    If you shoot smaller caliber rifles such as the .223 etc, you should give this powder a try.

    It's given me the best accuracy in my .223 of any powder I've tried and I've been through a bunch.

    23.0 grns behind a 69 Grn matchking produced fantastic groups. 23.8 is the max load for that bullet in the .223.

    It's an old benchrest powder brought back just a short time ago.

    Try a pound next time you see it. It's supposed to be good up to light .308 rounds, but I've only used it in 22 calibers.
