Hodgdon CFE223 Smokeless Powder (1 lb or 8 lbs)

(145 customer reviews)



Hodgdon CFE 223 Smokeless Powder

Introduced in January 2012, this versatile, spherical rifle propellant incorporates in its formula CFE, Copper Fouling Eraser. This ingredient, originally used in military propellant, greatly deters copper fouling. It contributes to longer periods of top accuracy with less barrel cleaning time. Being a spherical powder, metering is superbly accurate. CFE 223 yields top velocities in many cartridges such as the 204 Ruger, 223 Remington/5.56mm NATO, 22-250 Remington and the 308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO, plus many, many more. Match, Varmint and AR shooters will love this one!

    CFE223 is an excellent powder for small to medium case cartridges with lighter weight bullets. The powder burns clean making it a good choice for the AR-15 as well as bolt guns. I have shot the 70 grain Speer with good results. Powder Valley’s shipping and service are top notch.

    Great powder….

  41. Arnold (verified owner)

    It took about 2 weeks to finally find some in stock but finally. I then ordered 5 pounds and it said only 4pounds available so i ordered 4 pounds. After my order was made i went back and it still showed more 1-pound canisters in stock. Very frustrating.

  42. Matthew (verified owner)

    Powder Valley is my go to business for smokeless powder. The shipping is fast and Powder Valley doesn’t charge ridiculous amounts for the hazmat shipping cost and Powder Valley’s prices are better than the prices in the local gun shops. I will be shopping here from now on.

    I am extremely happy with my order of an 8 lb. container CFE223 powder. Most places I have looked don’t have it in stock and the ones that do have it priced at 50 or 60 dollars above Powder Valleys price. I will definitely be buying more.

  121. SAM (verified owner)

    While not the most temperature stable powder, it is by far the most accurate in my 16″ 1:8 AR. I load 1-1.5 grains less than max. Consitent drop out of my Lee Deluxe Powder Dropper with an occassional 0.1 grain variance. Powder Valley had far better pricing than anyone else and their order processing and shipping were lightening fast. Will be ordering from PV again.

    Great for 6mm ARC.
