Hodgdon Bl-C(2) Rifle Powder

BL-C(2) is a spherical powder that began as a military powder used in the 7.62
NATO, commonly known as the 308 Winchester. When it was first introduced to the
handloader, benchrest shooters and other target shooters made it an instant success. BL-C(2)
works extremely well in the 223 Remington, 17 Remington, 22 PPC and or course, the 308
Winchester, plus many more.

Hodgdon BL-C(2) rifle powder is a spherical powder originally used in the military for the 7.62 NATO and was a natural choice for the 308 Winchester. BL-C(2) has become especially popular for handloaders such as benchrest and target shooters. It works extremely well with 223 Remingtons, 204 Rugers and many others. This propellant comes in 1lb and 8lb containers.

    superb groups in my 20″ USGI FN upper with 75 and 77gr match bullets.
    Also performed excellent in my CZ550 308 with 175 SMK and 178 ELD-M bullets

    Outstanding behind 69 gr Sierra match hps. Burns very clean in my A2.

  3. william Mcglinchey

    works extremely well in 30/30 with 170 grain bullets

    This is a very good medium burn rate powder. Its very similar burn speed to Varget, Reloder 15 and Norma 203B. It will work very well in cartridges of the 308 Winchester family. It will also work well in smaller things with heavy bullets. I have had some of my most accurate groups with this powder. Center to center groups in the sub 1/4 minute range can be obtained in a quality rifle with other quality components and a competent shooter. The down side to this powder and the reason for 3 stars is the temperature sensitivity. This powder works well in moderate temps. In severe cold I have experienced hang fires due to delayed ignition, and in extreme heat (temps in the 105 and up range) I have experienced major pressure signs including blown primers. If you live or work in an area with a temperature extreme at either end of the scale this is probably not a powder for you. If you shoot in a more controlled environment this is a powder capable of remarkable accuracy. Just my 2 cents worth, take it or leave it.

    If you are shooting a 6.5 creed make sure it’s a large rifle primer brass and not a small primer brass. The small primers cause nothing but hang fires below 50° and anything above is a hit or miss. I am running hornady brass large primer pocket
    Federal Gm210m primers
    130 gr vld Bergers
    39.0 blc-2
    At 30° its avg 2770 fps and sd is 5.0
    I shoot prs and this load has worked flawlessly this past weekend in 19° weather in western PA. Mid February Hope this helps!

    This is my go to powder for 5.56 55gr fmjbt loads. 26.5 grains in LC brass with a CCI 41 primer and excellent accuracy. I would need to go a bit higher for M193 approximations but I like to leave a bit of room for margin of error.

    I have been using BLC2 for decades. It is a good 223 556 powder. It is also good for M1 garand loads. Look on the Hodgdon. Every powder order from powder valley comes quickly and never a hiccup yet.
