    Tbis 2206 seems the go. Why does it always say 2206H.it's that the same thing. Sorry for my ignorance. My mate has said he'll load some up using my old brass. I suppose I'll use speers. What do you use Huk? Does expand sweet at a slightly lower speed?

    AR 2206 is the older powder ...they added the H back 10 or so years back....something to do with some other unimportant shit..... same as 2213 became 2213sc..short cut as they made the granuals smaller
    2206h is a great powder in...well pretty much everything...not so flash in poohseventy but it does work LOL.....had old old manual that gave data to do it.

    As said, 2206 is an older powder, no longer made. Replaced by 2206h, which is slightly slower burning than 2206 was according to ADI.

    From that table looks like the 80-85gr bullets would be the go for up to red spikers and hinds.
    I used H414/W760 with 85-87gr bullets from an 18" barrel 243 but that was before I had a crony.
    Mates did complain about the muzzle blast and fireball at dusk. But the deer and goats still fell over.

    I get 2950fps with a 85gr and 44.5gr 2209 in my 16" 243. But im gonna drop to 44 as its a little hot with the sierra 85gr varmint i use now, worked fine with BT speers.

    The 87 vmax will no longer group well as the stability is too low in my 10twist barrel being this short. I get about 1.5" at 100 with it where the sierra flat base shoots bug holes.

    I use 3031 with the 85 tsx and 2206h with the 87vmax and quite by chance they shoot same poi the 2206h is slower burning than 3031
