I bought a can of Hodgdons CFE (handgun powder) a couple of years ago, the only load data I have found is from Hogdon, their listed velocities tend to be a bit higher that what I get when testing their load data through my chronograph.

Has anyone seen load data for this powder in any other manuals?

Thanks..j

I believe it's too new to be in the bullet maker's
manuals yet. Hodgdon is the only source on that I've seen
on it.

P.S.
Those boys at that powder makers tend to use longer than
normal barrels. More than a few folks have commented on
that in the past. Noticed it myself recently studying
some of their powders for the 45Colt & ACP and the
.223Rem.

That powder isn't in the latest Sierra manual I have. Don't have very new manuals otherwise.

With Hodgdon powder you have to read the "fine print" a lot of their test velocities are done with 10" barrels.

The closest data to my chronograph results from them is in the Cowboy Action section of their manual.

Lyman has some Hodgdon powders and their listed velocities, are very close to the same results I get.

I suspect that the CFE is too new or not that popular.

Thanks for checking.. j

John. Found data with This powder at:

http://www.hodgdonreloading.com

They have a section where you select caliber/powder/and
bullet. It has this powder listed with over a dozen in
45ACP alone.

Lists pressure/velocity and such. Found this researching
TiteGroup and Universal. Good info there.

Hope this helps,
Wade

I have that, I was looking for a different source of data, sometimes the Hodgdon data is not as accurate as some of the other sources. Their velocity listings tend to be a bit high.
