Great info Jared, I have a bottle of XBR 8208 that is supposed to be super temp stable. I just found some load data for 7.62X54R. Looks pretty interesting a .308 bullet @180 grain with 39.8 grains as a starting load yields 2400 fps. Max is 42.8 grains which yields 2550 fps Looks like I'm going to have to work up a custom load and try this stuff out finally.

Thanks Mark. Glad to share. That powder sounds on par with most Mosin powders for velocity. My Varget load only gets me 2400 with an SMK. That's with a very low charge, below minimum but accuracy falls off if I go up.
