    Ramshot TAC is my 5.56 go to powder now. It is cheaper than most others and has some killer velocity's.

    All I could find was BL-C(2) and H4198 (as opposed to IMR4198). I had the BL-C(2) flowing consistently in less than 5 minutes. As long as it shoots well I think I'm done here. Thanks for the responses.

    the Dillon drop works for volume, not precision. Those who want accurate drops on their Dillon press set up a Hornady powder drop system.

    Thanks, I'll give 748, H335, and IMR4198 a try.

    Winchester 748 was the choice of powder I used when I was into reloading 5.56mm/.223. I have friends reloading with varget powder, so let me ask them if they have any suggestions.

    I've reloaded probably close to 10k rounds of .223 the last few years and H335 is my powder of choice.

    Have you tried H335? While not a ball powder per se, I have had better results with it metering than Varget. I have also had good luck with IMR 4198.

    Both powders meter well for my .223 loads in both my Hornady standard and my Redding 3BR.....

    Ball powders for .223

    I've about had it trying to get Varget to meter consistently through my 550. I used to be able to do it when dropping 43 grains for 7.62x54R, but its not working for lighter charges in .223. Anyone have recommendations for ball powder?
