my hand in the varmint fields. I had some CFE 223 and picked up some Sierra 90gr. hollow points. After sight in a 300 yards shooting very sub moa I was banging those woodchucks with my best shot at around (using a golf rangefinder) 450 yards. Those little suckers paid a high price that day and clean up was just a few passes with a bore snake. Very happy.

    great powder for 223 reloads. It was quite costly after the hazmat and shipping but it was my birthday so I deserved to get some.

    Would have been five stars; however, there are certain temperature variations. I like: Burn rate enabling full cases Low pressures Capability concerning projectile velocity Burns Clean

    I have used CFE 223 since I first read about it. So, for around 10 years or so. It has performed well. Been accurate and burns clean. Now if I can just get some H 4350, I would be happier lol. Thank you Hodgdon for your powders
