Hodgdon CFE 223 Propellant

posted on April 9, 2012

Originally developed for the U.S. military, CFE 223 contains proprietary chemistry named “Copper Fouling Eraser,” which deters fouling while shooting; the result is lengthened periods between cleanings, and less time spent doing so.

Being a spherical propellant, CFE 223 meters easily. Handloading data for CFE 223 is currently available for 27 different cartridges, from .17 Rem. to .375 H&H Mag, in 147 loads, and is offered in 1- and 8-pound containers, retailing for $22 and $152, respectively.
