Oddly enough it (H870) gave me the best combined accuracy and velocity in my wife's 7mm RM with 140 grain NAB's. Same velocity as RE22 and better accuracy.
I concur, it is VERY dirty. Chunks, even....
In point of fact, I think I have smoked a batch of ham hocks and the smoker was cleaner inside than a barrel after 10 rounds with H870. Oh well, can't argue with what works.
Still have one unbreached pound, then I will try to switch it over to H100V.
