You guys have right to carry up there ! That's a big plus. I've heard for hunters in WA that bad laws are on there way up there also. What about Idaho and Montana ?

Sorry let me rephrase that, its still quite a bit better but Im afraid its going to get way worst. Also sorry calhunter about your thread, I dont have any info on that powder. Good luck with it though and if you try it let me know how it works out!

I haven't found anything on this powder yet, my buddy has a couple pounds on order so well see what it does in the 22-250.
By the way, Montana we don't need no stinking laws.

I don't have any yet but I do know that IMR4064 and varget have produced 1 hole groups in my 22-250.If you go to the IMR web site or call they may have some data or tell you what the burn rate is in comparison to other powders. I did find on the site that 36.6 gr with a 36 gr bullet is about 50,000 psi and a vel. around 4,100 fps
