H-380 will also give you better barrel life. And you can use a powder dump which is faster.

    Guys. I have never tried to put up target pics or any other pics. This is strange.

    I see there is a lot of Varget showing up - I can't disagree. I get similar accuracy out of IMR4895 as well. Have a 1:12 twist and shoot 50gr blitzkings. I don't have a target to put up as proof, but this was a one shot group at a little over 200...

    I use 35 grains of varget as well in a tika t3 with a 1-14 twist. I used to use IMR 4064 but when I switched to varget, my groups tightened right up. After reading what everyone is using, I see that H380 seems to be a very popular powder as well, I will have to try that next.
