I don't reload, so I don't know anything about this powder, but the description says its good for .223. The price looks excellent.

For 223 and 308.... Ramshot TAC is better than X-term

How does Varget compare? I hear it meters well and is a overall good powder.

I just bought 8 pounds of Ramshot Tac. I have heard TAC is better but if that stuff is somewhat close it might be worth buying if you buy a ton of it. The Hazardous handling fee if freakin killer.

It is a little on the fast side but it will work in the 223 with lighter bullets. Works pretty good for 55 gr. It is too fast for the 308 for ideal performance... TAC is a better choice for 308 and for heavy bullet Match loads in the 223. It is an ideal powder for 6.8.

Varget is slower and one of the best powders for heavy bullets in both 223 and 308.

TC.

Varget do not meter well (same for RL15). Ramshot TAC do meter well.
