Anyone try it? I cant find any h335 or varget.

If you have tried it what are the good/bad/neutral aspects of this powder.

This will be used on a 16in carbine lenght 1:9 twist. Under a 55 grain bullet

I've used about 3lbs of it, mostly under Hornady 55gr FMJs. Meters great, shoots clean, about 150fps faster than what I was getting with 748. I also loaded some 7mm/08 with it and was getting sub 1" groups (0.81" was the best of the day) with 140gr Accubonds. So far I've been very happy with it.

Jeez I just bought a keg a few weeks ago from wideners and they're out. I just checked grafs and no dice either. Shoot. Sorry man if I see any I'll give a shout.

I bought a keg of win 231 I didn't need and shoulda got more H335. Dangit! Oh well its a good excuse to order some more when/if its in stock. I need SPP. Can't have too many!

I have used CFE223 and I do like it. It flows like water, cleans up really easy
