280AI, 140 gr AB loads. Ever use Varget?

Have a Cooper 280 AI, looking to start reloading. Will first try 140 grain Nosler Accubonds. I have a boatload of Varget on hand, and see it was mentioned as acceptable on Hornady's website.

Anyone use Varget with success?
Thoughts on why no one seems to reference it as a good 280AI powder on this site?

Did see a positive comment on H4831sc for this bullet, and also concerns on RL22 temp stability...

thanks,
Drew

Heard IMR 7828 SSC is another good powder for the .280 AI.
