    I haven't yet but I have high hopes for it. I currently shoot the 150gn NBT with IMR4350 (63.5gn) and am getting good velocity (3200fps). This load is 1/2 gn higher than Nosler's #6 max load but shows no pressure signs in my rifle. According to Alliant the burn rate is close to IMR4350 but provides higher velocities. This and the 160gn AB may be an even better combo. JohnnyK.
