    It meters about the same, with better velocity and less impulse peak pressure.

    Exclamation Added bonus

    perceived recoil is reduced!!!!!
    Big bonus for me and my back!!!!!
    Accuracy is largely unaffected (still shooting a less than .378 group)

    Thanks for the feedback. I've been using Ramshot TAC for my .223 but had heard good things about varget. I'll have to get some and try it out.

    I'm using it for both .308 and .223. My reloads have been very accurate.
