Anybody ever try this stuff?

I've looked into it a bit and it seems comparable to Varget, which is my usual. However Varget is like a unicorn these days. I'm sure it'll pass, but I'm gonna try this stuff in the meantime.

I haven't tried this stuff yet, but I've researched it a few times.  However...  

Alliant RL-15 (Reloder 15) is damn near an identical swap for Varget. Many years ago (after the Sandy Hook buying panic) Varget disappeared then, too.  I switched to RL-15, and in several different loads, they were only 0.1gr apart.

Welp, I'd venture to say that SW's Precision Rifle powder is GTG. Flows like Varget, looks like Varget, shoots like Varget. And you can actually find it. Velocity was on par too. Worked up a batch and headed to the range. Shot 4 shot groups at 100 today from the Savage 308, 18". I'm happy with it.
