Does anyone use the Ramshot X-Terminator powder? It's about the only powder available in town for .223.

Generally, I use Varget or 3031. None around, at the moment. Should have bought the 8# keg of Varget when I had the chance!

No srp here either. H335 for me, but I'm new to this caliber.

Good to hear! I have plenty of 55 gr bullets, I think I'll grab a couple pounds. At least there is load data available for it and if TSHTF, I will still be able to fling lead down range.
