  1. Wickline

    Excellent. Faster than…
    Excellent. Faster than N540 which is faster than N550. N530 proved to be ” the” powder for my .416 Ruger and many other powders were tested.

  2. Sandl Carroll

    I would buy this product again and again
    very good powder

  3. Darren Carney

    Worth every penny!
    I use this product in my direct impingement AR and it is the cleanest burning, most stable powder around. It allows 1″ groupings at a 100 yards and when I clean the bolt carrier assembly I find almost no residue, even after 500 rounds! It may cost a little more but it is worth it for its metering properties as well as what I discussed above. I will buy again!

  4. Ricky Leigh

    Great for .223 and .308
    This is my go-to powder for 77 gr .223 and 150 gr .308 loads. It’s clean-burning, groups tightly, and meters very well in my progressive press.
