Most accurate powders I have tried are, in order of accuracy, Varget, Bencmark and H4895.
My buddy swears by H8208, but it never did anything in my VSSF II better than Varget.
In my 22-250AI, H4350 is the most accurate followed by Varget.

Cheers.

Of all the powders guys have listed above, none did as good as RL10x/60g Berger Varmint in my 22" TC 5R barrel. Spooky accurate.

Would like to know what powders members have used and can recommend that I try. I don't plan to use bullets over 60 grains As it is a factory 1/14" twist I believe in a weatherby vanguard. It likes factory 55 grain soft point winchester ammo Thanks you all for your help. Tribb
I prefer varget

I shoot a 220 Swift 1-14 twist, and use IMR 4064 for ever. Velocity at 3900fps, 55gr Sierra. If you step up a twist or two, then you can use heavier bullets if that what you want. That will slow down the velocity of 55grs bullet according to Sierra. I kept my velocity below 4000 fps to slow down the burn out of the barrel. It's been shorten once, and rechamber.
