    I have been loading .223 on my single stage loader and bench mounted powder thrower. With IMR 3031 not being powder say like Unique it catches in the powder thrower and doesnt throw consitant weight so I weigh every charge, that works ok but I want to load them on my progressive loader with a case activated powder thrower and I know the powder will catch it it too and be inconsitant charges, does anyody now how to get around this problem? Any help will be appreciated.

    I had to weigh the charges with 3031. Switched to BLC2. It worked better in the powder measures. Some people don't like it, but it works for me.

    I had the same thing happening with IMR 4198.
    Like Pancho, I switched to H335, and I do use BLC-2 with good results.

    H335 gives me the accuracy .

    Thanks for answering phideaux and Pancho I will try the powders you all suggested. Maybe I will save the 3031 for the 30-30.
