I loaded a couple of hundred about 5 years ago in.357 cases since my rifle loads 357 length better. When I shot them I got very good accuracy, moderate recoil and they were fairly clean . The data came from the Lyman #50 manual. 2.7 gr of 700x behind a 125 gr RNFP in Federal Ni cases with Federal sp primers. I think you will like the results. At the time I was running out of Solo1000 and trying replacement powders, 700x was not very available but I had some from Dad's collection so I tried it . Ultimately I went with Shooters World Cleanshot as it was more available and I liked it ,and still do.

I bought 16# of it about 5 years ago.

Just fished the first jug.

I use the same load for .38 110, 125,  157: 2.75gr.

Works great. Meters well.

I bought 10#'s from an estate, 700x works in a wide range of cartridges. Check out the Hodgen reloading data online. I've been loading 3.2 gr , 125 Cheycast and 130 Summer Enterprises bullets. Both bullets are coated in Hitek. Seems like a good load. 

Just my opinion, hope it helps

4.8 grains of 700-x under a 160 or 170 grain bullet in .45 Colt is my go to load for my rifle.
