    6.5 creedmoor cfe223

    Has anyone tried cfe223 in the 6.5 creedmoor?
    I played around with it alittle with 143 gr eld-x so far it pushing 2740 fps with an sd of 14 from 10 round. Group size was .5 moa
    Going to see if I can get the ad into single digit. Will aneal case and try to get a more consistent neck tension.
    I am using S&B cases from the 140 fmj ammo I've shot.

    About 2 1/2 year ago, at the time I was pretty new to reloading, I tried some for my .308. I bought it mainly because of in resistance to copper fouling and did find a load that worked for me in mild weather (like 65-75°F in Arizona). But . . . I just found that it was just too temperature sensitive for me and quickly couldn't hold the good groups as Arizona heated up.
