Has anybody used it in a FAL?

Have not used it, but Hodgdon lists it between H 322 and H 335. Better suited for 5.56 I would think. However Hodgdon claims good metering and useful in .308 with light bullets, ie 147gr to 155gr. Recommended load is 43.0grs Benchmark, 150gr Nos. BT. 2752 fps @ 49,000 cup. Winchester cases and Fed. 210M primers.
For MIL cases, you'd need to drop charges by 10~12%
