Here is the official word from Accurate Powders. Bottom line is that you should use AA 2460 load data. From Accurate Powder Technical Department: "This powder is the same burn rate as 2460 which is ever so slightly slower than the std 2230. We use the same reference powder for both 2460 and 2230-C to certify the product. Special notes on 2230-C powder. We do not have specific published load information for the 2230-C powder. It's a military surplus â€œBallâ€ or â€œSphericalâ€ powder, which is basically a derivative of the standard AA 2230 and 2460 powders. 2230-C is slightly slower burning than the standard AA 2230 product, which makes it more equivalent to AA2460. Â· You can use any published load information, on any caliber configuration, for the standard AA 2460 product AS IS. Â· The powder can be used in a wide variety of caliber/configurations,too many to list here). Â· For additional reloading data--Please visit our website www.accuratepowder.com ." MODERATOR: This is still a very useful powder, particularly for lighter bullets, and $60 for 8 lbs. represents one of the best values around.
