It's simply more cost effective than H869 or H50bmg and similar to the other 50 cal stuff on the market. I've got one keg (wc872)of the two I bought two years ago; I'd buy another couple of kegs but I'm not buying unless I'm low on stuff at present. Your rifle will either like or hate these powders, much like the other slow ball powders on the market.
I wish I could get more 5010, but H50bmg is the only thing really available in 50 cal stick that is remotely affordable at present. Rl50 is out there, but it's even more bulky and not that available, plus the price is similar to the other new stuff.
