I use BLC-2 or W-748 for most everything from .223 to .30-06 and 8 X 57. Meters very consistently. Not the best for heavy Magnums like the 300 WM, but comes close to the universal powder for most stuff.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

I use Ramshot TAC for .223 and can't complain. I have data from Western Powder with TAC for the Garand, but haven't tried it yet. It's about the best metering powder I have.

I switched to IMR 8208xbr for .223 and 22-250. Excellent results.
