    Anybody ever try any Accurate Data Powder 68? Natchez has it on sell for $68 for 8lb. Price sounds good don't know about the quality.

    MadDog,
    It better be good! A bud and I just split 32 lbs. It did quite well in my .300 shamu w/180s. Haven't got the full work-up in the .243, still going up. It looks to be just about a direct replacement for IMR 4831. That might change, depending on cartridge.

    You sure the #68 is that slow? Your not talking about the Data powder#79 are you?

    Did you get it from Powder Valley? Also, care to share what your .300 Shamu is? How deep in E TX are you?
