USA -(Ammoland.com)- Hodgdon, The Brand That’s True, is excited to announce the release of CFE BLK, a new Spherical powder specifically formulated for the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge. CFE BLK joins the Hodgdon CFE family of CFE 223 and CFE Pistol.
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. It is truly a remarkable new propellant.
This new powder will be available in January 2017 in one-pound (1lb) and eight-pound (8lb) containers at quality reloading powder dealers.
Complete load data for this versatile and useful propellant will be accessible December 2016 on the Hodgdon Reloading Data Center here.
