Default N 133

What small calibers do you guys use N 133 for ? I have 8 lbs of it for 6mm ppc but don't use that much of it. Looking for another way to use it up.

I use it in 17 Fireball, 20 Practical and .223/5.56

Have found nothing better in the first two.

223 with 40 gr bullets, one of the most accurate 223 loads that I have and very good velocity also.

I used to have a awesome load using N133 in my 6 BR with 55 gr Nosler BTs. Then I managed to lose my load notes somewhere in a series of moves and can’t find my recipe. I was using Rem 7-1/2 primers in Lapua brass. It made tiny little holes in paper and was the bane of Rockchucks and Prairie dogs out to 600 yards. I switched to AA2230 because N133 was hard to come by at that time; at least in my area. 2230 never did shoot as well. I need to have someone run a quickload calc for me on this as I too picked up 8# of it recently in hopes of recreating that original load. I have a target with a charge weight of 35 gr listed but was too stupid to write what the powder was! I hate it when I do that to myself.

Ben: Any chance you have a loaded round, still available to empty and see what charge amount you used ?

Good thought, I shot em all at prairie dogs some time ago. I have a buddy though who was using the same or similar load in his. I’ll have to check with him.
