    I have had excellent results with this new powder in the 243 AI with 80 grain Berger bullets. Velocities are in the mid 3300's and accuracy is all I could hope for. Pressures seem light enough. I think that with any powder you must match it's burning rate and prefered bore diameter to your needs.

    I've been using it in my 22-250AI with 80 gr Berger VLDs for a MV of 3,360 Average. I like the stuff.
