Re: what is varget powder?

Varget is a powder produced by Hodgdon , it is part of their extream line which is not suposed to be temperature sensitive.

It burns clean and meters very well , it is an extruded powder thats grains are very small , it's an great choice in alot of Varmint calibers (your 22-250) and alotof larger calibers to like the 308 case based calibers. Their are some powders out their that will give more velocity but few that will give good velocity , consistancy and arn't temp sensitive.
