Well, for at least part of your statement, it may be as good as it gets with weights up to about 150-154 grains. HOWEVER, after that point the velocity / pressure curve comes into play. Now, you can still shoot it with all weights, but you have to back off somewhat at the upper weight bullets, or pressures will occur early. But as far as a accurate and relatively non temp sensitive powder, 7828 is tough to beat.
