I heard of IMR 8208 BR from AccurateShooter.com in a short article on substitute powders. Here is the quote: " We know guys who switched from Varget to IMR 8208 XBR in the .308 Win and they liked the 8208 XBR so well they never looked back."
Based on my experiences Varget is in a special category when it comes to temperature insensitivity. I used it in a 22-250 and did all sorts of testing in temperatures from 105 to 33 and chronograph readings and POI at 200 yds proved to me that hodgdon's description was correct.
How were your velocities with 8208 & with which bullets?
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
