Hey I about to run out of my last keg of Accurate 2200 for my .223 and I need to find a replacement powder. I am currently loading Nosler 55 gr Ballistic Tip with 23 gr of 2200 in my AR with a 1-9 twist any recommendations? I have noticed a lot of discussion about Varget but isn't it a stick powder and not necessarily good with the lighter bullets? I would prefer to stay with a ball type power simple for better powder measure throw consistency. Recommendations welcomed!

Go here http://www.ramshot.com/powders/ and click on X-Terminator and Tac.

H335 works well. Varget is also good but doesn't meter as well.

Tac shoots real well. X-Terminator is closer to 2200 in burn speed.

Thanks guys. I am intrigued with X-Terminator, is anyone using it for their .223 with a 55 gr bullet?
