    An outstanding powder in the 22-250 and the 220 Swift. Too slow for use in the .222 and the .223, but can be used in the .222 Mag. It also works very well in a large number of cartridges that have a similar case capacity in the 308 size range.

    Maybe with the light bullets. .25-06 is a tad overbore for the burn rate of H380

    Its decent in .30-06 with bullets 150-180 grains. And a suitable powder to run in a Garand.

    I've used it in the 22-250 and the 35 Rem. Probably should consider using mag primers with it for max success.
