sorry for not being clear. I was looking for someone who has used the powder and has an opinion about it's use

I bought 2 lbs to try out. Appears to have the proper burn rate and is announced to be very temp stable. 6.5CM, 25-06, and 270W are what I'm gonna load it in. Using RL 16 in those w/ no complaints but I like results I get from the VV N5 powders in other cartridges. Their description of its usage specifically says 6.5CM so I'm giving it a try in those I listed. N570 has given me great results in my 264WM w/ 156 Berger and I've got N565 loaded up for my 6.5PRC w/ 140s but waiting for cooler weather right now.

I’m using it in my 300 Sherman and in my 260ai. I am completely impressed with it. Faster than H4350, on par With RL16, but it is smaller and denser. I am able to load more powder at less of a compressed load.

In my 260ai I ran it up to 3125fps with a 127g LRX. In the 300 Sherman it will run a 181g Hammer near 3100fps.

I’m getting Magnum performance out of it.

I just ordered a 8lb jug as I feel once the Creedmoor crew get ahold of it, it will become unobtainable.
