It's like the SC (short cut) powders, will meter MUCH better. Hope it functions just as good as the tiny "logs"

I have the burn rate chart on my phone. That one does not show an IMR Enduron powder beside H-Varget.

IMR-4451 is sitting right beside H-4350, though.

I got nuthin.

IMR 4166 is close to Varget in burn rate. For some cartridges that Varget is useful in shorter granules would sure be nice. 223 and 6.5 Grendel are a couple that come to mind

Varget is very hard to beat IMO.

Varget is the best powder in my .308 and IMR4064 follows.

I agree with the two but like 4064 better. Recently made myself change to Varget just to have it more temp stable from 20 degrees to 100 degrees.

I see that S.W. Precision is a double-base powder. Would that make it sensitive like R17?

If you really like 4064 try 4166 it and 4064 are right together on the burn rate chart. 4166 is one of the Enduron powders that is very temp stable

Thanks a bunch, so is it IMR4166 or something different?
