is this a good powder for 5.7? it works well for .223 and other rifle cartridges, so what do you guys think about using it for the 5.7?

My exprience with VARGET has been good in the 223, but only with heavier bullets, like 62gn and up. The most accurate load I have for my .223 is 24.9gr of VARGET pushing the 69g BTHP, I find on the lighter bullets 40 to 50g work much better with H335 or Win748. I get the best results with H335 when I light it with a magunum primer.

Thats what I have found, but only on .223 As for the 5.7 I have all the stuff for my Pro 2000 and ready to, but have not stepped off and started loading them yet. I am fairly new to reloading so I started on the .223.

I have gathered several great loads from this site, and once I get my Crono for Christmas I will most likely start on this quest.

Lets see what the masses have to say on this one
