    Who else is using or tried these powders? I'm working with SW4350, (have Precision but, not tried it yet) and I'm still characterizing/evaluating it for my use in 6.5 Creedmoor.
    So far, it's as advertised. What I'v found is it's about right on par with H4350, also it hasn't shown instability to temperature. The only thing that it doesn't do well is on the ES and SD area but, that is some kind of anomaly, because these high numbers still group way under 1 MOA. I find accuracy nodes where there shouldn't be accuracy nodes?! I'm still looking for pressure and not quite there yet...

    Savage 10FP with a take off Savage 6.5 Creemoor 26" Varmint contour. Minimal headspaced (have my own gauges).
    Starline LRP, now a 3X firing. Haven't trimmed or annealed yet, just bumping the shoulder back .001-.002.
    CBTO of 2.243.
    140 Nosler Custom Comp. This bullet performs!
    CCI-BR2 primers.
    Magneto Speed

    "Summary

    Shooters World SW4350 Smokeless Powder 1 Lb is an excellent extruded powder. SW4350 Smokeless Powder is a great choice for heavier bullets in .243 Remington, 6.5mm Creedmoor, and 300 Winchester Magnum. The burn rate is slightly slower than H4350 and similar to IMR 4350; however, superior accuracy was noted when tested against H4350 in the 6.5 Creedmoor . Please follow this link for reloading information ."
    Yes, it is slightly slower than H4350, I'm not pressure out yet. I had finally gotten a hold of an 8lber of H4350 and it's the **** but, SW4350 is a nice alternative.
