Tried some loads with my bolt .223 yesterday . Very nice powder, meters great through Charge Master . Very low ES and SD. Very accurate. I ordered a box of the 69gr Tipped Match Kings today from Midway. Will try them out and report back

yep but let's just keep this to ourselves. cool
I have used it from .223 to 6.5 Creedmoor and it's a good powder... I personally like it better than Varget which I now rarely use.
I just got two more 8 lb of it.

I keep seeing such good reports for this powder, I will try it if the CFE 223 that I have several pounds of doesn't work well in the Grendel. For velocity it will not reach the CFE but does match 8208 XBR which is another good powder for consistency from what I have heard.

You have my attention. How hard is this powder to get? If I can get enough, I could make it my dedicated AR powder.

Down here in Houston it's in just about every store that sells powder. It's a stick powder but I haven't had any issues with it in my measure.
