I just recently started using Ramshot powders. Before that I used IMR and Hodgen, Alliant powders. I stopped using alliant because of huge lot to lot varations. Im using ramshot powders in all my guns know and having very good results. It fills the cases more , due to the very small ball powder,seems to be constant in different temps, accurate, and cheap. I have heard many times that ball powder is easier on barrels and has lower flame temps. I didn't pay much attention until I started using it, I swear you can grab the barrel after 5 or 7 shoots and tell the difference.Im using magnum in my 6.5 twist 22 dasher to shoot the 100 grain wildcats with 20 fps extreme spreads with little effort. Either way im trying to use in in all my guns and am having the best of luck with it. I don't here many people talking about it and wanted to see what every one else thought about it.
