1 lb. of W680 ~ What rifle loads?

I happened across a pound of W680, appears to be in great shape, what can I use it for? Any links for outdated components?

Thanks, Richard

    W680 was (and still is) the factory powder for Winchester Hornet and Bee loads. It is usable in those two as well as the Fireball and the 7.62x39, but little else.

    Accurate 1680 is similar but a bit faster in most uses, so if you have data for AA1680 in a given cartridge, you can substitute W680 at START levels. Maximums will be different.
    I may be a bit crazy - but I didn't drive myself.

    Also recommended for .30 Carbine & .256 Win. Mag, at least according to Ed Matunas, 1980.
